HTML Close Window Code

You can use the following HTML code to close a window within your website. This can be handy on popup windows. To be precise, this is actually JavaScript code combined with HTML code.

Close Current Window

The following code closes the current window.

Code

To see this code in action, check out the "close" link on this popup page:


(then close it using its "Close" link in the top right corner)

Close Another Window

You can also close another window. That is, a different window to the one that the "Close" button is located on.

The following JavaScript code includes a function to open the window, and another function to close the window that was just opened. To close the window, we use the window's name (the name that we gave it when we opened the window). In this case, we called our window popupWindow.

CodeResult

Note that you may need to click "Close Popup Window" twice - the first click will bring this window back into focus and the second click will click the actual button.
