How To Restore Google Chrome Tabs After Restart

There’s nothing more frustrating than accidentally closing all your tabs in Google Chrome, or restarting your computer only to lose all the web pages you had open. But don’t worry, there are ways to restore your Google Chrome tabs after a restart. Let’s dive into it.

Restore Tabs via Browser Settings

One of the easiest ways to restore your tabs in Google Chrome is through the browser’s settings. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Launch Google Chrome – if it isn’t already open.
  2. Click on the three dots in the top-right corner of the window. This will open a drop-down menu.
  3. Click on Settings from the drop-down menu.
  4. Scroll down to the section labelled On startup.
  5. Select the option that says Continue where you left off.

Now, each time you restart your browser, all of your tabs will reopen exactly as you had them before the restart.

Restoring Tabs via History

If you have already restarted your browser and forgot to change the settings, you can still retrieve your lost tabs through your browsing history. Follow these steps:

  1. Launch Google Chrome.
  2. Press Ctrl + H on your keyboard. This will open up your browsing history.
  3. On the left of the screen, click on History.
  4. There should be an option that says Recently Closed. Click on it to see all of the tabs that you have closed during your last browsing session.
  5. Select the option that says Restore All to reopen all the tabs you had open before the restart.

Restore Tabs With The ‘Reopen Closed Tab’ Feature

Another quick way to reopen a closed tab is by using the ‘Reopen closed tab’ feature. Here’s how:

  1. Launch Google Chrome.
  2. Right-click on any existing tab.
  3. Select Reopen closed tab from the drop-down menu.

This will open your most recently closed tab. You can keep selecting this option to open other tabs that were closed during your last browsing session.

In conclusion, Google Chrome offers multiple ways of restoring your tabs after a restart. So, if you ever accidentally lose your tabs, know that there are ways to get them back.
