Google has created a function to help us manage our tab, Tab Groups. This function allows us to quickly organize our tabs into different groups to locate the tabs needed for other projects. It separates the different tabs by color-coding the tabs at the top of your Chrome browser. Hence, if you cannot read the headings while running multiple tabs, you can identify each tab by color.

This feature is not immediately made available to all users. Thus, this article will cover how to enable Tab Groups in Google Chrome.


Part 1: Enabling' Tab Groups'

Before you start, make sure to close and save all the tabs that you have open. This is because you will need to relaunch the browser once you have enabled the function for it to be implemented.

  1. On your PC device, launch the Google Chrome Browser.
  2. Locate the search bar right at the top of the window, where you usually see the web address. Click on the search bar.
  3. Type in 'chrome://flags.' A warning page will inform you that this is still an experimental feature.
  4. You will see a long list of features that are still under experimentation. You can find Tab Groups by manually scrolling through the whole list. Alternatively, you can type '#tab-groups' in the search bar.
  5. Once you have found the Tab Groups settings, look at the button on the right of the description. Click on it to reveal the drop-down menu.
  6. To enable Tab Groups, select Enabled.
  7. Select the blue Relaunch button at the bottom of your screen once you have completed the previous step. Once your Chrome browser reloads, the feature will be implemented within your browser.
  8. You can check to ensure the function has been enabled by typing "chrome://flags" into the search bar. You will see Tab Groups at the top of the list; beside it, the drop-down menu has been changed to enabled.

Part 2: Using the "Tab Groups" function

Knowing how to enable Tab Groups is the first step; now we need to know how to implement and use it while browsing the web.

  1. Right-click on the tab at the top of your window to create a Tab Group.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select "Add tab to new group." It will automatically be given a color.
  3. To customize your Tab Group, click on the colored circle beside your tab to change the color or name the tab group.
  4. If you want to open a new tab under the same group, click on the colored circle and select "New tab in-group." Alternatively, you may open a new tab and search for the subject of interest. Then, right-click on the tab and select "Add to existing group" from the drop-down menu. Choose the name of the group under which you would like to include the tab.
  5. To create a new tab group, perform a search within a new tab on Google Chrome. Then, follow steps 1 to 3 to create and customize the new Tab Group.
  6. If you want to remove a Tab Group and revert all tabs to normal, click on the colored circle on the left of the tab. Select Ungroup. This will remove the colored border of your Tab Group. Alternatively, if you wish to close all the tabs under a group, you may select the option: Close group.
