Image from store AutoControl: Keyboard shortcut, Mouse gesture
Description from store   ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl is a comprehensive solution to fully customize the way you control your browser using keyboard, mouse and joysticks. This is the only shortcut manager that can redefine and disable ALL factory keyboard and mouse shortcuts in Chrome. This is the only shortcut manager that works on ALL browser tabs. None of this is possible with regular Chrome extensions. AutoControl IS NOT A REGULAR EXTENSION. AutoControl currently works on Windows operating systems only. If you are still interested, read on to learn why AutoControl is different. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl is a native extension ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl brings out the power of Chrome's native extensibility to gain essential advantages over regular extensions: ✔ It can customize or disable ALL browser shortcuts, even those prohibited to regular extensions, such as Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+ScrollWheel, and any other. ✔ Keyboard shortcuts and gestures work on ALL tabs, be it the New Tab Page, extension pages, settings pages, protected pages, PDF documents, you name it. ✔ It doesn't inject code into every page you visit, thus leaving their functionality intact, which avoids sluggish pages and conserves CPU and memory. ✔ Keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures are implemented natively, which makes them respond instantly at all times.

PERIOD. ➭ Works in incognito windows when "Allow in Incognito" option is ON. ➭ Shortcuts support wildcards to allow or disallow extra keys. ➭ A shortcut may be any combination of keyboard keys, mouse buttons, joystick buttons and mouse gestures. ➭ Keyboard shortcuts can have multiple steps. http://rb.gy/dve714 ➭ Supports address bar shortcuts. http://rb.gy/rumdyb ➭ Supports hover-sensitive shortcuts and gestures. http://rb.gy/s8dfnc ➭ Keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures can work even when the browser is unfocused or closed. ➭ Use keyboard shortcuts and gestures to open any bookmark/folder. ➭ You can restrict shortcuts and gestures to specific websites. ➭ Create custom toolbar buttons to perform any desired action. http://rb.gy/vhxaoa ➭ Create custom menus with your open tabs, closed tabs, bookmarks, bookmark folders and more. http://rb.gy/vfzp8u ➭ Menus can display tab thumbnail previews. http://rb.gy/wdjkus ➭ Supports a wide variety of actions: Tab actions, Window actions, Bookmark actions, Clipboard actions and more. ➭ Actions can be applied to one or more tabs and windows simultaneously. ➭ Actions are composable, they may be simple or complex. http://rb.gy/qlotmo ➭ Provides a scripting API and script editor that allows to build your own custom actions. http://rb.gy/cdolbe ➭ Can synchronize your settings across different profiles on the same computer or the same profile across different computers. ➭ Works entirely offline. No need for an internet connection.

