Windows 7: Close all Photoshop windows at once

Close all Photoshop windows at once

Can it be done? I use PS Elements and sometimes I have 100 windows open but I have to close them 1 at a time. Control>alt>w doesn't do it and either does clicking on "close all windows" while holding the shift key down.

Can you give me a screen shot of them open in task manager on the processes tab? Thanks.

Version 5 but they should all be the same.

Do you know the name of the .EXE that is running when the application is running?

Just to add to WindowsStar's suggestion, this will show you how to take a screenshot.

Why do I need all that info? Isn't there a preference, keyboard letters, or something in the pulldown menus that will allow all the open windows to shut down at once? I did it one time but don't know what I did to make it work.

It was the fastest way I know to help you, without asking you a billion questions, you know a picture is worth a thousand words.

There is nothing to see. It is just a matter of using the right combo of pulldown menu selections, or maybe it can't be done but it sure is annoying to manually close 100 windows. I actually did close the all at once one time but I don't know what I did.

Close Many windows at once
Not sure where to put this but: In XP and Vista, you could hold down Ctrl, left click more than one window in the taskbar, and right click and close all the selected windows at once. This doesn't seem to work in 7. Is this functionality still there but using different keys?
