Although Android has Chrome and iOS has Safari, Microsoft Edge is one of the best browsers you can use on your mobile. Even though it has so many features, some of them are hidden deep inside. For example, you cannot find the Close all tabs option, which lets you close all opened Edge tabs at once. That is why you should check out this tutorial to learn how you can find that option to close all the opened tabs at once when needed.
It is possible to enable or disable the Close all tabs prompt in Microsoft Edge for Windows 10. This option helps you close all the tabs at once, even though you can click the Close button to do the same. At times, you might need an option to close all opened tab on your Android or iOS mobile. Let’s assume that your research is complete and you want to close them all to move on to another research. If you clear the app from the Recent apps menu, those tabs may come back when you re-open the Edge browser. That is why you need to use the dedicated Close all tabs option.
As this option, Close all tabs, is already included in the Microsoft Edge browser for Android and iOS, you do not have to enable any experimental flag or anything else. However, it is recommended to update the browser to the latest version to get the option.

Tap and hold this icon until you get the next option. Whether you are using Android or iOS, you can find an option called Close all tabs.
Tap on this option and select Close, if you are using an iPhone or OK, if you are using an Android mobile.
