Hello, 
I am running a web study with Prolific where I ask participants to enter their prolific ID at the start. Even though I specifically write in the study info that they should copy this before they start, they often do not. The web study runs in windowed mode so they cant exit to retrieve their ID and come back. Is there a way around this? A way to allow them to easily exit the task to copy their ID and come back? and have some logging of this so you know they havent exited for ages or to somehow cheat on the experiment? 
Thanks,
Katrina

They can exit any running script by pressing CTRL+Q (or the corresponding touch-screen gesture): https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v6/html/howto/howtokeyboardcommands.htm

If the script in question is already in some portion where any data is logged, you'll find the CTRL+Q command issued in the data's response column. The script.completed property, which you may want to log to the summary data, should also reflect premature termination.

In general, though, instead of requiring participants to enter their Prolific ID, the better approach would be to have Prolific forward the ID to Inquisit via URL parameter.

Thanks for the response, but the participant would then need to get back into the experiment from the point they quit at, to enter the ID info when the expt asks for it. Is this possible?

But the  ID in the URL is a great shout, thanks!

That, unfortunately, would not be possible.
