When I am low on memory, Chrome discards tabs in the background. It reloads the page, when I try to switch to that tab.

I have important work on some of that tabs, and I would like to prevent Chrome to discard them. I do not care, if I run out of memory and have to use pagefiles. Those tabs need to be kept open. How is that possible?

Go to chrome://discards/

Toggle "Auto Discardable" to X for the tabs you need to keep active.
