Auto Refresh Tabs in Chrome - Wepicker

Auto Refresh Tabs in Chrome? It is possible to receive new information or messages through reloading a webpage at a set interval. Despite the fact that our phones have more computational power than Apollo 11’s onboard computer (the rocket which landed on the Moon for the first time), we still do not have a native way to automatically refresh our browser tabs.

Although there is no way to automatically refresh the Chrome tabs on a set interval, but you will know how to do it by the end of this article.

Chrome Extension to Refresh Tabs Automatically

You can simply outsource the work to many developers by simply installing an extension. You can now take advantage of a great Chrome extension that will refresh your tabs whenever you open a new one.

Your computer’s desktop, Start Menu, or taskbar can be used to access the Chrome browser.

In the ‘search box’ present on the left sidebar of the page, type Page Refresher on chrome.google.com/webstore. Press Return on your keyboard to search.

Click the ‘Page Refresher’ link in the left-hand section of the window after that.

You may now add the extension to your browser by clicking on the ‘Add to Chrome’ button.

After pressing the ‘Add extension’ button, the overlay alert window will close.

Chrome will notify you that the extension has been added to your browser, as well as highlighting its location on the menu bar.

 

Auto-refresh Chrome Tabs with Page Refresher Extension

You now need to understand how the ‘Page Refresher’ extension works in order to fully utilize it.

Pin Page Refresher to Chrome’s menu bar

If you are unable to find the ‘Page Refresher’ in your menu bar after adding the extension, press the Extensions icon on your menu bar and select the ‘Pin’ icon located right next to the ‘Page Refresher’ option.

From now on, you’ll see the Page Refresher extension in the Chrome menu bar.

Specify the time interval for auto-refreshing the tab(s)

Page Refreshser allows you to set individual time intervals for auto-refreshing different tabs.

On the Chrome menu bar, click the ‘Page Refresher’ extension icon.

On the overlay window, click the ‘Choose tab for edit’ button to select your desired tab from the list of open tabs.

In the field adjacent to the ‘Refresh Interval’ field, enter the value (in seconds). Simply click the ‘Play’ icon to start auto-refreshing the selected tab, and that’s all there is to it, your page will now auto-update according to the time you have set.

Click on the desired tab from the list of open tabs that appears on the overlay menu in order to set an auto-refresh routine for another tab.

To set the refresh interval (in seconds), enter it in the textbox next to the field labeled ‘Refresh Interval’. This tab can also be set to a different time interval if you need to. To confirm, click the ‘Play button.

By repeating this process for each tab open in your Chrome browser, you can set various individual time intervals.

Remove an auto-refresh routine

A tab’s auto-refresh routine can be easily deleted.

A routine that has already been set for a tab can be deleted by clicking on the ‘Page Refresher’ extension icon on your Chrome menu bar.

Next, click the tab you want to turn off auto-refreshing for. On the overlay window, click the “Trash” icon.

Stopping the auto-refresh feature without affecting the page refresher

It is also possible to disable auto-refreshing of all tabs with Page Refresher without affecting the time intervals for each tab in Chrome.

You can do this by clicking the ‘Page Refresher’ extension icon in the Chrome menu bar.

In the top right corner of the overlay window, toggle the switch to the ‘Off’ position to pause the ‘Page Refresher’ extension and not lose your time interval settings.

That’s all you need to know about Chrome’s auto-refreshing feature.
