Is there a way to bookmark all tabs in Chrome for Android? (i.e. right click and Ctrl functions are not available)

If it helps, I'm using Android tablet.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • This is not a direct answer, is an idea. I mean, just like Chrome reads a file with all open tabs list, for syncing or so, it must be possible to make a script or a little program, like a micro app, that reads and copies those URLs. – Cervantes Jun 19 '18 at 5:19

I came across this question while looking for a way to do this as well, and it appears that Chrome for Android does not currently have this option.

The following proved useful to me as a workaround:

  • Open Chrome on your desktop (logged into the same account as on your tablet).
  • In a new window, either hit (Ctrl + H) or go to 'Settings > History & recent tabs > History'.
  • From there, it should show your History/Tabs sorted by device.
  • Next to the name of your tablet, there should be a small box with a arrow pointing down. Clicking on this will give you the options to either 'Collapse List' or 'Open All'.
  • Select 'Open All', and all of your tabs from your tablet should open.
  • Now you can either hit (Ctrl+Shift+D), or right-click on one of the tabs and select 'Bookmark all tabs...'.
  • Select a folder for your bookmarks, and you should be set.

Granted, a bit more leg-work than simply hitting a button, but it is the only real option I've found for when you have 100+ tabs on your tablet that need bookmarking.

    This sync to desktop is not very reliable actually. I have around 100 tabs open on Chrome in Android, and on the desktop it's only showing me around half of them. Now that I bookmarked these, it's not showing me any tabs on the desktop anymore (or only 1-2), even though I still have >50 open on my mobile. This was a few weeks ago, so waiting, phone reboot, etc., all doesn't fix it. – Ela782 Jun 17 '16 at 21:36

Maybe some day Google Chrome for Android will support extensions, for now Yandex Browser for Android support Extensions from Opera.
Yandex Browser and Opera both based on Blink web engine, same as Google Chrome.

Use a chrome extension. Like this: BookMark My Tabs

Or you can use this Copy All URLS to get the direct links of all open TABs. Save as .html (easiest format but not the only one available) and then easily import as bookmarks/favorites from there using Chrome's built in import feature. Assuming you don't have an Apple product tablet.

ie: Chrome settings button (Chrome) >> Booksmarks >> Import bookmarks >> Bookmarks .HTML file >> Point to generated .HTML file

    Chrome for Android doesn't support extensions. – LJD200 Jun 16 '15 at 19:59
