In trying to close down open tabs I click the cross and see I must either close all tabs or cancel, there is no choice to close just the one only.

Sadly, once again, you've told us nothing about this system, and in particular for this topic, the program you are having problems with. I am assuming your browser but I have no clue which one. That said, other programs use tabs too so all I can say is check your options settings.

Don't know what is mant by "this system" ??? Sorry. I assumed it is understood "this system" means "this computer system". :( You told us nothing about your computer, the OS, or the program(s) you are having problems with.

I am having the same problem irrespective of which browser.So we are talking about browsers - that's good to know but understand you can have tabbed browsing in Word, and Excel, and several other programs use it too.

So now we know you mean your browser and that helps. But all browsers? Which Red X? The one on the open tab? Or the one for the program? If for the whole program, then my guess is you checked the option at some point to always close all tabs. You will have to go into the program settings and change it.

And just checking with IE, FF, Pale Moon, and Chrome on my "system", Chrome closes all tabs for me when I hit the Red X and I don't see in settings where that can be changed. PM and FF warn me that I have multiple tabs open and ask if I want to continue. Only EI asks if I want to close all or just the current.

It happens in Chrome ,the X I referred to is the closing down of this page X ,I have the option to close all or cancel .The operating system is Windows 10 .I didn't mention that, as I am on the Windows 10 forum.

So now we are talking about Chrome only? As I noted above, Chrome closes all for me too. I do not get the option to close only that tab (I have to click the X for that specific tab). In fact, I don't even get the option to cancel.
