I have multiple users in Chrome open. Each has multiple windows.

To restore a user not currently open, I can just go to users -> [user x] and it restores properly.

However, how can I quit Chrome just for that one user (e.g. to save RAM/CPU when I'm done working in that context for the moment, but want to continue working as other open users)?

  • How are you quitting? Does it not work just to use the close (x) at the top right? or does that close all users?

  • That would close one window for that user. If I did that for all of that user's windows, when I reopen it, it'll think its last state was only the last-closed window, which'd lose multiple windows per user state that I want to preserve. File -> quit closes all users.

  • I really don't understand. I only use 1 user, not multiple users. From your question it seems you want to close all of one user's windows and clicking on the x at the top right closes all of the tabs for that user. Your response seems to say that you are closing each tab separately. Please elucidate.

  • I'd suggest just trying it. Add a new user. Each user has their own windows.

Apparently this feature was implemented. Click on the profile name in the right top corner and click Close all your windows. Google Chrome version 59. Sweet!


Currently (June 2014) there's no way to do this, but it's been requested, and you can star the feature request if you want to add your support for it: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=130656
