    How to Enable or Disable Fast Tab/Window Close in Google Chrome in Windows


    This tutorial is no longer valid in the latest Google Chrome.


    In Google Chrome, you can enable or disable a flag for an experimental feature which affects the tab and window closing performance of Google Chrome.

    When the Fast tab/window close flag is enabled, Chrome runs a tab's onunload JavaScript handler independently of the GUI.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable fast tab and window closing in Google Chrome for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Google Chrome.

    2. Copy and paste the link below into the address bar of Chrome, and press Enter.
    *Arrow chrome://flags/#enable-fast-unload
    3. Select Disabled (default) or Enabled for the Fast tab/window close setting you want. (see screenshot below)

    4. Click/tap on the RELAUNCH NOW button at the bottom to apply. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,
    Shawn

    Enable or Disable Tab Audio Muting in Google Chrome  

    Sad to see such a useful feature being replaced with something more complex and useless!

    I think the Chrome Devs just want to p*ss around with new ideas!

    The top reasons for abandoning the experiment:

    Reason:
    Potential dataloss risk/behavioral complexity having an actionable surface so close to a tab close button.
    Solution:
    Enable hiding of close buttons, everybody knows you can close a tab with a wheel-click.

    Reason:
    Confusing interactions with mute-whole-site capabilities.
    Solution:
    Leave site muting in the Site Exceptions list only.

    Reason:
    Code complexity.
    Solution:
    Suck it up! To enable/disable a feature with a quick switch of a flag, can't be that complex!!!

    Google Chrome Tabs.

    In Google Chrome, I can right click and open numerous links in a new tab. But when I click on the tab the program freezes and I'm forced to use Task Manager to close Google Chrome.

  5. can't close googel chrome ???

    There is a setting in Google Chrome that allows it to continue running various tasks in the background after you have closed the browser window. If this is allowed in your Google Chrome settings, then it can indeed be running even when there is no visible
    window. Personally, I don't allow Google Chrome to continue running in the background/ But that is for you to decide. To solve your immediate problem though, I suggest you turn off (don't allow) this option at least temporarily:

    1. Start Google Chrome. There should of course be a visible browser window.
    2. Access the Google Chrome menu by clicking on the three dots at the top right corner of the browser window (it's just below the standard Microsoft icons to minimize maximize and close the window).
    3. Select "Settings" from that menu. Some basic Google Chrome settings should be displayed in the browser.
    4. Go to the bottom of the "Basic Settings" page and click on "Advanced".
    5. Locate the "System" group within the "Advanced Settings". Its near the bottom of this second settings page.
    6. One of the "System" settings is "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed".

      Turn this option OFF by sliding its little button to the left.
    7. Close the Google Chrome browser.
    There should now be no complaints about Google Chrome still running when you think it isn't.

    If you would like to re-enable this feature later, just follow the same 7 Step procedure above.

    Of course to re-enable the feature, replace "Turn this option OFF" in Step 6 with "Turn this option
    ON
    ".

    I hope this helps.

    It seems they've abandoned the Tab Audio Muting experiment, for whatever reason, and are focusing on a new experiment - Manage audio focus across tabs...
