Is there a shortcut for closing all the open tabs in Chrome browser on an iPad? Last time I checked, which has been a few years now, this function was available on the iPhone, but not on an iPad.
Is this still true? If so, why is it still missing after so many years? I can’t imagine a technical obstacle to implementing this feature.
In the upper right-hand corner of Chrome for iPad is a square with a number in it. That number is the number of tabs open.
- Single click the square-with-number.
- It’ll open a “tab overview” page.
- In the upper left hand corner of the “tab overview” page is a “close all” button.
- Clicking that button will close all tabs.
1/30/22 – no more box with number. Up in those teeny icons right at the top, there is a sideways smile emoticon. Tap it. The prompt to close all tabs comes up. Do it!
Go to the tabs icon in the upper right corner of Chrome -it looks like two sheets of paper. Tap and hold the icon. An option comes up to Close All X Tabs. Select that and they all close. Enjoy! -Kent
Nope. There is no sideways smile or “Close All” button. Just need to suck it up and tap the X on each window displayed… Chrome and Apple, come on now, get it together!
