    Each time I open a program, website, etc., an appropriate tab shows along the top of the screen. When I have finished with it, I always click the cross in the top right hand corner to close. But when I open, say, a different program, all these previous tabs are still there! Can anyone tell me how to make sure that when I close anything by clicking the X in the top corner, all the others will have automatically disappeared when I go back to open another website, etc. ? I don't want to click each separate one each time. I am using Chrome as my browser.

    If Continue where you left off is selected, change it to Open the New Tab page.
