When I close a tab I want it to go away. Instead it goes to my taskbar and I end up with a ton of open windows! How do I prevent this from happening? Thanks.

How do I stop tabs I close at the top of the screen from going to the taskbar? They just keep building up until it slows down my computer!

Hi mick-healy, what method do you use for closing tabs? Any of these methods should work:

  • Click the small X on the tab
  • Right-click the tab > Close Tab
  • Ctrl+w keyboard shortcut
