How to save all open tabs in a Chrome window

We recommend using Workona to save all of your open tabs in a Chrome window. After adding the extension, give the set of tabs a name. This turns your set of tabs into a workspace, which means tabs are instantly saved. They'll also be autosaved going forward, so you never have to worry about losing them. You can close the window and pick up where you left off the next time you open it.

Think of workspaces as saved browser windows. They're great for getting a project off your plate for a while. And when you're ready to work on it again, your tabs will be just as you left them.


How to save Chrome browsing sessions for later

Workona can help you save a browsing session in Chrome. Once you add the extension, all you have to do is give your browser window (aka workspace) a name. This saves all the tabs in the workspace, so you can safely shut the window and move on to other projects.

Repeat this process to save as many browsing sessions as you like.


How to save tabs when closing Chrome

Another way to save or restore your Chrome browsing sessions is by adjusting your settings to save tabs when closing Chrome:

  1. Open the Chrome menu (click the 3-dot menu in the upper-right corner of Chrome)
  2. Click Settings
  3. Scroll to the On Startup section at the bottom of the page
  4. Click to enable the setting Continue where you left off

Now when you close and restart Chrome, the windows and tabs that were previously open will automatically reopen. This setting plays nicely with Workona — the workspaces you had open in your last browsing session will also reopen.
