Key stroke to close top window ie in ebay

more options

I have a Levono x223 with a short monitor running Window 7. In some websites, such a ebay, only the center portion of a pop up window fraem will show, such as clicking on the tracking number, resulting in my not being able to close the window. So far the only work around is to right click on the window and chose > This frame>Show only this frame> then click on the Go back one page arrow. I would like to find a way to either close the window with a key stroke, or some other simple way to close the window.

Can you zoom out the window to make the close button visible??

As an example of how that might work:

Hold down the Ctrl key and tap the - key a few times until a close button comes into view.

Close the overlay.

Reset the zoom level by either clicking the zoom level indicator in the address bar, or by holding down the Ctrl key and tapping 0 (that's a zero).

Can't you resize this window or is the window too large for your monitor resolution ?

Can you close the window with "Ctrl+Shift+W" ?

Can you zoom out the window to make the close button visible??
