How to Manage and Organize Your Tabs in Samsung Internet Browser
If you’re like most people, you have over a dozen tabs open in your mobile browser at any one time. When we’re looking for something, most of us just open a new tab, google it, and close the browser; it creates more and more clutter over time.
If you own a Galaxy phone and use the built-in Samsung Internet as your default mobile browser, you can benefit from its features that help you organize your tabs. Let’s see how.
1. Choose a Cleaner Tab Layout
Samsung Internet lets you view your tabs in three layouts: List, Stack, and Grid. The app uses the default list layout, but it might not look the most user-friendly to you. To change it, go to the Tabs menu, press the More options (the three-dot menu), select see like, and select the desired layout. Faucet OKAY to finish.
If you find it cumbersome to switch between tabs, you can change the position of the address bar in the browser for easier one-handed use by bringing it down to thumb level, i.e. ie above the toolbar. From there, you can simply swipe across the address bar to switch between adjacent tabs. This is one of the best features of Samsung Internet.
2. Group your open tabs
If you keep a lot of tabs open in your browser, it’s a good idea to group related ones together. This way, you can stay organized and quickly find what you’re looking for without having to scroll through what seems like an endless list of tabs.
To do this, go to the Tabs menu, press the More options button, select Group tabsthen select the desired tabs and press Band. Now give this tab group a name and press Create.
3. Lock Important Tabs
For some reason, Samsung Internet doesn’t let you undo your action when you accidentally close a tab you didn’t want. This is such a small but useful feature that it’s surprising the browser doesn’t have it.
Some important tabs may be open and you don’t want to accidentally close them. In this case, you can lock these tabs in the browser, which creates a barrier before you can close them. To do this, simply go to the Tabs menu, long press on a tab to select it and press on other tabs to select more, then press To block.
4. Sync Tabs Across Your Galaxy Devices
Samsung Internet Browser is available for Samsung phones, tablets and watches. If you have multiple Samsung devices, you can sync your open tabs on each of them. To do this, you must have a Samsung account and sign in to it on all your devices. Creating an account is one of the first things to do when first setting up your Samsung phone.
To sync your tabs, tap the Tools (the toolbar hamburger menu), select Settingsand activate Sync with Samsung Cloud. Along with your open tabs, the browser also syncs your saved pages, bookmarks, and quick access shortcuts.
Make sure syncing is active on all your Galaxy devices. Once done, you can access your synced tabs by going to the Tabs menu, tapping More optionsand selecting Synchronized tabs.
5. Keep relevant bookmarks in a folder
If you have a lot of tagged tabs, you can move them to separate folders the same way you grouped your tabs for better organization. Follow the steps below.
- Press the Bookmarks on your toolbar, tap the three-dot menu and select Create folder.
- Give your folder a name and press Create.
- Long press on a bookmark to select it and press on others to add more.
- Faucet Moveselect your folder and press Select.

Organizing your tabs is just one of the many things you can do in Samsung’s Mobile Internet Browser to make it work better for you. While Google Chrome remains the most popular web browser in the world, we think Samsung Internet is pretty underrated for the features it offers.
