  • If you can't activate ctrl+W you can try creating the tab through your own JS. This will allow you to then close it (JS only allows you to close the tabs you make programmatically).

Try adding javascript function to create a tab or window.open() or anything that will programmatically open a new tab when user click on the button / link that refer to your form / page.

Then on that form / page, after user click submit button, you should be able to close the page using window.close() (since javascript only allows you to close a tab / window that you open programmatically).
