While browsing the web with Google Chrome, itâ€™s easy to get carried away and open dozens of windows filled with hundreds of tabs. Luckily, itâ€™s easy to close multiple Chrome windows at once on Windows, Linux, and Mac. Hereâ€™s how.
To close all of your Chrome windows quickly on Windows or Linux, click the vertical ellipses button (three dots) and select â€œExit.â€�
You can also press Alt-F and then X on your keyboard.
On a Mac, you can close all of your Chrome windows at once by clicking the â€œChromeâ€� menu in the menu bar at the top of the screen and selecting â€œQuit Google Chrome.â€�
You can also press Command+Q on your keyboard.
With Chrome on the Mac, if you have â€œWarn Before Quittingâ€� turned on, youâ€™ll see a message that says â€œHold Command+Q to Quitâ€� when you press Command+Q. So, youâ€™ll need to hold down Command+Q a moment for the quitting process to take place.
(Curiously, Chrome quits instantly without this warning if you press Command+Q while all of your browser windows are minimized to the Dock.)
After that, all your Chrome browser windows will close quickly.
If you need to get your windows back, youâ€™ll find them listed in your History when you restart Chromeâ€”unless you have configured Chrome to wipe its history upon closing or enabled permanent Incognito mode. Happy Browsing!