  • (2023-09-07) Gábor Légrády: Please add hide/show bookmarks bar. Thanks.
  • (2023-08-13) Steve Brazzell: Kudos! I'll be sending a donation and I urge others to do the same. I'm a huge Autohotkey user and have never been able to figure out how to manipulate tabs. The MRU functionality (or even last tab, for God's sake!) is worth the price of admission, but this extension is top notch, well thought-out, and shows a passionate developer who loves what he does.
  • (2023-08-13) ARatQuiRit: Amazing, stuffed with features possibilities ! I really miss it when using Mozilla…
  • (2023-06-29) Lisa Lavandula: Truly awesome extension to enable all kinds of shortcuts using the keyboard, mouse, and even joystick. I LOVE how it lets you specify a shortcut for searching a certain site or even part of a site for something. I kinda wish they would let you list more shortcuts you've created on one page, but this is still an awesome app that makes browsing a LOT more convenient. Definitely recommend.
  • (2023-06-23) Mahmod Ashraf: there are 2 features that don't work now : 1- Mouse: Over Browser tab 2 - Apply to: Hovered tab
  • (2023-06-05) George-Laurențiu Vasilache: Extremely well made and very helpful! Thank you, developer!
  • (2023-06-02) Henry Ma: Probably the best mouse gesture extension. But there's an issue with mouse wheel scroll. When I use Mouse Right Button + Wheel to switch to left/right tab, it always displays the right-click menu. It's very annoying. Browsers like CentBrowser doesn't have this issue. Also the extension stops working now and then, I have to do emergency repair to fix this. And it told me that Play/Pause key is pressed, which is not. Hope you can get these fixed and then it's absolutely the best.
  • (2023-05-11) Madina Umahanova: While it works well for windows, need one for mac!
  • (2023-05-07) James Goodrich: This thing is incredible. First, let's just say I've had a rough experience with AutoHotkey. I know this is mostly because of its utterly ridiculous, universal power and flexibility, and my poor coding skills, but still. In comparison, this has a very simple, easy to use interface, especially considering that it can do like 95% of what I've even thought of wanting (at time of review). Also very nice: having a lot of help built-in and thoughtfully only displayed when I need it, instead of needing to sift through a huge pile of documentation whenever I want to look something up. It would be nice to be able to check if another tab has a particular URL open to use as a condition. This might very well not be technically possible, or I simply haven't found out how to do this. Also I kind of wish I could prevent the "support the project" button on the left from very occasionally wiggling and distracting me if I leave it open on another monitor, lol. Anyway, this is great and I extremely cannot recommend it enough. Ironically, finding out all the stuff I can do with this has inspired me to give AHK another chance to see what I can do outside of chrome (once I feel like reading a ton of documentation and fiddling with things).
  • (2023-04-18) SenusSuns (Hydracoil): This extension has been a life-saver for me and I absolutely love it, It's highly customizable and makes navigating my browser so much easier. There is just 1 fatal flaw and I'm not sure if it's a problem with the extension or chrome itself but for some reason all the shortcuts I create usually stop working so If I make for example the 5th or 4th mouse button go to the left and right tab it will work for a little bit but since the 5th and 4th mouse button is also used as a back and forward button it will suddenly start functioning like a forward and back button instead of completely overwriting it. Everytime I restart my computer it works just fine but then it stops working again and I hate having to restart my computer everytime I want to use this extension. I hope there is a fix because it's very frustrating to deal with.
  • (2023-03-27) PeaceBy Jesus: If for nothing else than enabling ctrl+tab to toggle btwn most recently accessed tabs - which common sense option is not even present in Chrome (unlike Firefox) - then this thoughtful extension would warrant 5 stars. However I cannot seem to enable this otherwise welcome extension. .

  • (2023-03-02) Md Intekhabul Hafiz: Awesome!... I can now set double CTRL as tab switch.
  • (2023-02-12) F A: Hi there! hope you are well. I have used your extension in slimjet with no probs and its very smooth and quick. However, I recently moved to "Vivaldi browser" and installed your extension. problem I have noticed so far is 1) Switch tabs when scrolling over the tab strip is not working. I followed your instructions on your official webpage so that both shortcuts must have a Mouse-over condition set to Browser tab, as shown in your picture. However it does not recognise the condition "Browser tab" to switch tabs (basically no tab switching occurs). I tried the various other options and Tab switching will work if I select Mouse-over condition set to "web page" ( meaning anywhere on the web page i use my mouse wheel it will start switching tabs which is not what i want as i cant use the wheel to scroll down a page anymore ) 2) the open link URL trigger does not work either when I hover mouse pointer over a URL (it works fine in slimjet browser). when i point my mouse over a URL link such as google result or YouTube search result (I can see the link URL address showing at the bottom of Vivaldi browser ) and set a mouse gesture along with the action "open link URL" , nothing happens kindly help regards OLD REVIEW BELOW I feel this is a very powerful app which is probably why there are things i have not discovered yet. it would be nice if there was a page where people shared their shortcuts to give othjer people ideas how to use it. so my main QUESTION please. I was using another mouse gesture extension which is great but the rocker gesture is not smooth and i would prefer to use this extension exclusively. However with that extension, there is a great feature which is by holding my mouse button and selecting any text on a webpage, i can then set a mouse trigger gesture to automatically search a website for what i highlighted. For example im browsing the web and I see an item on that webpage that I would like to find on amazon. So I highlight it with my mouse and do a mouse gesture (in the shape of an "a" for amazon in this case) and it will immediately open the amazon search webpage with results for what i highlighted all in one step (or it could set to search any page like ebay or reddit or google search search results etc). so for example i highlight the word pencil on a webpage, then do my trigger gesture and it opens https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=PENCIL. is there a way to search what i highlighted in one step with this extension please? Another question please - is it possible to set a trigger gesture to cause action of a keyboard press (for example my trigger is when i press a keyboard button the action is to output alt+shift+H) Finally - There is something that really bugs me about chrome that there is no extension to fix. whenever i save a bookmark it goes to the bottom of my bookmarks bar. as i have a lot of bookmarks i have to scroll all the way to the end. I would love an option to save a bookmark with a trigger gesture and it goes to the most left hand side of my bookmarks tab so i can see it straightaway rather than the default end of the list. I can not believe there is not one extension that does this because firefox has this great extension called "Default Bookmark Folder" which lets you choose to add the new bookmarks to the top or the bottom of the selected folder and with one click too. Many thanks kind regards

