Closing all opened tabs except the first main tab using web-driver

How to close all opened tabs except the first main tab using web driver?

I used the below code, but it closes all tabs including the first tab:

public static void closeTabs() {
    String wh1=driver.getWindowHandle();
    String cwh=null;
    while(wh1!=cwh)
    {   
    new Actions(driver).sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL).sendKeys(Keys.NUMPAD1).perform();
    driver.findElement(By.tagName("body")).sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL, Keys.TAB);
    cwh=driver.getWindowHandle();
    driver.findElement(By.tagName("body")).sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL+"w");
    }
}

Get all the window handles then iterate through them, switching web driver to the new handle, then calling the close method. Obviously, skip this for the original handle, then switch back to the remaining handle.

below is the code;

    String originalHandle = driver.getWindowHandle();
    //Do something to open new tabs
    for(String handle : driver.getWindowHandles()) {
        if (!handle.equals(originalHandle)) {
            driver.switchTo().window(handle);
            driver.close();
        }
    }

    driver.switchTo().window(originalHandle);
