5 Hidden Chrome Features

Google Chrome is one of the most widely used browsers today. It's simple to use and comes with a variety of add-on extensions. What you don't realize is that Chrome hides a slew of game-changing features. We've listed 5 functions that will dramatically transform your browsing experience below.

Keep tabs on your tabs in Google Chrome

Ease Tab Hoarding Can Help You Organize Your Tabs... It's something we're all guilty of. Google's most recent update allows you to bring some order to the chaos. You can group your tabs together with a single right click. This capability adheres to the three C's: Categorize, Color Coordinate, and Collapse.

Categorize: Categorize by right-clicking a tab, selecting Add tab to a new group, then labeling the tab group.

Color Coordinate: You can choose the color of the group when you create it. This is a quick visual indication for distinguishing across categories. Drag tabs into your new group by clicking and dragging. When a tab becomes a member of a group, its outline changes to the color of the group.

Collapse: Once you've organized your tabs, you may expand and collapse them by clicking the group's circle on the left.

Specify Where You Save Your Downloads

It's all too simple to let your downloads folder fill up. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack when it comes to critical paperwork. Not to mention the fact that any file in this folder is at risk of being erased by mistake. Avoid getting a headache. Every time you download with Chrome, you may decide where you want your files to be saved.

All you need to do is: Go to Settings > Advanced > Downloads and select Ask where to save each file before downloading. 

Tabs that were recently closed should be reopened

Have you ever closed a crucial tab by accident? It occurs to the most well-intentioned of us. Chrome makes it simple to resurrect recently closed web sites without having to trawl through your browser history. Reopen closed tabs by right-clicking the top navigation bar. For a PC, use the shortcut "CTRL + Shift + T," while for a Mac, use "+ Shift + t."

Roll A Dice

Have you forgotten about your dice in the other pocket of your pants? In your search bar, type "Roll a Dice." You'll be transported to an app where you may customize and play with a digital dice. This feature isn't only available in Chrome; it's also available through Google.

Aside from these secret features, there are also plenty of more interesting hidden chrome features listed here.

  • Metronome
  • Color picker

Create Multiple User Profiles 

Do you have a work gmail and a personal gmail? Chrome allows you to create different User profiles for your browser based on your gmail accounts. This gives you the opportunity to personalize multiple Chrome browsers. This includes, but isn’t limited to: 

  • Chrome settings
  • Saved Passwords
  • Bookmarks

The added benefit is that you can sync your settings to this user profile, so your saved settings can be available on any device that you log into.

To add a profile, go to the top right of your chrome browser and click your google avatar icon. Go to the bottom of the dropdown menu and select Add. A pop up will guide you through adding your profile, which will include logging into the desired Gmail account.
