I usually browse with multiple Opera windows, each with multiple tabs. On Windows, I can close a single Opera window and all its tabs with ALT - F4. Is there an equivalent keyboard shortcut for Opera on OS X?

I'm looking for something between command - w (which closes only a single Opera tab) and command - q (which closes all Opera windows). Clicking the red "close" orb gets the results I want, but I'm looking for a keyboard shortcut.


Command + Shift + W for OS X (or Ctrl + Shift + W for those using Windows/Linux) should do the trick.

But you can easily find out, just go to Preferences > Advanced > Shortcuts, select your keyboard setup, click Edit, and type "close" in the search field, this will show you all shortcuts that close something, so you should be able to work it out from those results.

  • Both [command]-[shift]-[w] and [Alt]-[F4] work on OS X~ Nice suggestion to check the preferences! I only thought of checking help.opera.com/Mac/11.60/en/keyboard.html – Leftium Jan 12 '12 at 4:20
  • That's the great thing about Opera - even if there wasn't an existing keyboard shortcut available, you could probably roll your own. Glad you got it to work :-) – Amos M. Carpenter Jan 12 '12 at 5:05

⌘ + Shift + W will close your current Opera window
