How to ‘Pin’ a Google Chrome Tab

You can “pin” frequently used Google Chrome tabs to save space on the Chrome toolbar. When you pin a Chrome tab, it moves to the beginning of the list of the tabs.

Favicon

When you pin a tab, the web site’s name is hidden. Instead, you will see the favicon of the website. This is usually the logo of the websites. I am sure you can identify websites you frequently visit by looking at their logos.

For example, you are familiar with the logos for Facebook and Instagram. For websites like these, pinning them to the toolbar helps you save the space on the toolbar.

There is one more benefit to pinned tabs. When you close Google Chrome and open it the next time, you pinned tabs open by default. You don’t have to open them each time you launch Google Chrome.

I find this extremely useful. I keep feedly.com pinned on my Google Chrome window. Every time I open Chrome, the Feedly website opens by default, ready for me to start going through the articles for the day.
