To enable or disable the automatic tab refreshing feature in Google Chrome, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Type "chrome://flags" in the address bar and hit Enter.
  3. In the search box on the 'Flags' page, type "Tab discarding" to filter the relevant options.
  4. Look for the "Proactive Tab Freeze and Discard" flag and click on the drop-down menu next to it.
  5. Select "Enabled" from the drop-down menu to enable the automatic tab refreshing feature, or select "Disabled" to disable it.
  6. Relaunch Google Chrome for the changes to take effect.


Note that the exact wording and availability of these options may differ based on your version of Google Chrome. Additionally, enabling or disabling this feature may impact your browsing experience and the performance of your browser, especially if you have multiple tabs open.
