Open a lot of tabs in Chrome? Is your computer sluggish? Here’s what you can do

If you are an internet surfer and open a ton of tabs, you may notice that your computer has become sluggish.   Many times this can be from using a lot of memory usage (caused by a website) in Chrome.  Here’s what you can do if you don’t want to lose where you are at.

Hit the Shift + Esc key.


This will bring up the information about each tab in Chrome.   See which tab is using the most memory and highlight it.  Click on End Process. Close the process window.

You can now use the history (Ctrl + H) option to open the tab you closed if you want to go back to the website you closed.  This will often free up memory in Chrome.
