I'm using Chrome 32 on an Android tablet (not phone) and just can't figure out how to close all open tabs in one go.

  1. Click on Tabs icon in upper right corner
  2. Go to options
  3. Click on close all tabs

  • Excellent, I didn't see that myself! Good thing your tab only has 'Yahoo' open... I may have posted something less.... clever in the past. Thanks for this info +1

    Unfortunately your answer does not work on tablets. There is no such menu option visible in Chrome 32 on an Android tablet. Jan 30 '14 at 20:07

According to this Google Support page, you can't.

You have to close tabs individually, at least on a tablet.


I went to Android's settings, then to apps, then to Chrome, and cleared the data and the cache. When I reopened Chrome, the tabs were all closed. This was done on a Asus Memo 7 tablet. I know it's combersome, but it beats manually closing 100+ tabs.
