Chrome’s Pin Tab feature

Looks like We got at least one close match of a  feature of  Windows 7 Pin to taskbar. Chrome  tabs have got a Pin Tab feature which not only lets you make the tab stick but also lets you reduce the size of the tab to the favicon.

This is how it works exactly :

  • Right Click and select Pin Tab.
  • In order to remove it from the pinned state, just right click and click on Pin tab
  • Move it after the first unpinned tab and it gets a bigger tab i.e. Unpinned.
  • When you move the same one back into the group of already pinned tab, it automatically becomes pinned.
  • Open a new tab and just drag it in between the pinned tab, it becomes a pinned tab also.

So once you have a pinned tab rest of them can be pinned very easily by just pushing them into each other. Also this feature is only available in development build. Via Lifehacker


  1. Hi, I am submitting a tech tip for your blog readers.
    A New Life To Old Flash Drives
    Don’t throw your old USB flash drive away. Instead, you can use an old flash drive to prevent your laptop from being stolen. Here is how.

    1. Install free software on your laptop. (free for personal use)
    2. Fasten a neck strap to your old USB flash drive.
    3. Fasten the other end of the strap to a table.
    4. Plug in the USB flash drive into a USB port of a laptop.
    5. Lock the laptop by pressing the Windows logo key and L key together.

    When a thief removes the laptop from the table, the USB flash drive will be disconnected from the laptop and then a loud siren sound will be emitted. (See photos: In addition to sounding an alarm, the software sends an alert to your mobile phone. This tip is also useful if you worry about identity theft. The free software destroys data in case of laptop theft.
