If you keep many Google Chrome windows open to organize your tabs like me, you can go one step further and name each window. Chrome’s built-in naming feature makes it easy to remember the windows name in the Taskbar or the overview screen (Alt+Tab).
The Windows naming feature was introduced in Chrome 90 and is available for Chrome on Windows 10, Mac, and Linux. It is easy to use and can save you from opening the wrong window.
This is for devices running Chrome 90. Screenshots are from Windows 10
First, launch Chrome and open a Chrome window. Next, click the three-dot menu (the hamburger) icon in the top-right of the Chrome window. Refer to below image:
Now, from the drop-down menu, select More Tools. See below image:
Next, from the expanded options, click Name Window. If you don’t see this, you are not running Chrome 90. To check your Chrome version, go to:
Click the three-dot menu (the hamburger) icon > Help > About Google Chrome
Now, your Google version will be displayed. Google should auto update to the latest version.
See following image for your expanded options:
A pop-up text box will appear. Now, enter the name for the window and click OK. Refer to below image:
Alternatively, you can right-click the title bar of the Chrome window and select Name Window from the drop-down menu and go through the process of assigning it a name. See below image:
You will now see this name in the Alt+Tab on Windows 10. See following image:
Additionally, this name will appear in the Taskbar on Windows 10. Refer to below image:

You are finished. This is probably a pretty niche feature, but for those of us who like to organize Chrome tabs by separating them out into windows, it’s a handy little trick.
