How to Save Your Tab Groups in Chrome

If you are like most people, you probably have dozens of tabs open in your Chrome browser at any given time. You might use them for work, research, entertainment, or just browsing the web. But having too many tabs can clutter your screen, slow down your browser, and make it hard to find what you need.

That’s why Chrome has a handy feature called tab groups. Tab groups let you organize your tabs into different categories, such as projects, topics, or tasks. You can name your groups, color-code them, and collapse them to save space. Tab groups make it easier to manage your tabs and switch between them.

But what if you want to save your tab groups for later? Maybe you want to close your browser and resume your work on another device. Or maybe you want to hide your tab groups temporarily and focus on something else. How can you do that without losing your tabs?

Fortunately, Chrome has a solution for that too. You can save and sync your tab groups across desktop devices when you need them. This makes it easier to clean up your tab strip and focus on the thing you need to get done, right now.

Before you can save your tab groups, you need to create them first. Here are the steps to do that:

  1. Open Chrome and go to the website you want to add to a group.
  2. Right-click the tab and select Add tab to group.
  3. Choose an existing group or create a new one. You can name your group and pick a color for it.
  4. Repeat the process for other tabs you want to group together.
  5. To save your group, turn on Save group. Your group will appear in the bookmarks bar with a folder icon.
  6. To remove the group from your tab strip but keep it for later, right-click the group header and select Hide.
