To find much different information, sometimes we lack one site, so we go to other sites to search for something, thus opening many different tabs. But it happens that you desperately need to restart Google Chrome to update the browser or reboot the PC, or Windows itself will do a sudden reboot after an automatic update, well, or for some other reason. If you don’t want to lose access to your tabs, Google may give you a way to avoid it. Below we will explain how to restart Google Chrome and not lose tabs opened earlier.
Restart Without Losing Last Opened Tabs in Windows
Google has a feature of reopening previously closed tabs. As we mentioned earlier, to do this, do the following steps:
- Go to the Google Chrome browser.
- In the right up corner of the browser, tap the three dots icon “Menu”, then choose “Settings” from the drop-down options.
- On the left pane, tap on the “On startup” tab on the Chrome Settings page.
- Tap The radio button “Continue where you left off” on the right-side pane of the “On startup”.
- Press the key combination (Ctrl + Shift + A)
- Next, you will see the window with your tabs.
- Scroll down and see your “Recently Closed Tabs” below.
- Press the key combination (Ctrl + Shift + T) to get back your last closed tab.
- Go to Mac or Windows
- In the address pane of your Chrome browser, type chrome://restart
- Press the key “Enter” or “Return”. After that, your closed tabs will be restored
After all the above steps, your tabs will restore. And you will not lose access to your information.
