Hi coletteck8,

Try this:
<body onunload="if (win&&!win.closed){win.close();}">

Something like this in your body tag:

<body onunload="if (win && !win.closed) { win.close(); }">

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Declare var win outside of the function.

<script language = "javascript">
var win;
function popup()
{
win = window.open("HelpFile/alert.htm", "Help", "width = 500, height = 300, top = 50, left = 450, scrollbars = no, resizable = no");
}
</script>
<body onunload = "if (win &&!win.closed){win.close();}">

No prob, cLFlaVa, I'm just experiencing an onrush of questions after two weeks of very difficult school lol

Hmm... It should work. Try this:

if (Help && !Help.closed) {Help.close();}

But before should work. Make sure that your popup opens before you close.
