Closing sevral windows at one time?

If I have 20 Minimized windows, on the task bar, is there a procedure to close all of them at once, without closing each individual one seperatly.
Thank you.

are they all the same application? eg.. multiple copies of windows explorer or internet explorer...if they are....then maximise one of the child windows (usually one of the windows on the right, the parent windows is usually the one on the left) and hold down Shift key and click on the "x" button (close)...this should close the application and all the instances...
make one active and press shift alt f4
at the same time.

Hope this helps

kind4me, shift alt f4 = ALT-F4 it only close one active window at a time that I've tested. Not all at the same time!

I Tried shift+alt+f4, and the first metod , but they closed one window at a time.  I d/l the software recommended by compmania for win 95 not win 98, my system LOCKED UP, and got application error.
Iam using win 98.  So  I went to add /remove, and uninstall it.
Here are most of the keyboard shortcuts (maybe all) I know one will close all windows by holding it and clicking on the x of one window, will try it.
