you trigger the shortcut and it executes the AppleScript and closes all Finder windows - there is no more details to give.

There are two advantages to this neat little shortcut:
1) you can close the Finder's windows from within whatever app you are running;
2) the trigger can be changed.

A nice addition to the native opt-cmd-W to do the same thing if the Finder is front-most.

As a variant, at the end I have added a further step [Switch to Previous Application] so that when the shortcut stops, the app that was front-most when the shortcut was triggered is front-most again (and not the Finder).

Thanks!