  • (2023-02-02) Xaoo BBX: Everything seems fine but sometimes it closes 2 tabs instead of one on click. Not sure why.
  • (2023-01-24) Majken Villiger: Are you planning on making a version of this extension for Mac. A huge proportion of users have google chrome on mac. Would be nice to have a work around instead of just having no option for mac.
  • (2022-12-30) ekarron: Every now and then it stops working until I disable and re-enable the extension, which is very inconvenient [Windows 11, Chrome Version 108.0.5359.125] I can't put my finger on exactly when it stops working, but I tried to disable all other extensions so I know there is no conflection and no luck. When it works, it's the BEST! and the customization is on another level.
  • (2022-12-19) Tom Kemmish: Can't praise this enough lets you customize the hot keys to trigger, page/tab actions, and keyboard/mouse inputs. This works soooo good for repetitive tasks. Works much better than the various "auto clicker" extensions I tried. The interface for creating the automation actions is easy to understand and intuitive. I was able to figure out how to automate mouse clicks at specific locations in just a couple minutes
  • (2022-12-04) Jose Montoya: Funciona excelente y por su forma tiene más capacidades que el resto que hacen lo mismo, pero la interfaz para agregar gestos es muy poco intuitiva, es realmente mala, sobre diseñada, podría ser mucho mas simple, y también podría traer los gestos más comunes y ya estandarizados por defecto, con eso sería perfecta

  • (2022-10-25) Some User: The native component is detected as a Virus at Virus Total. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/994e14d2bb306607c158c6799e0661c90ee1a480378aca969c9397e4712a4c38/details
  • (2022-10-22) Frank Utne: Why is there no warning that this extension cannot be used on Macs?! Sounds like a great extension. It's NOT! After installing it on my Mac, I get this page that says I need to install the 'native component'. When I click the button, I get: We are sorry, your operating system is currently not supported. At the moment, AutoControl is supported on: Windows XP Windows Vista Windows 7 Windows 8 Windows 10 Read the FAQ to learn why this limitation exists. Try installing anyway It's not bad enough that I have to install some unknown software that I can't check with VirusTotal but it is WINDOWS ONLY and I am invited to install it anyway? I don't want to think about what that might do. Nothing good, that's for sure.
  • (2022-10-20) 李匿名: I propose there be an emergency keyboard shortcut to delete the concerning shortcut where the left mouse button as a trigger is accidentally set as to perform no action. I will change my rating to 5 as soon as this proposal is implemented.
  • (2022-10-15) 田野: Very good! I can say this is the best choice of its kind! Thanks to the great developers!
  • (2022-10-09) Mark Palmos: LOVE this. Very well done, so useful, every day.
  • (2022-03-20) Emre Ç.: I hope you see this. I love the app, it makes everything super easy, and I loved especially the gui you created to create actions. I was thinking maybe you can create a spinoff from this app to create AutoHotkey scrips. There is something similar on the internet (ahkgen), but the way this extension captures user input is on another level. What I am saying is you should think about creating a webapp that creates AHK scripts from the input capturing of this app. Otherwise this is great:)

  • (2022-03-17) J M: This is one of the most versatile and robust extensions ever. I am forever grateful for the owners' work on this! Has revolutionized the way I operate. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Even if you're not scripting, the basic features are so helpful. THANKS!

