# What to use the Close browser tab step for
This step closes a tab, this is useful when new pages are opened during bot runs and you wish to return to the previous tab. It is important to note that the bot can only function in one tab at a time and lacks the ability to switch tabs on its own. If the bot is active in the wrong tab, you might encounter an error, such as 'click not found,' and no interaction will occur in the targeted tab. To automate tasks across multiple tabs, you can combine this step with the Switch tab step.
You can use this step to:
- Close new tabs that open in pop up windows
- Return to previous tab
# How to configure the Close browser tab step
# Select Tab
Set the position of the tab to switch to. 1 chooses the tab on the farthest left, 2 the second left etc.
