To close the browser window using webdriver object in Selenium, call close() function on the webdriver object.



1. Close Chrome browser window

In the following program, we initialize a webdriver, navigate to Python Examples home page, and then close the window using close() method.

Python Program

from selenium import webdriver
from import Service as ChromeService
from import ChromeDriverManager

# Setup chrome driver
driver = webdriver.Chrome(service=ChromeService(ChromeDriverManager().install()))

# Open a website

# Close the browser window

When you run this program, a browser window is created, and upon the execution of close() method, the browser window would be closed.

Whatever the browser you would like to test on, the process is same. Just call the close() method on that webdriver object.
