[BCAB] closing chrome tabs, changed behaviour

CTRL+W is the correct key to close a single tab.  It is listed as such in
Chrome shortcuts.  So it may not be designed to work with CTRL+F4, I have
never used that anyway.

All the best

Hi,

I'm not seeing that here and I am on the latest mainline build (77 I think).

Thanks.
Andrew.

Hi all

I've noticed over the last couple of weeks or so that when using Chrome on
windows 10, if I used ctrl +f4 to close a tab it closes the entire  Chrome
window not just the tab with focus. Ctrl -w does still close the focused tab
though.

It's very annoying as I'm still in the habit of automatically hitting ctrl
+f4. Has anyone else noticed it and/or can suggest a way around it.

I'm on chrome version 77.0.3865.120 

 

Thanks

Adrian.
