Reorder shortcuts using ctrl-shift pgup/pgdn on Windows/Mac just like you can already do in Linux.
What's New? No permissions now required for this extension to work. About Chrome on Linux lets you re-order your tabs using the keyboard shortcuts ctrl-shift-pgup and ctrl-shift-pgdn. If you use Windows or Mac these shortcuts are not available to you. This tiny, unobtrusive extension fixes that. Shortcuts Move active tab left - ctrl-shift-pgup Move active tab right - ctrl-shift-pgdn Move active tab to first position - ctrl-shift-1 Move active tab to last position - ctrl-shift-9 Move active tab to nth position - ctrl-shift-<2..8> Changelog v1.7 Thanks Yonathon Randolph! - Listen on keydown instead of keyup - Update to manifest verison 2 - Prevent events from reaching webpage - Minor code cleanup F.A.Q. Q: It's not working on this page! A: Please note that NO Chrome extensions with a content script (such as this) are allowed to run in the Google Chrome Webstore (i.e. this page!) Q: It's not working on other pages! A: Tabs you had open prior to installing this extensions need to be reloaded before this will work. Q: I use a MacBook Pro. The extension doesn't seem to work! A: Fn-up/down arrow is equivalent to pgup/down. This means that using ctrl-shift-fn-up/down arrow is what you need! Q: I sync my extensions across different Operating Systems. Will this break things on Linux? A: No. The extension does nothing on Linux to avoid ctrl-shift-pgup/down moving the tab twice. Q: What did you test this on? A: Chrome 11/12 on Mac / Windows 7 / Windows XP / Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Q: Still having problems? A: Let me know and I will fix it. Don't make me ask for obvious details though. I would need browser version and operating system. Did you try it with no other extensions installed?
- (2022-06-02) Faris Hijazi: does exactly what it says
- (2021-04-02) Carlos Morales: Does what it supposed to do. A very simple, but very productive functionality, so much i think it should be chrome native. Thanks for create it and sharing.
- (2021-02-06) Jesse Ω: Exactly what i wanted ty!
- (2020-02-18) ANRK ALT: works perfectly.
- (2020-01-02) David Gray Lassiter: Doesn't work
- (2019-11-09) Dohyun Jang: It's amazing.
- (2019-03-14) Prayank Lalan: Hey mate! I desperately want to use your extension for it implements the unique feature of reordering tabs to a specific position. However, after a successful demo run, its functionality has completely broken down in subsequent uses. I suspect that it might be clashing with another extension that I'm using in conjuction with it ('The Great Suspender') but that's just a guess. Please suggest a fix if one occurs to you or I'm afraid I reluctantly would have to switch to an alternative.
- (2019-01-12) Luciano Callero: Must have! I've been using this feature in Linux since ever, got very used to it. Never really understand why the feature is missing in both Windows and Mac. Thanks a lot.
- (2018-11-12) Jason Gomez: Essential plugin!
- (2018-11-08) Douglas de Jesus: For anyone saying it doesn't work, have you tried restarting the browser? That fixed it for me. Works well but a couple suggestions: - Allow users to set their own key combinations - When using the arrow keys, wrap around (e.g. if you try to move the first tab left, move it to the end)
- (2018-07-16) Eric Chang: doesn't work on Mac, and causes me to be unable to log into a company site
- (2018-06-14) Eddie Velez: Doesn't work. Chrome 67, OSX 10.12.6
- (2018-05-20) whole product: blue tabs
- (2018-04-05) Ádám Szi: works as intended
- (2018-03-29) I C: Thank you so much! Answers precisely what I was looking for, coming to Windows 10 from Ubuntu. The "need to reload tabs that preceded installation of this extension" should be made a more frontal note :D Is there a way it'd opt to override Google Docs so even G-DOCS tabs could be moved?
- (2018-03-16) kyujin kang (digiry): It's useful for Mac user.
- (2018-03-12) Cory Pollard: Brilliant. Should be default keyboard shortcut on all platforms of Chrome. Thankfully there are brilliant developers like bonstio.net to help us out.
- (2017-11-09) Robert Walczyk: Little thing but helps a lot! Thanks
- (2017-10-23) mzma: It just doesn't work at all. Windows 10, Chrome 61.0.3163.100. The keys don't do anything. There's no key combination that can move a pixel. I tried to click on the tab first so not to have focus on some text field or anything but nothing works. I'll keep it active just in case. EDIT: deactivated it. I found another identical extension that does exactly the same (and works).
- (2017-10-06) Javier Pelliza: works as described! Excelent job! thanks!
- (2017-08-23) Spencer Yue: This is a nice extension. If possible, could you make the transition faster? Like around 0-0.15sec if possible? Then I'll give 5 stars.
- (2017-08-02) Casey McGinty: Doesn't seem to work. Even if any of the combos would work, my keyboard does not have PgUp/PgDown and I don't see any way to re-assign the shortcuts.
