|Browser tabs tend to multiply, and finding your way back to a specific browser tab can be a challenge. But there's a better way.|
This tip gives you a way to quickly find any open tab in just a few keystrokes. It offers a nice bird's-eye view of all your open browser tabs, too.
This works onboth Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Windows Intelligence subscriber Dave N. shares an incredibly useful keyboard shortcut for cutting through the tab clutter:
In either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, press Ctrl+Shift+A. You'll see a pop-up menu with a list of all your open browser tabs and recently closed browser tabs. Type to search them, and press Enter to go to one.
You can even use this trick if you don't plan on searching: Pressing Ctrl+Shift+A will show you a nice list of all your open tabs across all your open browser windows, so you can see everything at a glance — and even close the tabs you don't need anymore, right from this menu.
In Google Chrome, you can also click that down arrow to the left of the minimize button at the top-right corner of the browser window to view this tab list.
(Unfortunately, this keyboard shortcut doesn't work in Mozilla Firefox, though you can click the down arrow to the left of the minimize button at the top-right corner of your Firefox window to view a list of all your open tabs.)
