closing tabs under Chrome with NVDA


Dan Beaver
 

Hi,


How do I do this?  I can close the entire browser but not just a tab.  I don't see a way in the help either.


Thanks.

Ctrl+w is what you are looking for.

Control w.  It may be that control f4 will close a tab as well but I don't recall if I've tried that command in chrome.

CTRL-F4 does indeed work.  In fact ctrl-w used to do something else in chrome, so if it works now, it's a change.

That was what I was saying, its Firefox's close tab.
I do feel that somebody who writes browsers shoulod suggest a best practice for control keys.

Actually, with multiple tabs open ctrl+f4 closes all tabs.  That is why I was trying to find out what would close just one tab.  It acts like alt+f4 and that surprised me.

I don't know why control f4 closes the program when there are multiple tabs opened.  Here, it closes the tab I'm in and nothing else.

Wow! Maybe there is something wrong with my system.  I have tried this lots of times because of my habit from using Firefox.  But no matter how many tabs I have open it always closes all of them and terminates Chrome.


Oh well.

Well, under Firefox ctrl+f4 closes the tab I am currently viewing.  ctrl+w closes the browser.  I have never tried using ctrl+w under Firefox before now.


Under Chrome ctrl+f4 closes the browser and ctrl+w closes the current tab if I have multiple tabs open.

Ctrl+f4 and Ctrl+w both close the current tab in Firefox, if it is the only tab open at the time the browser will close.  Chrome works the same.

I am using version 57.0 64-bit and if I open the File menu, it states that the Close tab shortcut is Ctrl+w, is it the same on your version?

Is everyone here talking about Firefox, or about Chrome, or are different
people talking about different browsers?

It seems to be getting a bit confused/ing to me...

Actually, with multiple tabs open ctrl+f4 closes all tabs. That is why I
was trying to find out what would close just one tab. It acts like alt+f4
and that surprised me.

Hi,



How do I do this? I can close the entire browser but not just a tab. I
don't see a way in the help either.



Thanks.

Dear all,

ctrl + w will work in any case. In Firefox, Crome, IE, Edge and other
browsers. The same applies for ctrl + t for adding a new tab or ctrl + tab
to switch between tabs. Please don't confuse with 100 different keystrokes.
These are the standard keystrokes and if you use other keystrokes then they
are customized or typical for a certain browser. But these keystrokes work
1000%.

Is everyone here talking about Firefox, or about Chrome, or are different
people talking about different browsers?

It seems to be getting a bit confused/ing to me...

Not on my system, something is weird.



I opened 3 tabs under Firefox and ctrl+w closed all of them and
terminated Firefox completely.



I am running Firefox ESR.

Well, under Firefox ctrl+f4 closes the tab I am currently viewing.
ctrl+w closes the browser. I have never tried using ctrl+w under
Firefox before now.



Under Chrome ctrl+f4 closes the browser and ctrl+w closes the current
tab if I have multiple tabs open.

Wow! Maybe there is something wrong with my system. I have tried this
lots of times because of my habit from using Firefox. But no matter

Chrome.



Oh well.

Hi,


I just checked Firefox and it is the same. 


Yesterday when I tested the ctrl+w to close a tab it closed the entire browser.  I was very careful about how I performed the test but now testing it again it is working correctly.  I am not sure if I got an erroneous report of the tabs I had opened or something else but it is  functioning correctly now.  It is closing just the current tab.  Interesting!


Thanks.
