If multiple Google Chrome browser windows are open, it may be difficult to determine which of these windows to change to or switch to if you are moving from one task or activity to another.
For ease of switching among several windows, you can label your Google Chrome windows. If you are juggling multiple tasks at the same time and wish to separate different types of work into separate windows, this is a wonderful feature. Using this function, it is possible to group tabs that are related into a single window. After you have populated the tabs, you can simply hide or minimize them until you are ready to use them.

What Happens When You Name A Browser Window
Generally, when you name a Google Chrome browser window, it makes it easier for you to do the following:

Finding Google Chrome Windows on the Dock
When you give browser windows names, their names can be seen even if they are minimized.
Each time I hover over the Chrome icon in the quick access toolbar at the bottom of my Mac’s screen, I am able to see the names of the browser windows, as shown below. On the lower right-hand side, next to the trash icon, you will notice the window name BackgroundMusic displayed above the Google Chrome icon.
Alternatively, I can right-click the Chrome icon on the Dock, which will display all available browser window names. Untitled windows will be named “New Tab” or the title of the loaded website.
Moving Tab to Another Window
- Right-click the tab
- Select the Move tab to another window option
- Select the window into which you wish to move the tab
