Return to the original tab OR open E&SS in a tab immediately to the right of the original

I generally have dozens of tabs open at once, which. Since Chrome does not allow multiple rows of tabs, this means there is often no room for text or even a favicon to distinguish one from the other. E&SS sometimes (but not always) opens in a tab to the right of all of them. Thus, after I'm finished using the extension, I am typically left with no easy way to get back to the tab the screenshot was taken from.

^^ My tab bar.   Have mercy! ^^

It would be great if, upon closing the tab opened by E&SS, I was automatically taken back to the originating tab – even better would be to make it a setting available on the "Options" page. And better still if the E&SS tab also had a button to go back to the originating tab, for those who want to keep the E&SS tab open for some reason.


  • Good suggestion, i'll see what I can do with the zero permission this extension currently has - because that might technically require some.
  • Just bumping this - as it's been killing me. My current work around has been to drag my active tab to the far right before I screenshot but I often forget and lose my tab for 3 minutes

  • @Adam Lewis Thanks I've queued this for investigation, I hadn't really noticed this behaviour, but it's true it could be improved.

  • Thanks!

    @Adam Lewis Good news when closing the editor in v11.3 you return to the original tab.
