[IE8]How can I close the last tab like closing other tabs?

Hi all,

Sometimes, I want to close all tabs quickly by clicking the "x" button on
each tab. But strangely, the last tab does't have a "x" button so I cannot
close it ! Is there any way that I can close all tabs without closing the IE8
window?

By the way, how can I make the "New" tab button in a static place in the
toolbar instead in the tab band?

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,
Zach

Hi,
I haven't heard of a way to do either of these things. I don't believe that
either is possible.

No because there always has to be one tab open for the window to stay open.
E.g. try using Ctrl-w to close your tabs and see what happens? <eg>

Use Ctrl-t and you won't care where it is.
