If Windows XP while holding down the Ctrl key, click each folder along the task bar, then right click and select Close Group.

Windows7, right click the Folder stack in the task bar and select Close all windows

Usually we have multiple Folder Stacks in the task bar, I will have to righ-click a folder to close all it's windows.  Then, I would right-click another folder stack to close all it's window and so on.  

Is there an efficient way to close all folder stacks?

When I said folder stack I was specifically referring to Windows 7.
Is you OS XP or Windows7?
