I often have 6 or 7 separate Chrome windows open, often with 5-10 tabs in each. When I look at Windows Task Manager, I see each chrome.exe process, with some using a large amount of memory. How can I find which particular tab the process refers to? I want to know which one uses the most memory and close that tab instead of having to close every Chrome window. Is there any way to get this information? This is on Windows Vista, but it is the same on other versions of Windows as well.
Press Shift+Esc to bring up the Chrome Task Manager. It will tell you how much memory each tab uses, and its process id if you enable the process id column. (and also let you close tabs if you want)
Use the Shift+ Esc shortcut key to bring up the Task Manager,
or go to
the wrench icon and go to
Tools -> Task Manager.
You'll be able to see the CPU usage of every tab and plugin as well as memory usage.
Chrome should have a separate process for each tab. Find the Chrome process that is using up the most CPU porwer (using task manager) and kill it.