  • (2022-03-06) benjamin957957: This beats other competitors. Has exactly the features that I need: to disable the spacebar key for web players. Other extensions could only stop the the spacebar key from scrolling the page down, but not web players. I think it's because this extension has the native application. Thank you for making this extension. I have yet to learn all that it does. Looks like I can use it for many other things.
  • (2022-03-04) Malcolm Smith: The only way I've found to disable Chrome's annoying middle click scroll feature. To do this, add an action mapping the middle button to Ctrl + Left Btn when the mouse is over a webpage. Screenshot: https://i.snipboard.io/IshGuT.jpg
  • (2022-02-28) Jeff State: This extension seems like the one I've been searching for, but I'm not seeing the item that I need for a trigger. My first task is to hover over a link, and then press CTRL+C, in order to copy a link. This replaces the need for drilling down on the link with right-clicking. From what I can see this would be a multistep trigger, but the hover condition isn't present in the list of available triggers. Did that trigger get called by a different name? That's the only star that is missing from my review. Otherwise, it's a 5-star product, so I'll update if I find or am advised on that hover trigger being present.
  • (2022-02-23) Mehul: It will be better if you change your extension's name and suffix it with [only windows os]
  • (2022-02-22) 一字: 非常棒,唯一一个可以满足我设置的鼠标手势插件,并且任何页面都有作用!
  • (2022-02-19) DIY Dylan: I was astounded that Chrome did not have this functionality built in and usually it's a headache to find an extension that actually works properly but this extension so far has been FANTASTIC. The UI is slick, efficient and very intuitive without any clutter, and it has all the functionality I could ever hope for! The only thing I can't seem to find is a way to use pause and next track/previous track media hotkeys :(
  • (2022-02-13) Daniel Remenyi: I like it because fully programable. but I`ve found a bug. When I programmed a keyboard key to do something, specifically if I press ''N'' Activate Netflix tab. So sometimes when the text cursor is active it forces to switch to Netflix anyway but it has a condition to not trigger when a text cursor is on. (On-unchecked,Omnibox-unchecked,Off-Checked) Please fix it or help me if I made a mistake.
  • (2022-01-24) Gábor Klement: Can I make a shortcut for "Save Image As" somehow?

  • (2022-01-21) Chukwudum Okeke: Fantastic work. I will give 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ when I figure out how to move item mark with the mouse wheel in the tab menu with thumbnail previews. Using AHK I do this with Alt-Tab task switcher and middle mouse wheel and button to select program. edit: Almost Done! you have my 5 stars! edit: DONE!

  • (2022-03-14, v:2022.3.4) raj palan: Keep running in the background
    Hi, I'm using autocontrol to remap keys system wide but need to keep it running in the background to do so. The problem is that I have multiple windows with multiple tabs open at all times. To close the multiple windows and restore them on startup, I need to use the exit option from the context menu. But this exits the autocontrol app running in the background as well. Any way to circumvent this problem? Is there any way the native component can function on its own without needing to keep chrome running in the background? Thanks

    When I use "Emergency Repair" it works well again for a few seconds. Then it goes back to not being able to drag tabs around, or even the browser window itself. It's just locked. On top, I use ShareMouse to control two computers from the keyboard/mouse of one of them, and when AutoControl is on, I can move the mouse cursor to the other computer, but whatever clicks or scrolls will still be executed on the main machine. Interestingly, when I minimize Chrome (even with AutoControl enabled) the issue with ShareMouse disappears. So thanks for any insight so I can get back to full power with AC turned on :)

  • (2022-01-18, v:2021.12.8) Va no: Page scrolls down when a link opened in a new tab
    There is seems to be some kind of conflict with Tabs+ extension https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/tabs/peomnfimpcpglgijgbajhknfngmnbanm (in latest Edge and Chrome) When both extensions enabled (with default settings) clicking a link that opens a new tab will scroll the page down. (simple test page: https://jsfiddle.net/a6j1n2o5/ ) If either of the extensions disabled, there is no problem. So far I narrowed the issue down to background.js of Tabs+ where chrome.tabs.onCreated.addListener event listener on line 285 it activates previous tab. This somehow affects AC (I'm pretty certain AC does the scrolling). If I delay chrome.tabs.update(prevTab.id, {active: true}); for 15+ms it seems fixes the issue.

Why? 2. What I want is a Tilde button (no shortcut, just one button) to give me -> Paste, ENTER, next tab. How do I do that? Thanks!

