Closing Documents from the Open Documents List

You can close documents from the Open Documents list. You can close more than one document at a time from the Open Documents browser.

The Open Documents browser is a convenient way to close multiple documents because you do not have to locate each document window individually.

  • Do one of the following:
    • Click Window, hover over the item for an open document, and click Close close.gif.
    • Click Window > Browse Open Documents or press Ctrl + Tab, hover over the item for each open document you want to close, and click Close close.gif. Click in the graphics area to close the Open Documents browser.
