    Hi jdana,

    There isn't a shortcut key to do this, but instead you set in the Preferences.

    Edit | Preferences | Code Hints

    and you will see the options for Close Tags.  Basically, you can set it to never close a tag, close a tag after completing the opening tag, or close the tag after typing </

    Makes sense.  Thanks.
