Tame your computer – seeking closure?

21 Oct

With the release of Internet Explorer (IE) 7, we all had to get used to “tabbed browsing”, which means you can have multiple websites open in a single browser window. Although this results in fewer items open on the taskbar, I know that there are some neat and tidy people out there that want to close tabs as they go along.

Here’s how:

  1. Press CTRL+W. OR
  2. Click the X on the tab. OR
  3. If you have a mouse with a wheel, click the tab you want to close with the middle mouse button. OR
  4. Right-click on the tab and select Close.

Try them out and find the one you like best!

By the way, if you hate tabbed browsing, you can turn it off.

Here’s how:

  1. If necessary, press ALT+T to display the menus.
  2. Select the Tools menu, followed by Internet Options.
  3. On the General tab, in the Tabs section, click Settings.
  4. Untick the Enable Tabbed Browsing check box.
  5. Click OK twice.
  6. Close and open Internet Explorer.

From now on every webpage will open in a new Internet Explorer window, like it used to do many, many moons ago.
