[BCAB] closing chrome tabs, changed behaviour

Hi,

Are you sure that more than one tab is actually open though?  If you CTRL+W
and one window is open, then the browser will indeed be closed.

Next time you do it, press Control+Tab to see if another tab is open.

All the best

Steve

Thanks Steve.

I'm still having the issue where Ctrl + W closes  the entire browser though.
I'll be dropping an email to Google support later.

Regards,
LU

Hi,

You don't have to press tab, to get to notifications.  Just press
Alt+Shift+A.

All the best

Steve

Getting the same here when I close the tab with Ctrl + W. However, when I
launch Chrome again, there's a notification with a button to restore my last
open tabs. FYI JAWS doesn't automatically read the notification, I have to
go to the address field & tab till I get to it. HTH. 

Regards,
LU

Got to add to this.  I use control w to close the tab and it closes the
whole browser if it's the first time in that session.  I've signed into
Chrome, I open a new page from Google search, then close it with Control w,
and the whole session closes.  I do it again and just the new window closes.

I deleted Chrome and re-installed it afresh, but it's still doing the same.

Cheers

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.
