How to enable stacked tabs in Google Chrome [Guide]

Google Chrome is a great browser but it’s management of tabs leaves a bit to be desired. That’s where the chrome://flags page comes in. With a quick click of the enable button, the stacked tab feature can quickly be enabled. Let’s get started!

Before We Begin

The stacked tab feature is only supported in Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, etc.) by Google. Sorry, Mac and Linux users.

To disable the stacked tab feature — if you decide you don’t like it, after enabling it — simply follow this guide and do the opposite.

  • Open a new tab in Google Chrome type chrome://flags and press the enter key.
  • Press ctrl + f on your keyboard and type ‘stacked tabs‘.


  • Click the enabled button underneath ‘Stacked tabs’.
  • Select the ‘relaunch now’ option when it shows itself. This will restart Google Chrome with the stacked tabs feature enabled.
