Last Update date : Nov 09. 2021

Please Note: The information on this page is for New Zealand products only. Sequences or settings will vary depending on location and/or where the product had been purchased. To be redirected to your local support page please click here.

The number of webpage tabs you can keep open at one time will depend on the device. ie. devices with higher specifications will be able to keep more pages open than lower specification devices.

 

If you have the maximum number of tabs open, you will not be able to open a new tab until one of the others is closed.

 

Please note: If you try to open a new tab while you have the maximum number of tabs open, this may cause the oldest opened tab to automatically close to create space. 

Note: This guide applies only for the Samsung "Internet" application on Samsung smartphones and tablets.
