I sent my cell phone for some repair. It was repaired and working fine. The settings have been changed a bit as the software had been upgraded. But lo and behold! the Chrome application has its tab vanished.
I can’t see my tabs. I would open a tab and the previous one would be gone. I was unable to switch between tabs.
Then I found that due to the upgrade tabs could not be switched from within the application but could be navigated between like you navigate between open apps. (But pressing and holding the little square below in the navigation area).
This was very unwelcome. I was uncomfortable and didn’t want to make this shift. I want my old way of navigating between the tabs. And I found a way to do that.
Below I have compiled a step by step process, with pictures to help you bring back your tabs.
