    Like close every window you see with one button? Without restarting/shutting down the computer.

    You can close every window inside an App by pressing option while you click the close button or by pressing the keyboard command Command-Option-W

    Does not close all the windows system wide but a nice tip.

    I would just press cmd + tab and keep holding cmd and then press Q a bunch of times to quit all of the applications running. :)

    Well, Finder is an application also. So, technically, the answer to your question is yes.* But, I assume you mean all applications except Finder. The answer to that is no. I'm afraid you have to quit them one at a time.
