Each Journey entry contains a source site – usually a Google Search – and one or more secondary sites. Those are the sites you found during your search. The parent site has an overflow menu on the right. There are a few possibilities if you click the overflow menu.
You may either open all of those tabs in a new group, or delete the entire Journey from your history. Opening these sites in a new tab group is a great feature that enables you go back to work quickly.
