    not sure why this is so hard to find out.
    cmd w will take you to force quit that seems sort of drastic to me.. I think an automator can be set up to do this. but that seems cumbersome for such a simple task if you can open them with cmd n ...? thank you

    Unless I'm missing something, the answer is in Safari's File menu:

    Close All Windows - Option-Shift-Command-W

    The apparent obviousness of the answer may be why you hadn't received a reply until now.

    Also command-Q will quit Safari which in essence closes all Windows.

    Depends. Ever since Lion, there's a checkbox in System Preferences ("Close windows when quitting an application" in Mavericks) that must be checked for this to happen. Otherwise, Safari will merrily reopen all of those windows the next time it's launched..
