I don’t know why left alt is not working for you but you could try using backspace.

In relation to closing individual tabs the command for  this is control F4 rather than alt F4 which closes the entire program.

I don’t use webmail so cannot help with your Gmail issue.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your revert.

Sieghard that gesture worked.

Now, could someone pls help me  withthe following two additional issues.

1. Getting rid of the requirement to select Basic HTMl view each time

I login to Gmail via chrome.

2. going back in web pages. The Alt + left arrow doesn't work. Also,

unlike IE where on pressing Alt + F4, one is given an option whether

to only close one tab or all tabs, chrome just shuts down everything.
