    I don't know much about tablets, but it appears that some Achros tablets come with the Jellybean operating system. If that's your case, I would think that what was discussed above should work the same way on the tablet as it does on a Vivid phone.

    while those screen caps look helpful they actually look nothing like my browser which may be the problem for a lot of people reading it. Yours had the word windows under the windows icon and it's on the left side, mine just has the icon and it's on the right side and invisible until you click the top of the screen. So the key is to find the "windows" icon which looks more like the top of 3 overlapping file folders, click on that and then the windows with "X"'s are visible so you can close them

    Sounds like you have an AOSP phone. Kurt and I showed and discussed the HTC Vivid.

    1. Open a web page.

    2. Push the "Settings" button at the bottom of the phone.
    (A pop-up window opens.)

    3. Tap " WINDOWS".

    4. The web page will now shrink and an "X" will
    appear at the top right of the page.

    5. Sliding your finger left or right across the screen
    will now show the 6 web pages (tabs) you have open.



    6. "X" (close) the pages you want to eliminate.

    7. Tapping a page will return it to its regular size.

    I dont understand about the tab limit
    What don't you understand? Why there is a limit? The software developers had to set some limit on the number of tabbed windows that could be open...they chose a total of 6 windows. How to delete tabs? That has been discussed several times in previous posts.

    The reason that tabbed windows shows up is controlled by the website developer. In some cases, when you click on a link, the next webpage is downloaded and it replaces the one in your current tabbed window...you still only have one tabbed window. On other websites, clicking on a link forces another tabbed window to open...this will happen on your phone or even if you are on a full computer using the browser. To close this new tabbed window, you must go up and click on the "X" on the tab. Thus, the same thing on the phone...you must find the other tabbed windows and tap the "X" to close it.

    I've found that when on the phone with these tabbed windows, using the back arrow (one of the four buttons along the bottom of the phone front face) will automatically close the tabbed window I was looking at. Don't use the back arrow on the website...try the back arrow on the phone.

    Is there any way to clear the open tabs without using the soft keys at the bottom of the device? I have an HTC Rezound, and my soft keys stopped working. I downloaded the Smart Taskbar 2.0, and I can get around on my phone again. Except when I'm in the web browser, I don't see the taskbar. And right now, for instance, we have several inches of snow falling, I want to open a traffic camera page to see what the road conditions look like, and I'm getting the "Tab Limit Reached. Can't Open A New Tab Until You Close One" error. Is there any way to close these tabs without the usual method / ways that have already been mentioned previously in this thread? Thanks in advance.

    I just tried to do that on my Vivid. I cannot find anyway to close the tabs without the soft keys. What about turning the phone completely off and back on? Surely, the phone won't remember all the tabs being open. What about removing the battery for 10-15 seconds?

    Some websites open links in new tabs, while others don't...this is based upon the programmer's decision (I think). I just noticed that on the site which typically opens in a new tab for me, if I long press on the link, I get options to either Open or Open in a New Tab. This then allows me to defeat the website's instructions to open in a new tab, but just go to the new URL. I can then navigate back to the original page using the back arrow at the top left of the browser. This might be something to do in the future if you don't have soft keys to work with.

    Tabs and bookmarks are different things in my book. Bookmarks are your favorites...one click takes you to that particular website. If you decide to go to another bookmark, the first website is replaced with the new one...no tabs are created. Tabs or additional websites are created when you are viewing one website and you click on a link within that website. Due to the software coding of that website, your browser opens up another tabbed window. Sometimes the coding on the website just replaces the current website with the new one.

    I'm sure you have seen this type of thing on the internet when using a desktop or laptop computer. If using something like Internet Explorer, additional tabs will be opened up across the top of the screen. It simply a matter of clicking on the "x" to close that tab. That's the same thing on the Vivid.
