In the same window where you entered "startup.bat" to start Tomcat, 
enter "shutdown.bat" to terminate the Tomcat running in the other window.

Alternatively, entering CTRL-C in the command window where Tomcat itself 
  is running, also shuts down that Tomcat cleanly.
Simply closing the window where Tomcat is running, may not do a clean 

Yet another way to shut down Tomcat :
- have a look at the file (tomcat_install_dir)/conf/server.xml
- there is a tag in it like this :
<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">

It means that if you open a TCP connection to localhost, port 8005, and 
send the string "SHUTDOWN" on that connection, Tomcat will shut down.
You can change the port and the string to what you prefer, like
<Server port="8999" shutdown="stopnow">

As a security, Tomcat will only accept a connection on that shutdown 
port, if it originates from localhost (the same machine).
