    You can try inserting the below HTML in your form's code:

    <input type="button" value="Close this window" onclick="self.close()">

    If that doesn't work, please try with this JavaScript code:


    Step One: Insert the following lines of code into the head of your HTML page.

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> 

    function windowClose() { 





    Step Two: Insert the following line of code into the body of your HTML page.

    <input type="button" value="Close this window" onclick="windowClose();">

    You will have to copy that code in code of your website.
