Chrome will allow you to reopen accidentally closed tab groups

Exactly one year after releasing the "Tab Groups" feature to everyone, Chrome is preparing to evolve it to make it even more powerful: no problem if you accidentally close a tab group.

Reopening accidentally closed tab groups on Chrome will soon be possible. After being identified within the code of the latest release of the developer version, the new feature may soon be made available for use by all users, making life easier for all those who use the Google browser daily.

To identify the feature within the code of Chrome Canary, the version of the browser dedicated to developers, was a Reddit user, u/Leopeva64. This is a particularly interesting news for all those users who use the feature every day, since, currently, Chrome does not allow you to reopen groups of tabs in a single click, as already happens with single tabs. In fact, as a result of an accidental closure, the user is forced to reopen each page individually and "rebuild" each group, inserting each of the tabs that previously composed it.

Reopening tab groups on Chrome, how it will work

With the new implementation, the Big G browser will allow you to reopen the entire group in bulk that, within the history, will be displayed as a single element. This is evident in the first screenshots released on the network, which indicate that to reopen the group is sufficient, in addition to the canonical click on the item, pressing the key combination Ctrl Shift T.

Once reopened, the group will propose again to the user all the same features previously set. Specifically, in addition to the screens ordered as at the beginning, the group will reappear in the top bar with the name and identification color specified at the time of creation.

Tab groups on Chrome, when the new feature

Introduced last year, tab groups have made it possible to group numerous tabs according to criteria set by the user. This not only allows you to keep an eye on related pages at all times, thanks to a quick and effective cataloging method, but also to be able to count on a clean and visually tidier browser.

As anticipated, currently the feature is already available on Google Chrome Canary for desktop and, to be used, does not require any special enablement or flags to be activated in the settings. Big G has not yet provided a specific date for the final introduction, but if the tests were to give positive results, it is not excluded that the feature may soon peep into the stable release of the browser.
