Open the current tab as a popup window.

Description from store Visit https://ht0.de/open-as-popup.html for more details about Open-as-Popup. This is a really simple extension for the Google Chrome browser. It adds a button to the toolbar, a context menu entry and a keyboard shortcut that allows you to move a tab to a new popup window. A popup window is a window without the navigation and the tab bar, so it will use much less vertical space. Because there is no toolbar visible inside a popup window, you need to use the context menu or the keyboard shortcut to move it back to a normal window if you want to. It will then try to attach it back to the window it earlier was detached from, and if this fails, for example because the window was meanwhile closed, it will attach it to the last focused window.

  • (2023-05-16) Alan Gibbons: Works beautifully! Allows me to maximize space on two monitors for two spreadsheets. LIFE SAVER!
  • (2023-04-27) Pavel Kovalkov: Excellent, Thank you!
  • (2023-02-13) Daniel Zaretsky: serves a purpose, works, gets 5 stars from me.
  • (2023-02-04) helen poptop: I use this extention all the time and simply love it. Great to manage side chats and stuff!
  • (2022-12-21) Brian Neate: I use the fantastic extension every day! It would be great to have an option to open certain urls (url regex patterns) in popup windows since I usually use this for meeting invites and need to click the open tab as popup button every time.
  • (2022-12-08) K L: Thank you! I just set the shortcut. No doubt this will be a go to extension for me, from here on out.
  • (2022-11-30) Scott Crunkleton: Simple, does what exactly what it says and it does it well. Pair it with some "always-on-top" desktop environment tooling, and you have a great picture-in-picture solution for watching videos/movies/etc while doing other stuff.
  • (2022-11-15) Chris A: Does exactly what it says it does. It opens the window you're viewing in a popup window. This effectively removes the tabs and the navigation bar, making my Jupyter Notebook appear much cleaner. Thanks Dev! Note: In my case, after installing this extension, the toolbar button which launches the extension didn't show in the toolbar. If that happens to you, click the puzzle-piece icon in the toolbar to open settings and click on the thumb tack icon next to the name of the extension.
  • (2022-11-01) Glen Coelho: i wanted to remove the title bar on top or reduce its size, so this was not for me
  • (2022-10-23) Artem Shiyanov: I was searching for it for years!))) Finally, I have + 10% of my vertical space back! Damn needed if you on a laptop.
  • (2022-08-21) Iasonas Taoukis: Was looking for this kind of extension for months, finally found it and I am more than happy to find it. Excellent work, thank you very much.
  • (2022-05-25) Sílvia Elisabeth Romero García: Es justo lo que necesitaba cuando ni siquiera sabía que podría llegar a necesitarlo, wow.
  • (2022-05-04) Ali Demirci: This extension is perfect!
  • (2022-02-07) Agnieszka Gorecka: This is brilliant!! Thank you!
  • (2021-10-11) Sora Liu: Awesome!
  • (2021-06-21) Tim Portener: Extremely useful. Really simple and it just works. This can be done with simple chrome command too. However, I would love a option for the top bar with title name/exit button to be something that only shows in the window when mouse is hovering/moving in window, this way it would create 100% borderless windows. Perfect for playing media. It should be possible to code. 4,9/5 stars, cant wait to use this more.
  • (2021-05-15) David M. Brown: It's a good addon. I can't see how to simply close the pop-up box. There doesn't seem to be an X in the corner that I can click on. Is converting the pop-up to a standard web page and then closing the page my only option?
  • (2021-05-08) Jamie Murdock: Wonderful! Simple! My newest friend! Keeps me from adding tabs to Gmail and Calendar, windows I want represented by it's separate taskbar icon among my many open windows. Glad you offered PayPal for my $10 of appreciation!
  • (2021-04-03) Tyrand: Love it. I mainly use to put pop-ups back into the main window. Has never not worked.
  • (2021-03-05) Newtomic: Cool extension, but I ultimately use the "--app" command in the shortcuts for the sites I want to open this way, so not much use nowadays.
  • (2021-02-23) Razi Hussain: good
  • (2021-02-13) Aarón Rodríguez: Gracias, con esto y con Youtube Windowed Fullscreen tengo más espacio para ver cosas y no la maldita barra de direcciones
  • (2021-01-23) Christian Walde (Mithaldu): straightup the most useful chrome extention i ever installed
  • (2020-12-28) Jelmer Visser: does exactly what i was looking for and clean and simple ui
