How to Bookmark All Tabs at Once in Your Desktop Browser

You have a million tabs open and need to shut down your computer. But you don’t want to lose all the tabs. Here’s how to bookmark all open tabs at once for the major desktop browsers.

You’ve been doing some web surfing — researching things, shopping for stuff — and you need to shut down your computer. But you don’t want to lose where you were on your tabs. You could bookmark each tab individually, but that takes too long.

As long as you’re not using a private browsing window, your browsing history is saved, which means you could reopen previously closed tabs. But opening each previously closed tab individually also takes too much time.

There is an easy solution to bookmark all open tabs at once in each of the major desktop browsers. Today we’ll show you how in Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, Opera, the new Chromium-based Edge, and Safari.

Chrome

Click the Chrome menu button in the upper-right corner of the browser window.

Hover your mouse over Bookmarks and then select Bookmark open pages from the submenu.

Select Bookmark open pages from Chrome menu

On the Bookmark all tabs dialog, select where to create the new folder for the bookmarks. We selected Bookmarks bar so the folder would be easily accessible.

Then, enter a Name for the folder and click Save.

Our folder of bookmarks displays on the Bookmarks bar.

To open all the bookmarks in new tabs to the right of the currently open tabs, right-click on the new folder on the Bookmarks bar and select Open all (X), where “X” is the number of tabs saved in the folder.

You can also Open all (X) in new window or Open all (X) in incognito window.

Then, click Add Bookmarks.

Vivaldi

In Vivaldi, you can bookmark all open tabs using the Tab Sessions feature.

Click Save.

The tabs in the saved session will be opened to the right of the currently open tabs in the current window. If you want to open the tabs from the saved session in a new window, check the Open Session in a New Window box.

Click Open.

Opera

In Opera, you can save all open tabs, but they’re not saved as bookmarks. They’re saved into a Speed Dial folder.

To save all open tabs to a Speed Dial folder, right-click on any tab and select Save all tabs as Speed Dial folder.

Choose Save Tabs as Speed Dial folder in Vivaldi

The new Speed Dial folder with your saved tabs is named Folder by default.

To change the name of the new Speed Dial folder, move your mouse over the folder and click on the button that displays. Then, select Edit title.

Enter a new Name on the popup dialog and click OK.

You can also Open all in new window or Open all in new private window.

Chromium-Based Edge

You can bookmark tabs in Edge, but Microsoft is working on its new Chromium-based version of Edge that’s much better. We’ll show you how to bookmark all open tabs in the new Chromium-based Edge.

To save the currently open tabs, click the Edge menu () and select Favorites.

Select Add open pages to favorites in Chromium-based Edge

On the Add all tabs to favorites dialog, enter a Name for the folder that will contain the saved tabs and select a folder to save the new folder in. We chose the Favorites bar.

Click Save.

On the Favorites bar, right-click on the new folder and select Open all (X), where “X” is the number of tabs saved in the folder. This opens all the saved tabs in new tabs in the current window.

You can also Open all (X) in new window or Open all (X) in incognito window.

NOTE: If you don’t see the Favorites bar, click the Edge menu (), scroll down on the General pane, and click the Show the favorites bar toggle button so it’s blue and reads On.

Select Open all (X) in Chromium-based Edge

Safari

If you’re using a Mac and you like Safari, you can save all open tabs in Safari also.

Make sure Safari is the active app and then click the Bookmarks menu at the top of the screen. Then, select Add Bookmarks for These X Tabs, where “X” is the number of tabs open in the window.

Select Add Bookmarks for These X Tabs in Safari

On the dialog that displays, select where to Add this bookmarks folder to from the drop-down list.

Then, enter a name for the new folder that will contain all the bookmarks from all the open tabs. The default name is Saved Tabs.

Click Add.

To open all the saved bookmarks in new tabs in the current Safari window, first, make sure the sidebar is open on the left. If not, click the Show sidebar button at the top of the window.

Then, right-click on the new folder and select Open in New Tabs.

Select Open in New Tabs in Safari

Other Options for Saving All Open Tabs

You can also save the URLs from all your open tabs by copying all the URLs from all the open tabs in your browser and pasting them into a text file or other file.

If you accidentally close Chrome or Firefox without saving your open tabs, you can reopen closed tabs. But you can only do that one tab at a time.

If you open the same set of web pages every time you open your browser, you can set your browser to do that automatically for you.
