I accidentally opened a huge file in the editor and it won't close, and when I restart Matlab the editor reopens the huge file. Is there a way to close the editor from the Matlab prompt? If it matters, I have several mfiles open in different tabs of the editor, but fine to close them all.

you can call com.mathworks.mlservices.MLEditorServices.closeAll
you can read up all about this on the http://undocumentedmatlab.com/blog/accessing-the-matlab-editor page
incase the editor ties you up so you still cannot access the command window then try creating a start up file http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/startup.html or move the large file from where it is so matlab "errors" when trying to load the file
