Have you ever done hours of research on the web, created a collection of tabs with the info you need, and then had to repeat your work as you try to find them all a few days later? Wouldn’t it be great if you could name and save a collection of tabs in a Chrome browser? 

To save a named collection of tabs open in a Chrome browser, follow these steps,

  1. 1
    Arrange open tabs in the order you want. Close unwanted tabs.
  2. 2
    Press Ctrl+Shift+D (Apple+Shift+D) to open the Bookmark All Tabs dialog box.

  1. 3
    If you do not have a bookmark folder to hold tab collections, click the New Folder button and create a folder. Give the new folder a category name, like Client Research, because each collection of tabs you store in it will have its own unique name, like ABC Corp New Product.
  2. 4
    Select the folder to hold your tab collection.
  3. 5
    In the Name text box, enter a name for your tab collection. You may want to include a date to make management easier, for example, ABC Corp New Product 20190615.
  4. 6
    Click Save to save all the open tabs into the folder you selected.

To open your collection of saved tabs,

  1. 1
    Click the folder on the Bookmark bar that holds your collection.
