How to Close a Browser Window Opened by Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer is a free web browser made by Microsoft. You can use it to visit your favorite websites and surf the Internet by following links to different sites. Sometimes websites that are supported by advertising will open a new browser window without you doing anything. These “pop-up” windows are designed by the advertisers to make you look at their ads, even if only for a fraction of second before you close them. You can easily close a browser window opened by Internet Explorer.