- (2017-07-15) Tyler Braun: Overview claims that it requires no permissions which is not true and it didn't work on my computer. Hoping he can fix these problems so I can give it a better review.
- (2017-05-11) Darius Daftary: Doesn't work on Mac
- (2017-05-09) Andrew Aponte: Doesn't work with Chrome on macOS Sierra.
- (2017-02-27) Michael Fryar: My only request is the ability to disable ctrl+shift+7 and ctrl+shift+8 since these are reserved shortcuts to create numbered lists and bulleted lists in Google Inbox.
- (2017-02-10) Drew Spencer: Can't fault it. Does the job!
- (2017-01-26) Michal Szymulanski: Does not work on macOs Sierra v. 10.12.3 with Chrome v. 55.0.2883.95
- (2017-01-18) baskar babu: Really liked this extension. It satisfies me in a way that I am not forced to use the mouse for just moving the tabs or rearranging the order.
- (2016-12-29) Teodor Sandu: Thanks! Works on W7
- (2016-11-04) Gerry Tan: Works in most cases, but not if cursor is on the address bar.
- (2021-09-29, v:1.8) Masoud Ghaffarinia: Add support for ChromeOS
It would be great if you can also add the support for ChromeOS where this feature would be used more frequently. Thanks.
- (2020-07-02, v:1.8) Joe Greenheron: Stopped working on MacOS
Hello, I have MacOS 10.15.5 and Chrome 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit). The extension used to work (I know you have to do shift+ctrl+fn+arrow) but it stopped working. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Any tips? Thanks!
- (2019-01-25, v:1.8) Pablo Sorribes Bernhard: Rebind Shortcuts / Custom Shortcuts
Hi! Is it possible to assign your own shortcuts instead of the default ones? I find that the default shortcuts interfere with pre-existing functions in other pages (eg. the shortcut for making Bullet Lists in Asana is "Ctrl+Shift+8", which this extension overrides). So a small shortcut-editor would be nice. Click on the plugin's symbol → Shortcut Editor → assign your own shortcuts for the 5 functions you have. Thanks /Pablo
- (2018-10-19, v:1.8) Benyamin Noori: Can't reorder pages before the contents of the page is loaded
What the title says. BTW, it's excellent. I couldn't live on Windows without it.
- (2018-09-19, v:1.8) Luciano Callero: Windows 10 + Chrome 69
Hi, It's not working on windows 10 with chrome 69, have you tested? Is there a way to debug or something?
- (2017-11-03, v:1.8) Julio Alvarado: On Mac
using this as suggested its not working Fn-up/down arrow is equivalent to pgup/down. This means that using ctrl-shift-fn-up/down arrow is what you need!
- (2017-10-12, v:1.8) Patrick Pfahlberg: Does not seem to work for me
Unfortunately this extension does not work for me. I added it to my Chrome but pressing the designated buttons does nothing. Version 61.0.3163.100 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit) OS: Windows 10 Pro
- (2017-07-15, v:1.8) Tyler Braun: Doesn't work
Installed the extension and it didn't work. Restarted Chrome, didn't work. Restarted my computer, didn't work. I am running Windows 7 and Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (32-bit)
- (2017-05-21, v:1.8) Not working
I press the buttons listed for the shortcuts after installing, and it doesn't work. Nothing happens. My operating system is Windows 7. Google Chrome version 58.0.3029.110. Thanks
- (2017-05-14, v:1.8) M Hobson: TAB relocation to NEW Window
Chome open. I have (forexam) 3 tabs active, I navigate to tab 3 and decide I want to DETACH it from the panel of other tabs. Without DRAGGING IT OFF THE panel: how to execute WITH keyboard / hotkey combination ALONE? NO MOUSE OR TOUCH PAD. Keyboard alone perhs with window key combination? Possible? Thanks so much. Appreciate it.
- (2017-02-27, v:1.8) Michael Fryar: Ctrl+Shift+7 and Ctrl+Shift+8
ctrl+shift+7 and ctrl+shift+8 are reserved shortcuts to create numbered lists and bulleted lists in Google Inbox so it would be nice to have the ability to disable these shortcuts for reordering.
- (2017-01-25, v:1.8) Very close, but has a few flaws that make it not super useful for me
This is exactly the type of functionality I need but unfortunately it's missing a few things that would make it perfect: 1) It doesn't appear to work consistently when the active tab is a Google Doc or Sheet. 2) It steals shortcut keys that I really like (example: gmail on Windows binds control + shift + 8 to add bullets). Would be wonderful if extension allowed to customize key combinations. 3) This requires several Chrome permissions when the extension description says it is permissions free.

Ctrl+Shift+PgUp/PgDn does not work for: 1. Viewing source 2. Viewing chrome webstore (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions)
