In Chrome we can close all the tabs in a window while keeping a selected one open.
Is there a keyboard shortcut to "close other tabs"?
No keyboard shortcut i know about and checking google forums neither does anyone else.
There is an extension Close Inactive Tabs this is a button which closes all other tabs except the active one
No more confusing menus
The shortcut key to close all other tabs is CtrlShiftAltW if you install Amazing Tab Shortcuts, freely available in the Chrome Web Store.
I use it frequently for scripts, which I suspect is your use.
None of them work. The easiest way is to right-click on the tab that you want to keep open and then click 'close other tabs'. The shortcut to close ALL tabs is Ctrl+Shift+W, to open a new tab is Ctrl+T, and to close the tab you are on is Ctrl+W. Also, if you close a tab by mistake and want to reopen it to the same page it was on, use Ctrl+Shift+T. Experiment with the rest like, Ctrl+Shift+E, etc.
Works great on my Mac with Chrome stable channel.
I wrote this extension so that we can assign shortcuts for closing tabs to the right / left /other tabs /pin /unpin tab. Let me know if you can use it
In OS X you can create
~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Google Chrome/ and save this script there with Script Editor:
tell window 1 of app "google chrome" to close tabs whose id is not (get id of active tab)
Then use FastScripts to give the script a shortcut.
