How to Name a Window in Chrome on any OS

Google Chrome Browser

Name multiple windows to easily navigate them.

Scores of open tabs are still easy to manage. At least, you can see the name of the site from the tab and navigate to it. But managing multiple windows can be tricky. Many people like to use separate windows when they’re working to keep stuff for work separate from other stuff.

When you’re using multiple Chrome windows for work and non-work-related stuff, it can get hard to keep track of the stuff. But with Chrome version 90, managing multiple Chrome windows is getting easier with the addition of window naming feature.

Naming a Window in Chrome

To get window naming feature, you need to be using the newest version of Chrome. You can make sure you’re using the updated version from Chrome’s settings.

Go to the three-dot menu on the right corner of the address bar, and select ‘Settings’ from the menu.

From the navigation menu on the left, go to ‘About Chrome’.

If you’re on the latest version of the browser, it should show version 90 or above. Otherwise, the updating will start automatically and you’ll have to relaunch the browser to finish the update.

Once Chrome is updated, you can name the Chrome windows easily on your computer. Open the three-dot menu, and go to ‘More Tools’. Then, click on ‘Name Window’ from the sub-menu.

You can also right-click the browser’s window and then select ‘Name window’ from the context menu.

A ‘Name Window’ textbox will open. Enter the name and click ‘OK’.

The name will appear in the preview window when you hover on an open Google Chrome window from the taskbar.

Chrome will remember the names of the windows when they are restored in case of crashes or when you close them abruptly (if you have configured it so).


It’s rather easy to name Windows in Chrome. Now when you’re working with multiple windows, you can easily manage them.
