This Google Chrome Trick Organizes All Those Open Tabs

Jason Pepper/CNET

If you’re looking for a way to clean up your many open browser tabs, Google has a useful grouping feature in its chrome toolset. The feature, called Tab Groups, lets you group open websites with a single click and label them with a custom name and color. You can even move and rearrange the groups as you please.

Google introduced the feature in 2020, but a similar feature has been around for years in other browsers like Vivaldi and Operaand through browser extensions such as OneTab.

Tab groups will be particularly useful when working on several different projects at the same time, tracking the progress of tasks, or browsing multiple shopping and review sites.

Use Chrome’s Tab Groups to organize all of your open websites in the browser.

Customize your tab group however you like, using words or emoji for the tab group name. The best part might be that groups are saved when you close and reopen Chrome, removing the step of digging through your browser history to find the website you’re looking for.

The Tab Groups feature is available for Chrome Browser on desktop computers that run Chrome OS, Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Here’s how to create group tabs in Chrome:

1. When you have a tab open, right-click on it and click Add a tab to the new group.

2. Select the name and color of your tab group.

3. When you open new tabs, right-click on it, then click Add to group, then select the group you want to add them to. The tabs in this group will be underlined with the color you chose.

4. After that, move them into each group as desired.

Chrome is the world’s most popular browserand tab functionality had been on test several months before its release.
