Have you ever been working on multiple tabs and accidentally closed your Chrome window or a particular tab?

We’ve all been there but don’t panic all is not lost. There are a couple of ways you can get your tabs back.

Follow one of these steps:

  • Right click on your Chrome bar > Reopen closed tab
  • Use the Ctrl + Shift + T shortcut
  • Right click on your Chrome icon on your taskbar > you’ll see ‘Recently closed’

If you find you’ve closed your entire Chrome window by mistake, the same trick applies but instead of it saying ‘Reopen recently closed tab’ it will say ‘Window’ instead.

Finally, if you want to start where you left off when opening Chrome again, go to > Settings > On Start-Up > choose ‘Continue where I left off’.
Next time you open Chrome you will get the open tabs from your last browsing session.
