Pro tip: How to Search your tabs

You might have heard me mention...

.. that the ability to search-your-tabs is a key productivity Chrome extension.  I've used a number of Chrome extensions over the years to get this capability.  But here's a Pro Tip for power SearchResearchers.  



Look for the icon in the upper right of your Chrome window The circle with the downward-pointing triangle: 

(If you don't see this, check out the note at the bottom.  It will improve your life.) 

When you click on that icon, you'll see a list of all your open tabs. It's scrollable, if you can't remember the tab title. BUT...   You can then type in something to find the tab you need.  


Use the keyboard shortcut.  (You saw that, right?)  

Search on.... in your tabs!! 

AND... if you don't see the icon in the upper right corner of your browser, do this: 

1. In the Chrome URL bar, type (or click on this link):  


2. Click enter.

3. You'll be taken to the Chrome Browser's Experimental Features menu and a highlighted box that says "Enable Tab Search."

4. Enable it. 

5. Relaunch your browser.
