How to Save Tab Groups on Chrome

Grouping tabs on Chrome is an efficient way to organize all your open tabs. But until recently, there wasn’t a way to save these tab groups. Thankfully, Chrome now offers a way to do so. Here’s how you can enable Tab Group saving and save time.  

How to save tab groups on Chrome

Note: The ability to save Tab Groups comes with a recent update. So make sure to update Chrome from Settings > About Chrome first. If the feature is not available right now, then it should be available soon as an update. 

Here’s how to save a tab group:

  1. Right-click on a tab and select Add tab to a new group. Then drag other tabs to the group. 
  2. Once you have a tab group created, simply right-click on the tab group icon and toggle on Save Group.
  3. You’ll see the same group icon appear in your bookmark bar. Whenever you need to re-open the group, simply click on this icon. 

Note: Removing a tab from a group will be reflected in your saved group as well. So if you want to preserve your group but want to close it temporarily, right-click on the group and select ‘Hide group’ instead.

  2. Search for ‘tab groups’ and then Enable the Tab Groups Save and Sync experiment.
  3. Relaunch Chrome to see the ‘Save Group’ option for your tab groups as given in the guide above in method 1.

Note: Once Chrome rolls out this feature to everyone, you won’t have to enable it via Chrome Flags anymore.
