Close other tabs in browser.

Many users utilize tabbed browsing while they're on the Internet. Consequently, they can end up with many open tabs. Luckily, there is a way in all major browsers to close every tab you're not currently viewing, or all tabs to the right of it.

To close other tabs, right-click the tab you want to keep, and select Close other tabs or Close tabs to the right. The image shows an example of this menu in Google Chrome.


If you use the "Close tabs to the right" option, all the tabs to the left of the active tab remain open.
