I know chrome://history/syncedTabs will show me recent chrome tabs, but I want to be able to see all chrome tabs. I have 4 or 5 devices, each of which has 100+ tabs.

I don't need to retain any state from any of these tabs -- I just want to get the URLs.

Does anyone know of a way to do this?

    I suspect there's a temp user file on each device which lists the open tabs. Finding that would give me what I need. – rarrarrarrr Jul 11 '17 at 15:33

    This answer seems to list the location. I'll need to check up on this and report back! android.stackexchange.com/a/116876 – rarrarrarrr Jul 11 '17 at 15:38

So, if you aren't rooted, my comments above are a no-go.

However, you can accomplish the same thing by using chrome devtools' remote debugging.

Start by plugging your android device into your computer and firing up chrome. Then, in the chrome dev tools, click the hamburger button --> More tools --> Remote Devices.

As long as you've enabled USB Debugging on your android device, you should be able to select your phone from the list of devices. This displays all of the tabs you have open!

From there, you can select-all and copy to get your tab URLs.

Note: if a tab has a "long" URL, it will be shortened with an in the middle of the URL. If you specifically need URLs that have been shortened like this, be sure to right-click the link and copy the full URL!
