I can't open the internet. It says maximum tabs reached.

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

The number of tabs (webpages) you can keep open at one time will depend on your device. Higher specification devices will be able to keep more pages open than lower specification ones.


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.




1. Tap the Recent button




2. This will bring up all your open apps. Tap the Internet Browser you are using.


Select browser 


3. The method for closing tabs will differ slightly depending on whether you are using the Samsung Internet Browser or Chrome.


Select the option that matches your browser.


Tap the number of tabs icon.


Note that in the Samsung Internet browser you may need to touch the screen first to bring up the bar at the bottom.



Tabs Chrome   Samsung Tabs 


4. This will show you all the tabs you have open.  To close one tab or to select which tabs to close, touch the X in the top right corner of each tab you wish to close. 


Skip to step 5 to see how to close all the tabs.


Close one tab Chrome  Close one tab Samsung 


5. To close all the tabs, tap More  (this may be represented by three dots)


More dots  More Samsung 



6. Tap Close all tabs or Close all


Close all tabs  Close all
