After YEARS of browsing the internet and, when I wanted to close a window, always dragging a cursor up to the X box in the right corner to close the window I have one question. Wouldn't it be easier to just right-click where the cursor is at and have an option in the drop down to "Close Window" along with "Forward","Back","Reload","Copy","Paste" and the like?? Is the option there and I am just missing it? Is there any way to create this option?

I have an iOGEAR Wireless keyboard with ALL built in mouse options including media keys and function keys. Can I create my own hot key with a "Close Window" option??? Running Win 7.

Windows has this built in.

Alt + F4 = Close window
Ctrl + F4 or Ctrl + W = Close tab/document.

Kids these days not knowing their way around the keyboard. :P

Thanks.

After CTRL'ing + every key on the keyboard I did discover a bunch of shortcuts built in. N=new tab and so forth.

I actually hit CTRL + "K" and I got a browser page for a CONDUIT search page. It's sponsored by Bing. Is there any way I can change these?

What browser is this?

And just pre-emptive answer: check for plugins.
