I know that I can go to history section in desktop and there I can locate the history of android tabs separately and then can open the tabs one by one.

But I want to transfer all of my current Android session to desktop at once without going through the arduous process of locations URLs in history one by one and then opening them.

Use Tabs from other devices on the left of History (you can go straight to chrome://history/syncedTabs), click on Open all in menu () on the right.

chrome://history/syncedTabs

  • This only shows the tabs that have already been closed. I don't feel that it answers the question of "current session". – Tom Anderson Sep 11 '17 at 4:58

    Actually, I changed my mind. I think it answers the question but it's incomplete. If the tabs are too old, they don't show up in the list, but we can use the workaround suggested by @Luke Flegg. Also, stale entries appear in the "Tabs from other devices" list. – Tom Anderson Sep 11 '17 at 6:16

    As @TomAnderson says, this only shows a list of recent tabs, not the list of actually open tabs. In other words, there's no correlation to whether the tabs are currently open or have been closed, only to whether they've been recently visited. – waldyrious Feb 14 '18 at 9:55

The only workaround (if you can even call it that) is refreshing the tabs on my phone, one by one. Then they appear on my desktop. This isn't viable when you have hundreds of open tabs on the phone.

    I agree that this is an answer. The "Tabs from other devices" response by @Hex does work but only if the tabs aren't too old. If they are too old, then this workaround can fix it. I just refreshed 134 tabs on my Android. It took around five minutes so it is possible to do but very annoying. – Tom Anderson Sep 11 '17 at 6:19

    I just found a solution to avoid the annoying process of refreshing all tabs one by one. If you go to your Google Android settings section and you click in your Google account preferences (the avatar), you can force a toggle on/off/on to get all the tabs synced. – Ferran Basora Jan 1 '18 at 19:51

    @FerranBasora "Google Android settings" - where is this? on the mobile? – lifebalance Feb 3 '18 at 19:12
  • @lifebalance I think FerranBasora meant Account settings. Usually in Android settings you can find accounts that are synced. Like Microsoft live accounts or Google accounts. When you locate the google account you use for your chrome, you open its sync settings and find "Chrome". Turn that off and on again — force sync. Worked for me with over 100 tabs – Ev0oD Sep 25 at 11:10

A somewhat working solution is found here:

I wonder if it preserves the order of the open tabs, this is crucial for me.

Connect your usb keyboard to a micro usb adapter then plug it into your phone s charging port. This will remove the annoyingness to refresh tabs

  • That doesn't answer the question of being able to export the tabs from Android to desktop. – Dan Atkinson Jan 24 at 12:42
