Permanently Pin Tabs In Google Chrome

When you pin a tab in Google Chrome, it shrinks to an extent that you can only see the favicon. This is a great feature for those users who have lot of tabs open and want to save up some space, but the biggest headache is that the pinned tabs are not permanent. The moment you close and then start another session of Google Chrome, all pinned tabs will be lost.

Is there any way to make tabs pinned permanently? Yes, you can make a number of tabs pinned permanently by using a small command switch.

First right-click the Google Chrome shortcut and head over to Properties. Now add:

– -pinned-tab-count=x

at the end of Target path. Replace x by any number of pinned tabs you want, for example, we chose 4. So the complete path becomes:

C:\Users\Nakodari\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe – -pinned-tab-count=4

Google Chrome Properties

Now in the final step add the complete website URLs next to this command switch. Make sure there is a space between each URL.

C:\Users\Nakodari\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe – -pinned-tab-count=4 https://www.addictivetips.com/ http://www.twitter.com/ http://www.facebook.com http://www.google.com/reader/

If you want to 6 tabs to be permanently pinned, then you will have to enter 6 URLs and change the value of x to 6. It’s that easy.
