How To Restore Closed Tabs After Quitting Chrome.
Did you accidentally close your Chrome browser? Lost all your open tabs?
No confirmation before closing Chrome windows. And you must admit, there are times when we accidentally close the Chrome browser. So what to do next?
Well, don’t worry, there are some easy ways to reopen all closed tabs.
Restore closed tabs on Chrome
The obvious way to open closed tabs in any browser is to go into history. To do this, on Windows, press CTRL + H or CMD + Y for Mac. The stories are recorded in chronological order, however, so if you’ve closed multiple tabs in between, you’ll have to spend some time searching for a previously opened website.
The second method
The best way to reopen a closed window is to use the shortcut – CTRL + SHIFT + T (or CMD + SHIFT + T for Mac) . Yes, this is the same shortcut we use to reopen a closed tab in normal browsing. And it also works fine after closing the browser.
Or, you can also right-click the Chrome tab and select the option to reopen a closed window .
However, since Chrome stores all user data in a temporary folder, this shortcut may not work every time. For example, if you quit Chrome, shut down your computer and then restart it after a while; then there is a chance that all your data will be lost.
If you have often accidentally closed the chrome window, then it makes sense to look for a permanent solution.
Most people use the option to continue where you left in Chrome settings. However, this is different from what we are trying to achieve. Most of us don’t want to reopen last-used tabs every time you open Chrome; we are only interested in preventing accidental closing of tabs. We have the best solution.
Fortunately, Mac has a hidden option to enable a confirmation notification before exiting Chrome. To activate it, go to the chrome menu in the upper left corner of the screen and check the box – Warn before exiting . Now, instead of pressing CMD + Q, you will need to hold CMD + Q for a while to exit Chrome.
Unfortunately for Windows – there is no such built-in option. Therefore, our only choice is to use a third party app to prevent accidentally closing Chrome. And I found two such applications.
Block this Chrome extension which, once enabled, will prompt you for confirmation before you close the tab. But this is not the best solution as it works for tabs and we need something for the whole Chrome window.
Another thing you can try is No Close. This is a lightweight application that will ask for a confirmation window before closing any application. Don’t forget to add this app to Windows Startup.
