You should post the pertinent code from your do-file and information about what version of Stata you are using (type  -about-) & the OS you are running.

Do the graphics appear before you maximize the window?  Can you -graph export- the combined graphics and view them in an external program?

Why do you "need to stop Stata"?  
Are you saying the combining 10 graphs causes your Stata to freeze or crash or that you have to hit the break button for some reason (e.g., the loop not breaking)?  Have you tried combining a smaller number of graphs to see if there is some threshold where your Stata starts freezing...e.g., try it with 2 graphics in the loop, then 4, and so on.  

This sounds to me like an issue for the technical support at Stata (and, based on your greeting line to, you might be hoping that this message would go directly to them), so you may want to look at this page:
