1) By that interpretation, "Close All" should mean: Editors, Project, 
any other open window: packages, OI, debugger, doc-edit, main-ide-bar. 
And by means of the last, it should therefore close (exit) the IDE.

2) "All" is a 3 letter German word, and means "space" (as in outer space 
/ universe)
2b) According to https://www.dictionary.com/browse/all  even in English 
"All" (usually/often if capitalized) can also mean the universe.
   It can also be an adverb meaning each or completly (But not in the 
context given the menu)
   So much about "very clean meaning" ;) scnr


3) I would not mind, if it was clarified by changing the caption. I do 
even think that would be a good idea.
