How can I check for additional tabs in Chrome, MS Edge


I use both MS Edge and Chrome as my web browsers and tend to keep many tabs open in both at the same time – so much so that a lot of the tabs cannot be seen from the main preview pane. Of the two, I can use the “task view” to see all the pages, but how can I see additional tabs on an open page?

A: As mentioned above, Chrome and Edge both have a “Task Manager” feature which essentially prepares a navigable list of all your open tabs for you in a separate browser tab.

In Chrome, this can be accessed by clicking on the three vertically stacked dots in the upper right corner, which opens the main command menu. In it, click on “More Tools” and then on “Task Manager” to produce a new tab containing a list of all the tabs you have open at that time. From there, you can simply click on the tab that interests you to navigate to it.

In Edge, you perform a set of similar steps to reach a similar looking page by clicking the three horizontally stacked dots in the upper right corner of the browser window. In the menu that appears, select “More tools”, then “Browser task manager”. This will produce a new tab listing all of your open tabs, and like with Chrome, just click on whatever page you want to go to it.

In Chrome, you can also navigate your most recent set of tabs by clicking on the “small down arrow in a circle” icon located in the upper right corner of the browser, next to the “X” of collapse and closing. When you do, a list of all your recently opened tabs will appear, which you can click if necessary.

There is also an extension for Chrome called “TabsOutliner” which you can install for free. (It is available at this URL: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tabs-outliner/eggkanocgddhmamlbiijnphhppkpkmkl?hl=fr)

Once added to the browser and launched, it creates a sort of left navigation bar in the browser window that can be used to switch between tabs and even organize tabs as needed.

As for Edge: because it’s a Microsoft product, the tabs you’ve opened in the browser can actually be added as individual items in the Windows Open Programs list, which means you can scroll through them using the hotkey Alt + Tab function.

To configure this, right click on the Windows Start button and select “Settings” from the menu that appears. In the next window that appears, click on “System,” then select “Multitasking” from the left navigation menu.

In that section, scroll down to the section called “Alt + Tab”, click on the drop-down menu and select the option “Open windows and all tabs in Edge”.

Close the “Settings” window and launch Edge. Once it’s open, press and hold Alt + Tab on your keyboard and it will bring up all of your open apps as well as all of your open tabs in Edge in one view.

To navigate through open tabs and windows, select the desired window using the mouse or hold down the Alt button and press Tab repeatedly to step through the windows sequentially.
