pc issue Drag tab out as a new window function

8 posts in this topic

Nice new feature. However, the newly formed stand-alone tab can't be dragged back to the old window. I think this omission makes the drag and drop function still not quite Chrome-y.

I agree. I am glad this function is finally back. I had been requesting it for years. But it would be nice to be able to drag the tab back. Even Internet Explorer is able to do this.

You already can, as long as it is not the last tab of a window.(you need more than one tab)

That is the thing though. You have to get a new tab, drag the original tab back, and then kill the new one-tab window.

So why did you want to drag it out in the first place?

Anyway, for now it's better than nothing.

Suppose I got a U2715H and a 34UC79G, and suppose I am writing an email while looking at a source page; I drag out the source page from the Maxthon window which is on my U2715H, and toss it onto the 34UC79G. I finish the email, hit the send button, and now what? I'd still like to keep the source page open. I'd hate for it to be left alone in the dark, across the great schism between screens. I can drag it back to U2715H, but it'd still be out of its original circle.

 

All of this, of course, is hypothetical, but highly probable and realistic.

 

That said, I agree with you it's better than nothing. I didn't start this thread for my benefit. I am actually a one-window, multi-browser guy.

I've had to do this many times before. I have several tabs open, need to detach one so I can read something and work on a different tab on separate monitors, and then have it go back to the same window again. In fact, I am doing this just now as I write this response.
