How to Make Word Close All Documents in Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 and 2010?

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2012-08-03

Usually the more word documents we open, the more close buttons we have to click on, for Microsoft Office itself does not provide tabs feature like in Firefox or IE8. Is there any add-in to add tabs to Word so that we could close all documents in one click? Yes, Office Tab is the best solution.

It is much easier to close all word documents if you download and use Office Tab, for multiple word documents can be managed as tabs into a single word window. Three ways can be available to close all word documents with Office Tab.

Method 1: Right click anywhere on the tab bar, the context menu appears. And Click Close All Tabs in the context menu, it will close all word documents tabbed on the tab bar, leaving the Word Template window.

See it below:


Method 2: Click the Close button at the top right corner of the word window, and the Office Tab window comes out, click the Close All Tabs, and all word documents will be closed.


Method 3: Office Tab brings tabs to Microsoft Office, which frees up the window task bar. Although you don't need to close word documents one by one on the task bar, it is available to close tabs one by one on the tab bar clicking the cross, if you want to close all word documents.

If you have not Office Tab installed, I am afraid it would take time and trouble to close all word documents. Because you have to click on the task bar to show each document, and then click the close button of each word document to close it. Keep repeating the above operation until you finish closing all word documents.

Office Tab allows you to use office tabbed windows to Microsoft Office, to open documents as tabs like in Firefox and IE8.