  • (2020-11-26) Emre MUTLU: Wow... Absulutely life changer... Especially if you are trying to use using multiple windows fitted in one screen.
  • (2020-10-19) Marcel de Quadros Rodrigues dos Santos: Exatamente o que eu precisava. Ótima! Para ficar ainda melhor, poderiam adicionar uma opção pra definir um tamanho padrão para a pop up.
  • (2020-10-12) Moon Wolfy: Rock on, changes my entire way I can lay out my screens for my system! Thank you so much!
  • (2020-09-17) bottledwottle: I use this to share my screen with friends on Discord. It's perfect because now I can focus on just the contents of the page. Love it.
  • (2020-07-31) Aaron Sadler: Very helpful for documentation/screen capture. Thank you.
  • (2020-07-25) Dev Tyagi: Lovely
  • (2020-07-18) Matt Szmaida: Beautiful and functional. Removing the omnibox with a hotkey helps my monkey mind stay on task.
  • (2020-04-10) Richard Harvey: Did the job perfectly!
  • (2020-04-06) He llo: WWonderful plugin! Love it. but when it was quited, the position of the window is random, plz fix it. Thx.
  • (2020-02-04) Mark K: You are a heavenly saint from the heavens. You should be immediately, as of right now, beatified, canonized and printed on money around the world. You should be revered, hallowed and adored. And the story of your life should be taught to every kid in school, after it is sung to them in their infancy by their parents as a lullaby. If there is anything to be added, it's that it doesn't currently work with the new Chromium Edge. Yet it does work perfectly in Brave and Chrome. Again, thank you ever so much.
  • (2020-01-29) Anzelika Jerofenko: Wonderful! I use it to watch Udemy course videos and end up having more vertical screen space for my coding windows :)
  • (2020-01-06) Taylor Anderson: Great extension! Thank you!
  • (2019-12-23) Ovy Ron: Thanks, works great! The only problem is how it's so hard to find for what I use it for, so hopefully adding these terms here will help people find it: "How to hide chrome omnibox" "how to hide chrome address bar" "how to hide chrome tabs" "how to hide chrome url bar" "enabling chrome compact mode" "enable chrome presentation mode" "chrome full screen without maximizing" "chrome chromeless window" "disable chrome clutter" "chrome window with just borders." This extension should be a top result!
  • (2019-12-01) Maurizio Delmonte: top, fa quel che promette, permettendo di aprire URL in finestre come popup, mettendo le finestre a tutto schermo si nasconde qualsiasi controllo esterno alla pagina.
  • (2019-10-21) Ben Witmer: So simple its perfect
  • (2019-10-07) Brian Eagle: For a long time I've been using Vivaldi to do this same thing because it's much more flexible and Chrome's tabs and address bar are so big and clunky with extra unused space on top of that for some reason. Now having this extension in Chrome has just cut out some extra steps for me and it's great! Thank you!
  • (2019-08-28) Adan M: Only thing missing is Always stay on top feature. Thankfully I have this with AHK.
  • (2019-07-24) Anders R Ese: Thank you for making this <3
  • (2019-06-27) Jiahui Chen: just what i need
  • (2019-06-26) Akul __: Very useful. Exactly what I needed.
  • (2019-06-26) Mario Chapa: This is awesome stuff. For the most part I use Vivaldi which has a setting to hide the UI. But there are couple of things that its better when I do it in chrome, so this extension lets me have true full screen mode, as it hides the tab bar and address bar, those things eat up a considerable portion of the screen's real state. Simple and beautiful extension.
  • (2019-06-04) Alex Brown: I love this extension. I makes Google apps feel like they are standalone. 6/5 ⭐

    Great functionality! I'm really liking the adjustable keyboard shortcut too! However, I think the icon can be improved. There are some white pixels bleeding at the edge and it shows up quite a bit on a dark taskbar.

    Please add the following to fix incognito mode. chrome.windows.create({ tabId: tab.id, type: "popup", incognito: tab.incognito //this is missing });
  • (2018-03-05, v: Keyboard shortcut
    I've set up a keyboard shortcut to activate the extension but the ability to de-activate the extension would be great too. i.e. return the window back to normal.
  • (2018-03-03, v: Eddie W: Incognito mode
    Hi, it does not open for me in Incognito mode. I have enabled the extension for Incognito in my Chrome Dev (latest version). But nothing happens when I click the button. It works fine in non-incognito mode.
  • (2017-12-29, v: Rey: Tab stuck as pop-out window
    I can't find any way of moving a tab back into another window. Apparently there was a "show as tab" option in the menu as of 2016, but I don't see it now. It severely limits the utility of this extension for it to be one-way.