  • (2022-01-07, v:2021.12.8) Yu Yuphoria: Chrome steal focus when switching to previous tab action
    I have a Alt + z (also tried Alt + a) for "Switch to Previous Tabs" action. This works but Chrome puts the focus on the 3 vertical dots icon aka “more vertical” icon menu (towards the top-right) which ditches the whole experience. I then have to hit "Escape" remove focus of that icon. Is there a way to focus the pages content with this action, rather than chrome hijacking the focus to the vertical 3 dots, like via extra script or any other way?? FYI, Chrome actually has a shortcut for opening the 3 vertical dots menu, Ctrl + F (try it), so why the f..., chrome needs extra attention (lol).

  • (2021-12-22, v:2021.12.8) sss: How / is it possible to do this?
    Greetings, great program, but I have questions. I've been using another browser for a long time and I'm very used to some things, but I still don't understand if I can do them through your extension in chrome. 1.When you hover a specific tab, you can close it with the right mouse click. 2.When you hover over a specific tab, it automatically becomes active. (that is, I do not want to click on the tab so that it becomes active, so that just hovering over it would be enough). *a specific tab - I do not mean a specific address, but simply the fact that I select a specific tab from those that are open. Thanks in advance for your reply and sorry for my bad english :)

  • (2021-12-13, v:2021.12.8) Kousuke Sano: BACK action doesn't work properly after openURL() in RUN SCRIPT
    BACK action sometimes doesn't work properly after RUNning SCRIPT with openURL. Say: let links = document.getElementsByTagName('link'); let l = links.length; for (var i = 0; i < l; i++) { if (links[i].rel == 'next') { ACtl.openURL(links[i].href, '#currentTab'); return; } } Browser history looks updated improperly within openURL; you can see back arrow of the Chrome history is still grayed out. When you click another link (so browser adds another entry on the history) after this occurs, the entry for openURL should silently appear on the history; you can see that by right-clicking the back arrow. So there may be some problem around updating history#.
  • (2021-12-06, v:2021.9.4) Dharma Jannyter: Windows 10 notification center slow-down after long use.
    When using AutoControl, then after a while the notification center slide-in of Windows 10 begins to lag more and more. The worst will then be when I clear all items from the notification center, because the mouse will slow down as if the CPU is working 100% for a few seconds. This does not happen if I have ActionControl disabled from the start. AutoControl somehow seems to react to the notification center slide-in, because sometimes after opening the notification center the gesture-arrows sometimes stay on screen afterwards. Only opening the notification center again clears those stuck gesture-arrows. So it seems that AutoControl somehow interacts with the notification center which slows the latter down after some time, especially after regularly receiving notifications and clearing them from time to time. Even killing the AutoControl process and letting it restart doesn't fix this issue. Only a reboot fixes this. Would be nice if the AutoControl native component could somehow ignore the notification center completely.

  • (2021-12-03, v:2021.9.4) Douglas Lima: Event URL not working
    I don't know if I'm doing this wrong or it's a bug, but in this example the action is never trigered: https://snipboard.io/TvACui.jpg I was expecting the audio to play whenever a tab that is not youtube starts playing audio, whether it's active or not, but doesn't work in any way.
  • (2021-12-02, v:2021.9.4) Douglas Lima: Find text in clipboard
    Now that it has the Clipboard Changes event, it would be nice to have a trigger condition that looks for certain text in the clipboard, the same way the url condition works. This would allow for a very easy way to trigger the action by inserting a specific string in the clipboard with AutoHotKey or other actions of AutoControl.

