I would like to save a file or close it automatically by running a command. Something like: keyboard ("EXIT")

If you want to close MATLAB using commands or shortcuts, see Birdman and Sean's answers.
If you want to "save a file or close it automatically" when that file is open in the MATLAB Editor rather than closing MATLAB itself, you can use the matlab.desktop.editor API.
help matlab.desktop.editor
help matlab.desktop.editor.Document
If you've opened a file using the low-level file I/O command fopen, use the fclose command to close it when you're done working with it.
