HotKeySet("{End}", "Close")

Func Close()
    Exit 0
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", -2)
Global const $name_of_window = "Your Adobe Application Name"
Global Const $hWnd_adobe = WinGetHandle($name_of_window)

While (WinExists($hWnd_adobe))

ConsoleWrite("Your " & $name_of_window & " has been exited. Closing AutoIt exe" & @LF)

Exit 0

Or right click the tray icon and click exit

Please stick to one topic, even when you have 2 questions about your problem script.

You can always kill the script from it's trayIcon (which is also used for the suggestion I made in the other thread.)
Other option is like provided by the previous poster.
