How to close an existing IE window

I need to launch a new IE using an action and with another action I need to close that IE window that I created. Sounds simple but not for a rookie like me
Am able to open an IE

But how to close it from another action?  

RE: How to close an existing IE window

Hi ! Try This simple code !


Dim IE
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Visible = 1
IE.navigate "http://www.google.com"
Do While (IE.Busy)
    WScript.Sleep 200
MsgBox "This Page will close in 10s",64,"Information"
wscript.sleep 10000 'Waiting for 10s
MsgBox "This Page will close Now after clicking on the OK Button !",64,"Information"
set IE = Nothing
