How to have many windows of browsers

18 Aug 2019, 18:00

How can I have many windows if browsers and be able to detect which tab or window I am on?

If i have 4 tabs open say... I could CTRL tab between the tabs and read the URL I suppose?

Else, I could have open in separate windows - but how would I switch to the right window?
(I don't want to have separate instances - needs to be the same profile.)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Depending on what you want to do with this information WinGetTitle could be all you need.

Awesome
I just checked Windows Spy. I think that will do the trick for me. I didn't realise each tab would have a different title. 👍🏼

Actually... one thing...
Is there a way to uniquely identifying tabs?
I'm guessing 2 tabs could have the same Title.
Which then would cause a problem?

You would have to provide more information what you want to do, because even if you looked up the URL, if it's the same title it will almost every time also be the same URL.

At least on firefox, WinText is also empty, that would not get you any further.
But I don't think that it is very likely that you will encounter two different websites that have the same WinTitle.

It's not clear what you seek to do with the URLs/titles once you have them.

If you are trying to automate things on the Chrome browser, try this extension: AutoControl Shortcut Manager.
It will surprise you how much you can do with it. It looks deceivingly simple.

For example, you can copy all your currently open URLs to the clipboard and then do whatever you want with them.
If you want the tab titles instead, you can get a list of those too.
If you want to get the tabs in the current window only, that's also possible.
You can sort, move, group, filter... whatever.
