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?

If you stay logged on, then I think you must close individually (or in the groups as you suggest). Is this for you?  Consider logging off and logging back on (not switch user). Logging off will close everything.

I prefer to close myself as I can see if anything goes awry. It does not take much longer.
