Close inactive tabs

  • [posted in the wrong forum before (Opera for Android), that discussion can be deleted]

    Hello,

    I'm really happy with the layout options for Opera, now that you can choose to have the tabs on top of the screen visible all the time.

    Now when I open several tabs and want to close one of the tabs that I'm currently not viewing, I have to select the tab in order to close it. I suggest to include a close button "x" for every tabs, including the inactive ones, so that I can close whichever tab at any time.

    Kind regards Jost

  • There's a close button on all tabs but it's disabled when you have too many opened tabs.

    This, it simply wouldn't fit. You'd want to click the tabs but would hit the x-close button by mistake instead.

    You have a few options:

    • Shift+click the tabs you want to close.
    • Click using the middle mouse button to close the tabs in the background.
    • If you want to close multiple tabs the above may be tiring. Move the tabs you want to close to the right, right-click the rightest one you want to keep and select "Close tabs to the right".
  • Thanks for your answers. I should have added that I'm talking about Opera for Android here.

    I can imagine that the close button for the tabs wouldn't fit on a tablet either, however, in Chrome it works alright.

  • I misunderstood your first post then, I thought this was about the desktop version.

    In that case... The close buttons should fit in a tablet because the tab bar is scrollable there.

    There's really no way to close background tabs in a tablet. I wish Opera for tablets would be more similar to the desktop one, for example if you could long press a tab to get a menu like right-click does in the desktop...

    I've noticed it. :-) And i really thought that the close button was there for inactive tabs too but it seems it isn't.

  • OP's question went unanswered. How to close tabs?

    Clck on the tabs buttonm at the bottom right and then on the X on the tab you want to close.
