Because of a combination of factors (Steven explained this in another thread) it's now often quite cumbersome to close multiple tabs in a row (e.g. by repeatedly pressing the hotkey Ctrl+W). Because the focus often shifts to a pinned tab (and you first have to manually focus the next tab you want to close, etc.).

So: wouldn't it be handy and awesome to have a simple command "close all unpinned tabs"? Yes, it would :-)

Just FYI, middle mouse click closes an unpinned tab regardless of focus.

Thanks Redwing but:

- I don't have a middle mouse button (I have a logitech mouse with a "freewheel": pressing that toggles freewheel mode, so no middle button for me..)
- I wrote an Autohotkey script which closed all unlocked tabs but because of some changes in MB that doesn't work anymore.

HOWEVER: your tip gives me the idea to change my script! I'll let you know if it works ;-)

EDIT: Yeah, thanks again because I changed my script and it works: it now waits for me to click on the first unlocked Tab and then it closes all the unlocked tabs by sending a bunch of Middle mouse buttons :-)

BTW: I meant "unlocked" tabs instead of "unpinned".
