    Hello all,

    I just bought the new macbook pro 13 inch and i am pretty good at using the shortcuts for pretty much everything. However, i do have one question. Lets say i have multiple windows open in safari and i want to close just one of them.. is there an easy shortcut method to accomplish this?? I dont want to close them all (I know that shortcut:), just the current one)

    Thanks mac users!:apple:

    Hold down the 'command' key and then press 'w'.

    no probs, new ones for me in safari are

    fn+ up / down - scroll up and down a page at a time
    fn+ left /right - scroll to top / scroll to bottom of page

    found them out last night by accident

    Or in firefox if you want to scroll to the top/bottom of a page, just three finger swipe up or down.

    Command + W closes a tab (and window if there are no tabs left)
    Command + Shift + W closes a window along with all tabs inside.
