Kindle Fire: Close All Open Silk Browser Tabs

If you have a lot of open tabs while browsing the web via the Kindle Fire Silk browser, you don’t have to close them individually. Here’s a tip on how to close them all at the same time.

If you have a lot of open tabs while browsing the web via the Kindle Fire Silk browser, you don’t have to close them individually. Here’s how to close them all at the same time.

Here I have 10 different tabs open – which is the limit of tabs to have open. Rather than close each one individually, I want to close them all at once.

Press and hold the tab navigation arrow on the upper left side of the open tabs.

Silk Browser Open Tabs

The following message window opens. Tap Close All Tabs.

Close All Tabs

That’s it! Make sure to check out my other article for managing bookmarks on the Kindle Fire.

    yep, it may work on a fire phone, but not the kindle fire HDX.

      I have a kindle fire hdx as well, no arrow either. So what’s the solution. Open windows slow down my kindle.

    I had this problem as well with my Fire 7” bought just a few weeks ago. it was a real pain…until i ‘zoomed’ in by pinching the screen and then tapping on the ‘X’ Seemed to help enormously…

    What ‘navigation arrow to the left?’ Which Fire tablet have you got? Can’t be the new 7”…there’s NO navigation arrow at all. Explain please?

    No arrow? Press on one of the x-es and hold. Close menus pops up.

      Works fine if you have a ‘responsive’ screen…sadly at this price my Fire takes a lot of ‘tapping’ on the X to have any affect…I guess you pay a cheap price and live with the consequences…having said that it works pretty well for casual viewing and saves booting up my desk-top. I should have bought the Lenovo Tab 7”. My local retailer has it on sale for ten pound more than the Fire. and I believe it has ‘face recognition.’ What’s not to like?

    I have cheapest Fire too. Repeated tapping works sometimes but holding on x works every time. Hold for one second and clear all tabs me u pops up.
