Close popup window in JavaScript automatically after few seconds

here is the JavaScript function:

	<script type="text/javascript">
function new_popup(){
    var popupwin = window.open('http://www.google.com','anyname','width=10,height=1,left=5,top=3');
    setTimeout(function() { popupwin.close();}, 5000);
}
</script>

I have used 5000 milliseconds to close the popup window after 5 seconds automatically. You can modify it as per your requirement.

So the entire code is provided below:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Close popup window</title>
</head>
<body>
  <input type="submit" onclick="new_popup()">
  <script type="text/javascript">
function new_popup(){
    var popupwin = window.open('http://www.google.com','anyname','width=10,height=1,left=5,top=3');
    setTimeout(function() { popupwin.close();}, 5000);
}
</script>

</body>
</html>

Special Notes: The ‘anyname’ is used as a window name but the latest versions of browsers generally do not show the window name. Moreover, the rest of the parameters are for the position of the focus area of the popup window.
