Make Using Multiple Sites Painless with OneTab

No comments , Share It:
Have you ever looked up & realized that you had like 10 tabs open on your computer screen and you needed to save all of them? What about needing to have them all available for your next class? I know I have. Teaching several preps, I hate having to switch back and forth between all the tabs I may need for a day. I could have open a Google Slide presentation, a couple of YouTube videos, a website, a photograph, etc. and I need them all for a class period. Then I have the same amount for the next period because it is a different class. UGH!! Well, OneTab makes this super easy!

Check out the instructions below or this Video Tutorial to see how to do this! Never again will you get frustrated about having to switch websites!

Step 1

This is a Google Extension so you will need to be on Google Chrome in order to benefit from this application. Go to the Google Extension site & add it. You will notice that mine says "Rate it" because I already have the application. You will click the "Add to Chrome" button like the one below it.

Step 2

Step 1 should then put this icon on the right top of your screen.

Step 3

Now in Google Chrome, open all the tabs that you need for this particular situation. Once you have the ones you want, click on the icon in Step 2. This screen will then appear. (I used Social Media Sites as my example.)

Step 4

Next, you will want to name your tabs so you know which set of tabs you will want to restore. To do this, you will click on the words 4 tabs and a box will appear for you to rename it. See below how I named mine Social Media.

Step 5

Now that you have everything set up, you can close your browser. When you need to utilize these tabs again, all you do is open your browser & click on the icon from Step 2 in the top right-hand side of your screen. This screen will pop up & you will click on "Restore All."

Step 6 

After clicking on "Restore All," all your tabs should be restored on your browser like the screen below.


Step 7

If you want to be able to keep using these same tabs day after day, I highly suggest that you lock your tabs so you don't risk deleting them. All you need to do is click the MORE tab on the screen you used in Step 5. After you click MORE, you will have the option to click "Lock this Tab Group." I suggest you do this. You can also Star your group if that helps you organize them as well.

When I saw OneTab for the first time, I was hooked. I LOVE being about to make tabs for each class period as well as for those sites that I need to visit every morning. I hope that OneTab helps you as much as it has helped me! 

Comment below & tell me how you plan to use OneTab! I would love to hear some creative ways to make all of our lives easier!!!
