Did You Know About These Exciting Hidden Google Chrome Features?

By R S Ali

Here are a few hidden Google Chrome features you probably didn't know about, as on PC Mag:

1.Dragging multiple tabs at once

A lot of people know about dragging and dropping tabs in Chrome, but did you know you can do this with more than one tabs at one time? All you have to do is hold down the Ctrl key and click on all the tabs you want to move. On Mac, the key to be held down is the Ctrl key.

2.The Chrome Omnibox Being a Calculator

Some people might know that if you type a calculation in the Google search bar, it calculates for you automatically. But what you might not have known is that math functions can be solved in the omnibox without having to go to Google.com. Just type a basic math sum in the omnibox and the answer will come to your suggestions listed below.

Note that this feature is only applicable if your default omnibox search is Google.

3. A Basic Image Search Browser

Sometimes you come across a picture on your computer that you have no idea where it is from. To find out, just drag it to your Chrome browser window and it will give a you a file path.

4. Using your keyboard to Browse your Tabs

Clicking on tabs is not the only way to browse through them. If you hold down the Control key (Command on Macs) and press a number from 1 to 9, every tab you have opened has a number assigned to it starting with 1 on the left most side.

5. Have a set of pages you want to automatically open upon launch

Some of us, especially those who work from home have a fixed, specific set of pages we have to open every time we launch our browsers - like an email client and a Facebook. You don't have to manually open them every time - if you go to the Settings menu, go to the section "On Startup" (or just type chrome://settings/startup in the omnibox) and click on the option to "Open a specific page or set of pages." Next to that option is a "Set pages" link, in which you can choose your starting sites (you can even choose from recent history or currently open tabs).
