Request for Close all button in SPE Config:Center

The recent hyperlinking to the Next envelope name is very useful in Config Center. However, for validating one transaction set (Ex: X12 850: ST-GS-ISA 3 envelopes). I end up opening 6 windows as shown in the attached image and 6 times I need to click on the close option to get back to the Envelpe search screen to continue my next set validation. Which is time-consuming. If we can have a close all option it would be really helpful not only for envelopes but for all configurations. Close all option should just need to take us back to the search screen
