    How do I close Internet Explorer after I have browsed a number of pages??
    Everytime I press 'back', it just takes me back to ALL the browsed pages.
    I have to reach the very first page to completely exit.

    I know I can press the windows button, but IE would still be in running in the background.

    Thanks!!

    Just hit ... close the tab and hit back. (Saves you cycling back through all the pages you've been to)

    Oh and welcome along to WPCentral BBBJJJ.

    I wouldn't worry about anything running in the background. :)
