I was up to no good on mIRC earlier today and found my screen full of message and fserv tabs/windows. While it certainly is fun clicking away at each window and closing it manually, that would only be if I had some sick fascination with RSI. A little digging unearthed a few commands that helped alleviate the process:
- Simply typing
/closemsgwill close all message windows.
- To close just a specific message window, type
/closemsg [title]where [title] represents the title of the window (usually just an IRC nick).
- If it's not just message windows, but also DCC windows that need to be closed, it's best to use the
/closecommand as per the following syntax:
/close [-icfgms@] [nick1] ... [nickN]
Closes all windows of a certain type and nick. If no nick is specified, all windows of the that type will close. Window types are as follows:
-c for chat
-f for fserve
-g for get
-i for inactive dcc windows
-m for message (query)
-s for send
-@ for custom windows.
- The asterisk wildcard can also be used to represent all. For example, typing
/close -cf *will close all message and DCC chat windows.
Hope this helps :)
