This simple organization tool puts all of your Chrome tabs together into one window with a single click. 

The new window has your tabs arranged in the same order your windows were, and makes the selected tab in your current window be the new selected tab, so you won't lose track of where your tabs were or what you were doing.

It has an option to include minimized windows.

It works great with Tab Scissors (,
 which splits your window into two convenient side-by-side windows, so that you can rearrange your tabs in groups.

Version 1.2 Update: You can now also perform a glue or cut using a shortcut specified on the chrome extensions page. Default is Alt+S to cut, Alt+G to glue, Alt+A to glue all (including minimized windows)

Risk impact

Tab Glue requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Tab Glue has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
