The following vbscript opens Facebook, Google and Yahoo:

CODE
set sh1=createObject("Wscript.shell")
sh1.run "https://mg.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=71v8fbgb56rdm#9160695791/"

set sh2=createObject("Wscript.shell")
sh2.run "https://www.facebook.com"

set sh3=createObject("Wscript.shell")
sh3.run "https://www.google.com/"


I want to know how to CLOSE them ?

I have another batch file to open multiple windows explorer sessions, and this is the script to close all sessions:

CODE
cmd /c "taskkill /f /im explorer.exe && start explorer"


what would be the corresponding code to close my open facebook, google and yahoo sessions ?

The only way I can think of right now is by using Windows API to get the Windows Title?

a shell command...

taskkill /IM chrome.exe /F
taskkill /IM iexplore.exe /F

my bad, somehow I didn't see the end of your post.

Aren't facebook google and yahoo all web sessions? they would close with the taskkill commands.

Holy [censored]. I think I've been calling this (see image) "Windows Explorer" all these years - what is it called ? wary.gif

Ooops - it is windows explorer *Phew* IE - Internet Explorer - I panicked, because I worked with a reports developer one time, and I was telling him how I wrote scripts to open several sessions of Windows Explorer (which he was doing manually, multiple times a day), and he didn't know what Window's Explorer was :-(

A lot of folks confuse "windows explorer" and "internet explorer". Many are just not used to look for files using a "file manager" (what "windows explorer" used to be called), but only open files through the application they are working with.

Windows explorer = explorer.exe = file management tool
Internet explorer = iexplore.exe = web browser.

GREAT answer! Thanks ! Yeah, in the future, I'm going to slip in "file manager" or "a file manager" when talking about Windows explorer - I personally think file manager is a better name, because that's more descriptive of what it is/does

Thanks ! cool.gif

p.s., as for closing all sessions, a person could press ALT+F4, but I wanted to close only the windows I opened, and do it in code.

I just hovered my mouse pointer over the task bar at the extreme bottom of my screen, and a label popped up: "File Explorer"
