Latest Chrome Beta Lets You Reorder Your Tabs Using Keyboard Power

While you can easily reorder tabs using your mouse (just drag and drop the tab in question left or right to slot it in the desired place), many power users prefer to do as much as possible using keyboard shortcuts. The logic for both Windows and macOS follows the same that was long introduced in Linux. To move a tab, you need to hit ctrl+shift and page up or page down, depending on which direction you want to move the tab. On the regular MacBook keyboard, page up or page down can be accessed by holding down the fn key and hitting arrow up or down, so you will in essence have to pair ctrl+shift+fn with arrow up or down. Many Windows laptops will require similar workarounds, depending on what keyboard layout they offer.

Chrome Beta 102 was released last week, but we haven’t yet discovered everything new in it. As it turns out, the new Chrome version allows you to reorder tabs on Mac and Windows using keyboard shortcuts. The feature was previously only available on Linux and is now being rolled out to all desktop versions of the browser, with the exception of Chrome OS (or chromeOS, if you will).

Chrome 102 Beta reorder tabs keyboard shortcuts anim. While we have only been able to confirm this new behavior on macOS, Redditor Leopeva64 (who tipped us about this) offers a screen recording that shows off the keyboard shortcut in use on Windows. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the keyboard shortcut is functional on Chrome OS just yet, where we haven’t been able to reproduce the shortcut under Dev version 102.0.4992.0.

To get started with these keyboard shortcuts yourself, you just need to install the latest Chrome Beta release on your computer—or wait for the stable release of Chrome 102 later this month. Google’s browser is constantly under development, so be sure to check what’s new in every version of Chrome if you want to stay up to date.
