Is there a way to close all locations lists and quick fix windows with a single command in vim/gvim?

share|improve this question
:windo if &buftype == "quickfix" || &buftype == "locationlist" | lclose | endif

That will execute the :lclose command in all windows not displaying quickfix or location lists. I didn't have a set of location lists to test it with, so I tested with a different buffer type and it worked for that case.

You will probably want to make it a command or shortcut in your .vimrc as well.

Reread the question, he's asking to close all of the quick fix windows, not close everything but them. – deterb Jun 6 '14 at 14:42

:ccl | lcl

Map it to <Leader>c:

noremap <Leader>c :ccl <bar> lcl<CR>

This will only close one location list: the one for the active window, if one exists. – ches Feb 6 '15 at 15:08

I map this to <F11>:

nmap <F11> :windo lcl\|ccl<CR>

Basically: In each window, run lcl (close location list) and ccl (close quickfix)
