If done correctly, you’ll notice that a circle will appear next to the tab. Right-click on it and name the tab group. You’ll also be able to add a colour to it, making it easier to recognize among the rest of the tabs. After doing so, the circle will disappear and it will be replaced with the name you gave to the group.

Now it’s time to sort all your tabs into groups. To do so, right-click on an open tab and select “Add to existing group”, then choose the group you want to add it to.