  • (2021-12-01, v:2021.9.4) Douglas Lima: More Favorites
    Hello. Would it be possible to have more favorite lists? I'm doing a lot of stuff with your extension and having only 5 lists is very constricting because actions might interfere with each other. If we could have an option to add more lists and even name them would be amazing.
  • (2021-11-28, v:2021.9.4) Kenny D: Middle click bookmark bar links to open in new tab
    I got your app specifically just to remove auto scroll function from middle mouse click, but this seems to make me have to customize every other possible function of the middle mouse button. I have to tell it to do nothing first unless its hovering over a link or tab or auto scroll works again, then set middle click to close tabs like default or it does nothing, and also set it to open links in new tab on middle click again, and now I can't middle click the links on the "bookmarks bar" just below the URL toolbar and there seems to be no option to hover over bookmark bar links and middle click them. Also, at one point I was able to get your extension to cause my mouse to not work properly OUTSIDE of Chrome, like right clicking stops working until I fool with your extension again, that seems jacked up. If there is a simple way to prevent mouse from middle click auto scroll and do NOTHING else to the functionality of middle click without adding a bunch of extra stuff, lemme know!
  • (2021-11-25, v:2021.9.4) starboy Richards: auto control suggested fixes
    what i had been really is i Love such Amazingly Great/beautiful work hmm well ya know i clearly/obviously Like it by now its very clear and to keep it up also if it Had macros + A voice control feature added To it id say it would very much Become 100% completed nah it wont be perfect Like all things which nothing is though can surely be good enough for any/every 1 That is Looking for anything in the shortcut category im sure it is the Ultimate shortcut extension ive tried 98% by now ive written many down so when i eventually got a computer id have something to switch pages/tabs open urls or with finger/stylus-pen/Mouse gesture with maybe using Touchscreen fn Key doesnt work atm i wish and a clipboard option using either when a text/link/word is Highlight like in blue which is default for all devices it auto sends it into a clipboard List a clipboard Like some lg phones/Tablets and samsuns maybe others but i only used them and i knows them Alone or just HighLight and copy then it goes to ac for backup/syncing getting back your past copied text untill deleted even asigning buttons to em so when ever you click a text box and press whatever button assigned a specific text goes into the box if its focused macros i think should be holding down a button and releasing it or 2 options when released or just plainly record whatever action you wanna record within your chrome browser

  • (2021-11-09, v:2021.9.4) Marek Matras: Native Component Extension, significant CPU load
    Hi! I have started to use AutoControl to improve navigation using keyboard. Custom shortcuts features offered by this extension clearly outperforms others :) I have noticed significant CPU consumption coming from Native Component Extension that randomly hangs for minutes. Win10 reports that as 20-25%, so full load of single CPU core in my case. Is it normal behaviour? If not - how to perform root cause analysis and configuration changes to finally lower CPU load?

  • (2021-10-16, v:2021.9.4) Douglas Lima: Detect browser profile
    Hello. Is it possible for an action to only run on a certain browser profile? I use a lot of profiles and I have AutoControl configs synced between most of them and I use the Tab Modifier extension to add the name of the profile to the tab title, but it doesn't always work. Also, is it possible to rename a tab with AutoControl? Thanks for your time.
  • (2021-10-15, v:2021.9.4) ARatQuiRit: Video volume controls
    Hi there ! ____ Thanks much for the extension first, very very nice ! ____ I was craving the ability to control the volume with my mouse only on several website, wich I can do now thanks to you ! But, it would be even more practical for me if I could direclty control the player sound, not browser or speakers. Also, by verifying my mouse is over the player, I could only use the scroll wheel and get rid of the right clic trigger. Can I do that and just missed how ? I searched but I sometimes miss the obvious… Or maybe is there something stoping that feature from being possible ? I know some extention enable its for some website/players.____ In any case, thanks again ! As I said, already extremly handy as it is ! Thanks much !
  • (2021-10-11, v:2021.9.4) Joe Glines: connecting to AutoControl from other programs
    Thank you for your work! I spent years using AutoHotkey to automate IE via a COM object. Unfortantely IE is going away and Chrome / Edge do not have COM objects. I was hoping to be able to, programatically, connect to AutoControl to help automate webscraping. I can see how I could leverage the clipboard to pass one value however I'd like to be able to pass multiple variables to AutoControl. I suppose I could concatenate them and then parse them with JavaScript but was hoping there was a "sexier" option available. Is there a way I can use another program to define variables that would be used in my JavaScript that AutoControl is submitting? Thank you! Joe Glines [email protected]
  • (2021-10-10, v:2021.9.4) Ricardo Salta: Actions affecting wrong window
    When I am using a dual monitor setup, and I want to close a tab with a mouse gesture, if the window is not actually focused, because the one focused is the one on the other monitor... what happens is that the tab closed is on the other monitor... but, the arrows showing the gestures are being detected, are shown in the tab which I actually meant to close. Thanks for your attention
