Browser Tabs – What Happens if You Don’t Close Tabs

What Happens if you don't close a tab

Does your Windows lag when you have too many tabs opened in your browser?

This is the case with many of us. The Windows freezes when the browser has some tabs opened. It becomes difficult to switch between tabs or the apps on your desktop. Ultimately, you end up wasting so much of your precious time on a daily basis.  

Just like we check our calendar or email regularly during the day, it seems convenient to keep the browser tabs open throughout instead of typing web addresses again later. Similarly, you cannot bookmark a dozen tabs daily and remain your tabs open. As a result, the system starts lagging and you face difficulty in getting your work done on time.

What Happens if You Don’t Close Tabs?

What happens if I don’t close my tab?

If you don’t close the browser tabs, every function on your PC starts becoming slower and slower. Your PC can manifest in different ways which include:

  • File conversion and saving documents take longer.
  • Program opens and closes slowly.
  • Heavy applications such as games and graphic apps stutter and delay.
  • The operating system takes too long to shut down.
  • File writing and window error messages start appearing on the screen.
  • Graphics take time to load and their frame rates start to drop.
  • Peripherals such as printers connected to your PC do not function properly.

If you are facing any of these issues due to a dozen tabs opened in your browser, you must look for some other way that saves your tabs and ensures the robust performance of your PC. 

Save the Tabs for Later!

If you are working on some important research and have opened some interesting websites and important articles in sorted form, you would definitely not close them with the fear of losing all of them. Unfortunately, if you leave the tabs open, the desktop apps start lagging. One way is to close the tabs and restore them manually through your browser settings whenever you need them. However, there is one smarter way of doing it!

Not only this, the app remembers the window positioning of your browser on the desktop screen and rearranges windows at the exact same position and window size.

Optimize your Desktop Performance 

SmartWindows is a smart solution to deal with the lagging issue of your desktop due to open tabs.

With SmartWindows you can create unlimited profiles and up to 6 displays. Name each profile according to your project and manage the work files and browser data in each profile separately.
