You can close a pinned App Tab with a middle-click on that tab, but you can't use the shortcut key Ctrl+W to close a pinned tab. You can see that in the File menu if you open that menu via Alt+F to make the Close Tab entry appear.
That entry still works, so you can use Alt+F C to close that tab.

Thanks for the Reply, I found solution Control+F4 works fine and close pinned app Tab, thanks!

Is this changeable in settings? This prevents me from using app tabs, as I'm unable to close the tabs using the normal Cmd-w shortcut. If this was fixed I'd love to use app tabs...
