I have so many tabs open in Chrome that I have been literally unable to close them, and my browser has been rendered largely useless. HELP!
The central problem is that the focus bounces from tab to tab so fast that I can not stay on any one tab long enough to close it. In addition the "three dots" menu in the upper right, which I believe is supposed to have a "close all tabs" button, does only on rare occasions. I do not know what determines if this button is present or how to get it back when it is not. I'd accept an answer to any one of these questions), except: not 1) if there is no way to navigate to the "close all tabs" button.
- Is there a map somewhere that shows which Chrome controls are available under what circumstances, so I can navigate to the "close all tabs" button?
- Is there a way to freeze tabs in place, so that the focus changes only when I select a different tab? This is what I want most, because I would like to be able to open a tab and look at it, and sometimes save some info., before deciding if I want to close it.
- Is there a way to make the "close all tabs" button appear when it is not on the three dots menu?
- If there is no easy way to solve this with native Chrome, is there an app that would let me do so? If it does not provide a way to freeze the tabs in place, it has to work even though the focus is bouncing rapidly from tab to tab. I'm on a Moto G with Stylus 5G running Android 12, with security updates to August 2022
Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you. } --andrewH
