[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.
