25 Time Saving Computer Tips Day 23: Easily Close Windows and Tabs

Here are a few more easy time saving tips when you’re online! To be honest I’ve just about run out of ideas, so if you have any more I’d sure love for you to share them. 😉 These are two that are pretty simple though, and I use them all the time:

On Windows

  • Ctrl + F4 – Closes the current tab you’re in
  • Alt + F4 – Closes the current program you’re in


On Mac

  • Command + W – Closes the current window you’re in
  • Command + Q – Closes all your windows


Try them out and let me know what you think – and please share your tips if you have them too!
