How to copy URL of all open tabs in Chrome


Internet searches often lead to dozens of open tabs. And in the case of research papers, that means opening each tab, copying the link, and adding it to a reference document that you’ll insert at the end of a document later. But there is a better way.

Instead of keeping them in tabs, we’re going to use a little bookmark hack to get a list of all the URLs in each tab you’ve opened. After saving these tabs as bookmarks, we will use a Chrome feature that allows us to copy the URLs of all bookmarks in a folder.

Then all we have to do is paste them into a text editor for later use. Once we don’t need them anymore, we can just delete the folder they were in and erase them from our bookmarks.
