If you always use the same web services, for example Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Blackboard, etc…, you can make those tabs take up less space by pinning them. To do this, right click on the tab you want pinned and click “Pin Tab”. It’s that easy This shrinks the tabs down to save room in your browser. This also prevents the tabs from being accidentally exited as their is no “x” to close the tabs. This must be done by right clicking and closing them. These pins will also open the next time that you load your browser for quick access to these services. I keep my email, calendar and Google Plus open all the time. Give it a try.
