If you’re an iPad user, chances are you’ve used the Safari browser to access the web. While Safari is a great way to surf the internet, it can be difficult to figure out how to close your open windows. Fortunately, there are a few easy steps you can follow to make sure all of your windows are closed properly.

The first thing you need to do is open the Safari window. To do this, simply tap on the Safari app icon located on your iPad’s home screen. Once the window has opened, look for the tabs at the top of the browser and tap on one of them. This will open a new window within Safari that contains your desired website or other content.

Next, if you want to close that window simply tap and hold the ‘X’ icon located at the top left corner of your screen. This will bring up a prompt asking if you would like to close that particular window. Tap ‘OK’ and that tab will be removed from view.

You can also use this technique if you have multiple windows open within Safari and want to close all of them simultaneously. To do this, simply press and hold down on ‘Done’ option located in the lower right corner of your screen. After a few seconds, a prompt will appear asking if you would like to close all of your open windows within Safari – select ‘OK’ and they will all be removed from view in an instant!

By following these simple steps you can quickly and easily close any tab or window within Safari on your iPad with no hassle at all!

Removing Windows from the Bottom of Safari on an iPad

To get rid of the windows at the bottom of Safari on your iPad, you can either open up the Safari browser window and then tap the “Tabs” icon in the top right corner. Once you tap that, a list of all open tabs will appear. From there, you can tap “Close All Tabs” to close them all at once or individually swipe left on each tab to close them one by one.
Alternatively, you can single tap on the Tabs icon to bring up the browser window view, and then long press on “Done” to bring up a “Close All Tabs” interface. Safari will let you know how many tabs are currently open, and it will close each and every one after tapping Close All Tabs.

Tap the thumbnail of the page you want to delete, then tap Delete. To select multiple pages, touch and hold one page as you tap other pages with a second finger, then lift your fingers. When you are finished, all open pages will be cleared from your iPad.
