How to Name Chrome Windows for Alt+Tab and Taskbar

If you leave multiple Google Chrome windows open to manage tabs, you can go one step further and name every window. Chrome’s built-in naming characteristic makes it simple to remember whether a taskbar or an overlay. What is the window for the screen?

The Windows Naming feature was introduced in Chrome 90 and is available for Chrome on Mac, Windows 10, and Linux. It’s easy to use and can prevent you from opening the wrong window.

First, click on the three-dot menu icon at the top right of the Chrome window.
