Use the Google Chrome options

Google Chrome has many useful features. Reopening the most recently opened pages is one of them. Here's how to set this option in your Chrome settings.

Click on the menu "Extras

under the three-dot menu in the upper right corner of the Chrome browser.

Click on Options.

On the General tab, choose Reopen Recently Opened Pages. Click the Close button.

The next time you restart your browser, you will find that all of the recently opened tabs will reopen.

Cool tip : Often times you open the Chrome browser and cannot find the Restore button. You can use a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + Shift + T) to restore the previous session. This should work the same way, opening the collection of tabs that were closed during the crash. Before activating this shortcut, press Ctrl + T to open a new tab.

Google Chrome Session Manager Extension

This extension provides a powerful way to save all of your browsing sessions and open them again whenever you want. This is especially useful for those looking for a variety of tabs open in different browser windows. It can help you to save your tab groups separately with different names.

It's a much faster and better solution to bookmark these pages unless you need them permanently.

Session Manager is easy to use. Once installed, a small icon will appear in the Chrome extension bar. When you click on it, a small session window will appear asking you to save the current session. Give the session a name and click Save. That's it. Simple and easy!

Now you can close all tabs and get on with your work. If you want to reopen all of the saved tabs, just click the session icon and open the session you want.

You will notice that each session shows the number of current tabs, the number of browser windows, and the creation date for previous browser sessions.

Why do you need it

  • If you do research on a variety of topics and have many tabs open, you can create sessions and revisit the recently opened tabs if necessary.
  • You can create browser sessions for the major websites that you check daily.

Other possibilities

If the above two methods don't work well, you can always check your Chrome's browsing history by pressing Ctrl + H and opening the page you want to restore.

You don't need to open a new tab to view browsing history. The Chrome tab for the history opens automatically in the address bar.
