I’m working on a project or editing my photos in Photoshop or
Photoshop Elements, I often have a number of images open at once.
I am ready to move onto a new project, there are several ways for me
to close the files. There’s not a right way or a wrong way to do
this – like most things Photoshop, it’s a matter of personal
choice and what seems most comfortable for your working style.
way to close the files is to click the X
at the top right corner of each open document one by one. This can
be time consuming if you have a large set of photos open.
way to close all of the open files is to close
of Photoshop and reopen. Depending on the speed of your computer and
the number of personal settings, this can take more time than you are
willing to devote to the task.
faster way to close all of the files is to select File
> Close All
or use the keyboard shortcut: Alt
+ Ctrl + W
+ Cmd + W).
final method is to hold the Shift
as you click on the X
at the top right corner of the open file on top of the stack. This
quickly closes all of the open files in sequence.
