Salesforce Console: Simple Tab Management

We’ve made it easier for console users to find, access, and update tabs.
Reopen Last-Closed Tabs
Your users can now reopen any primary tabs that they closed accidentally by clicking a button or by pressing a keyboard shortcut. From the tab bar, click The tab drop-down button. and select Reopen last-closed tab, or press SHIFT + C. Users can reopen up to ten closed tabs.
Pin Primary Tabs
Now your users can pin their favorite or most frequently visited tabs to the tab bar for instant access. Pinning a tab is easy. From the tab bar, click The tab drop-down button. and select The pin tab icon. next to a tab. When a tab is pinned, it’s moved to the front of the tab bar, and its text is removed to provide more screen space.

Unpinning a tab is easy too. Click The tab drop-down button. and select The unpin tab icon.. To rearrange pinned tabs, drag them to any location on the tab bar before the first unpinned tab. Users can’t pin tabs for new-unsaved records or new tabs that appear by clicking The new tab button.. Pinned tabs are unavailable for Internet Explorer® 7 and 8.
To save users’ pinned tabs after they close their browsers or log out of a Salesforce console, check Save User Sessions for each console. See Save User Sessions for a Salesforce Console.
Bookmark Primary Tabs
Users can now bookmark their favorite or occasionally visited tabs for quick access. Bookmarking a tab is simple. From the tab bar, click The tab drop-down button. and select The bookmark tab icon. next to a tab. When a tab is bookmarked, it’s moved to the History component in the footer (formerly named Most Recent Tabs).
