Chrome’s settings are opened in a new tab but if you tend to have a lot of tabs open and don’t want the settings to open on yet another tab, you can have the settings open in a new window instead.

To open the Chrome settings in a new window, we’re going to use a setting on the Chrome flags page. Enter the following text in Chrome’s address bar and press Enter.

chrome://flags/#enable-settings-window

01_entering_chrome_flags_command

The “Show settings in a window” flag is highlighted in yellow. Select “Enabled” from the drop-down list.

02_selecting_enabled

Click “Relaunch Now” at the bottom of the browser window.

03_clicking_relaunch_now

When Chrome opens, click the Chrome in the upper-right corner of the browser window and select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.

04_selecting_settings

The Settings screen now opens in a new window, preventing your rather full tab bar from getting even more crowded.

05_settings_window

If you don’t mind opening settings on a new tab sometimes, and you just need quick access to certain settings, you can make it quicker to open some of the settings by bookmarking them.
