If, like me, you frequently have a lot of tabs open in your Chrome browser, you’ll probably appreciate this tip. This really comes in handy if you’re watching a video or having a video chat. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes lose a tab and am not exactly sure how to get back to it.

Here’s a quick way to find your tabs. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right of Chrome browser. Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + A

You’ll see a list of open tabs and a search box that allows you to search for open tabs.

Type in the site you’re looking for or just scroll down.

Just click on the tab to go to it. Especially helpful is the Audio & Video heading. You can instantly see any tabs playing audio and video that are open. This can help you quickly get back to a live chat or find out where unknown sound is coming from.
