The steps in this guide are going to show you a way to quickly close all of your open tabs at the same time in the Google Chrome Web browser on your Apple iPhone.
- Open the Google Chrome app.
- Touch the Tabs icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap the Close All option at the bottom-left of the screen.
It’s pretty common to have a lot of open tabs on your iPhone’s Web browser. Mobile Web browsing is a little different than desktop Web browsing as the way that tabs are displayed makes you less aware of them.
While Google Chrome does show a number inside the tabs button at the bottom of the screen, when you don’t actually see all of those tabs like you would on your Windows 10 computer, it’s easy to ignore them.
But a lot of open tabs can make it tough to locate open pages that are actually important, so you may decide that it’s time to close those open tabs.
Luckily you don’t need to close them all individually. Our guide below is going to show you how to quickly close all of your open tabs in Chrome on an iPhone.
How to Close All of Your Open Tabs in Chrome on an iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.3.1. I am using the most current version of the Google Chrome app that was available when this article was written.
Step 1: Open the Chrome app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Touch the Tabs button at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the Close All button at the bottom-left of the screen.
If you did this accidentally there is an Undo option that will appear in place of the Close All button that you can use to restore the tabs that you just closed.
Note that closing all of the tabs in regular browsing or private browsing isn’t going to also close the tabs in the other browsing mode. You will need to select each browsing mode option at the top of the screen and close the tabs there separately.
