Google Chrome supports tabbed browsing, which means you can have multiple pages open at the same time in a single window. You can close the tabs or window, exit the program and, if necessary, force the close process (to be used as a last resort).

Steps

Method 1 of 7: Close tabs on Android and iOS

Close Google Chrome Step 1

Step 1. Press the button that displays the tabs

This is a number (the number of tabs open) inside a square at the top right between the search bar and the menu button.

  • The Chrome app does not support multi-window mode, but it can open multiple tabs simultaneously.
  • The interface of tablets resembles that of computers and the button that displays tabs will not be necessary.

Private browsing tabs can be closed with the same method as regular tabs
