[Solved] Left Click Closes Tab on Google Chrome


Problem: Left Click Closes Tab on Google Chrome


Step 1: Do a few centre mouse clicks on the Tab “bar”. On few laptops, there is centre click, so use that

Step 2: Now left click and it will not close the tab.

    It worked like a charm !!! But it seems there’s more magic to it than logic.
