I checked all the questions asked already about this subject - all of them are about bookmarking all open tabs (CTRL-SHIFT-D in Chrome...), but none are about automatically closing them all afterwards.

Is there a way (by script or an extension) to bookmark and immediately close all open tabs (for example, put them all as bookmarks in a new bookmarks folder using the current date/time as the folder name)?

I found an extension that does something similar but it uses it's own facility to save the opened tabs - I want something that uses Chrome's regular bookmarks.

I checked loads of existing Chrome extensions - like OneTab, TabHamster, Bookmark My Tabs, Neater Bookmarks, Bookmarks Menu, Neater Bookmarks, Open Bookmark Manager, TooManyTabs, Goomarks, Papaly Bookmark Manager, Bookmax, Qileke Navigation, Dewey Bookmarks and more - I installed and tested all of them, but none of them do exactly what I'm looking for :/

  • Doesn't ctrl shft W close all tabs? – Raystafarian Apr 6 '15 at 13:20
  • @Raystafarian yes, but then if I want to bookmark and close all windows I would need to press: ctrl-shift-d, enter, ctrl-shift-w... – traveh Apr 7 '15 at 7:52
  • Exactly. Or write yourself a script that pulls those commands – Raystafarian Apr 7 '15 at 12:44
  • @Raystafarian right, but I don't know how to write scripts for Chrome, and I couldn't find how to do it (or more precisely, I found too much information and didn't manage to filter it to exactly what I need without spending hours learning...) :) – traveh Apr 8 '15 at 9:36

    If you don't want to learn, you might want to post to softwarerecs.stackexchange.com with requirements, they may know of an extension that does this. – Raystafarian Apr 8 '15 at 9:43

TidyTab does the job with 2 clicks. It's like OneTab with bookmark saving. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tidytab/lkglfdjcamhjoggmabobhggmpfjhccff

    Can you explain about this extension? – yass Apr 18 '17 at 20:03
  • Cool, it indeed does the job, thanks! I'm wondering though about the extensive permissions it requires - why does it need to "read and change all the data on the websites you visit"...? – traveh Apr 19 '17 at 8:08
  • Permissions are fixed. – Eren Seymen Apr 21 '17 at 14:45
