You can easily move your tabs at the top of the browser window or into a new window.
Click a tab and drag it to different position along the top of the browser window.
Move a tab into a new window
Click and drag the tab away from the address bar and into another window. The tab should pop in automatically. You can also pull the tab out into its own, new window.
Pin a tab in place
If you don't want a particular tab to be moving around, you right-click (or control-click, on a Mac) the tab and select Pin tab.
A pinned tab will appear on the left side of your browser window. Unlike your other tabs, it will be smaller in size and only show the site's icon.
Resize your browser window
To quickly resize your browser window, drag the window or tab to a docking position on your computer monitor or browser. When the docking icon appears, release the mouse over the icon to have the tab snap in place.
Here are the different docking positions:
- Top of your monitor: The tab appears maximized in a new window when you release it.
- Bottom of your monitor: The tab appears in a new window that fills the lower half of your monitor.
- Left and right sides of your monitor: The tab opens in a new window that fills up either the left or right half of your monitor.
- Bottom of a browser window: The tab appears in a new window below the existing browser window. The two windows splits the monitor in half.
- Left and right sides of a browser window: The tab opens in a new window that fills up either the left or right half of your monitor. The existing browser window takes up the other half of the monitor, so that the two windows appear side-by-side.
