How to Open Multiple Links with a Single Click in Google Chrome?

- You will now be able to see the bookmark folder you just created in the bookmarks bar.
Step 2- One-Click to Open All Websites
- Right-click the bookmark folder situated in the top bar.
- Click on “Open all” to open all the websites with just one click.
- You could also tap on “Open all in new tab” if you wish to open them in a separate window.
2. You can use Desktop Shortcut to Open Multiple Tabs
You also have the ability to manually create an executable shortcut file, tapping which will automatically open all the websites you want. This is a handy way for you to open multiple tabs with just a single-click desktop shortcut on Chrome or any browser.
Step 1: Open the Start menu on your PC, then search for Notepad to open it.
Step 2: Alternatively, you can press the Windows + R keys, type notepad, then press Enter to open it.
Step 3: After the Notepad opens, paste the following command with links to the websites you wish to open:
start chrome https://www.google.com
start chrome https://www.twitter.com
start chrome http://www.halfofthe.com/
You can replace the websites of your choice in the above command, if you are using Microsoft Edge, you can replace the word “chrome” with “Microsoft-edge.”
Step 4: Then, tap on File > Save as
Step 5: Write the file name with a .bat extension, for example, Shortcut.bat. Then, save it at some easily accessible place, say, a desktop.
Step 6: The file will then be saved as a bat shortcut file.
When you tap on this file it will automatically open all the websites in different tabs on your Chrome browser. You can always edit this file with notepad to change links or you can add even more websites.
3. You can use third-Party Chrome Extensions
There are several third-party extensions that let you open multiple websites with a single click in Chrome. An example of such an extension is Open Multiple URLs which takes a list of web pages in plain-text format, then opens them all in new tabs.
You need to install the Open Multiple URLs extension from Chrome Web Store.
After it is installed, tap the extension icon at the top right. If you can’t see it? Tap on the Extensions button.
Paste all the website URLs you wish to open.
Then, check the Preserve input box. This will make sure that the copied links stay here.
Then, click on Open URLs.
Whenever you wish to open all the websites at once, tap on the extension, then click on Open URLs. Doing so will open all the website links in new tabs simultaneously, all with just a single click.
