Internet Explorer 7 Tabbed Browsing

Close All Tabs Except the Current Tab

SUMMARY: Focus your attention solely on one open tab in Internet Explorer 7.

If you frequently open many website tabs when browsing in Internet Explorer 7, you may find the list of tabs confusing. Perhaps you've opened up five or six tabs, yet realize you only need to view the website represented by one particular tab.

Instead of closing each tab manually by clicking on them and clicking the "X" buttons, there's an easier way. Right-click the only tab you want remaining open in the browser and select "Close Other Tabs".
