Pin Thumbnails in Google Chrome

Friday, May 20th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

So, if you’re a Google Chrome user, then you’ve probably seen the nifty dashboard screen at one time or another. Among other options, it’s a place that shows you your most visited sites in thumbnails form for quick an easy access.

That being said, those thumbnails tend to shift around a bit as your browsing habits change. If you want to keep one up there permanently, though, it’s pretty easy. Just hold your mouse pointer over the thumbnail you want to keep and click the little pin icon.

This will “pin” the thumbnail so it doesn’t go anywhere!

Yep. It’s that easy!

    Unfortunately, they have disabled this feature. You can now only delete a formerly pinned thumbnail.
