If I start hearing some music/sound/noise while i'm browsing in chrome, and I want to know which tab it is . And I have multiple chrome windows each with multiple tabs, then how can I identify which it is?

I can see that the speaker tray icon in windows 7 doesn't do it, it only shows the currently active tab in the currently active window, even if another tab in another window is making the noise.

    Shift+Esc and open up the browsers' task manager....you can see all the processes running on your browser. Hearing music/sound ...so, possibly you might be able to see a fluctuation in the network tab in the Task Manager. – Raktim Biswas Jun 5 '16 at 18:04

    @Rakitić thanks, that might work.. I wonder though if it's backgroudn audio and the audio has fully loaded then maybe not.. i'll have to try it next time it happens. But I see it does work for youtube videos, so it's promising. I can see a fluctuating tab hitting top of the list in network usage from time to time and I can double click it. So that seems to work for youtube videos, at least if they're not fully loaded, don't know if once they're loaded, ditto for plain audio, but certainly promising, i'll have to test it when it next happens – barlop Jun 5 '16 at 18:16

On the right side of each tab, if it is making noise there will be a little speaker icon. Of course, you'll have to look at all your tabs to see it.

  • I meant to mention that one in the question.. it's not that feasiible if I don't even know which chrome window it is, to go through every window and then every tab within every window – barlop Jun 5 '16 at 18:13
