Closed Tabs Retrived Technique
More than ever, our laptop screen is always a mess of tabs since we all spend a lot of time on the Google Chrome browser. How many times have we unintentionally closed a tab when we meant to click on another function? It appears to be a daily occurrence. Perhaps the speed of the mouse has not been set correctly. Perhaps We are a little too impatient with the waiting time. Or perhaps we know the Keyboard magic shortcut of Ctrl + Shift + T. This shortcut can be a lifesaver for us in many instances.
So, what exactly does Ctrl+Shift+T (or Cmd+Shift+T on a Mac) do? We all know Ctrl+Z as one of the keyboard’s most vital and helpful shortcuts. In fact, it accomplishes the same goal: correcting an error. In this case, the flaw that causes windows and tabs to close unexpectedly while using a computer can be restored with this shortcut. To put it simply, if you accidentally delete a tab from your browser, don’t worry; you can get it back by pressing Ctrl+Shift+T.
Here are the top Four Ways to reopen closed tabs in Google Chrome
Before stating the four ways of restoring a tab in Google Chrome, we should keep in mind that a tab cannot be restored once closed while using Incognito Mode.
If you mistakenly close a tab, you can quickly bring it back with a keyboard shortcut. On a PC, press Ctrl+Shift+T. Mac users, press Cmd+Shift+T to toggle full-screen mode. Tabs can be restored in the order in which they were closed by pressing Ctrl+Shift+T, which is useful if you need to restore numerous tabs or a tab you closed a while ago. Secret: If you dismiss your browser window by accident, all you have to do is create a new Chrome window and use the shortcut again. This is a wonderful and simple technique when a system update requires you to exit your browser or restart your computer.
Browsing History Technique
Chrome keeps a record of your browser history, including any recently closed tabs. This isn’t as quick as using a keyboard shortcut, but it can be helpful if you need to reopen a tab that you closed unintentionally. The Chrome browser’s history can be accessed in a number of different ways. There is another shortcut you can use on your keyboard, and it’s the combination of the Control Key and the letter H (Ctrl+H).
You can also use the browser’s hamburger menu located in the top right corner of the screen. A third choice is to go to the address bar and enter “chrome:/history.” No matter how you reach it, your browser’s history is where you’ll find a list of all the pages you’ve visited and the tabs you’ve opened, in reverse chronological order. If you want to return to a result, just click on it. Another convenient feature is the list of recently closed tabs that may be reopened by clicking the hamburger menu’s “Recently closed” option.
Tab Search Technique
Have you ever seen the tiny down arrow in Chrome’s tab bar? In Windows, it is next to the window’s minimization buttons. (On a Mac, it’s at the upper right.) With a quick press of Ctrl+Shift+A, you may activate Chrome’s in-built Keyboard tab search function, represented by this icon. When you use tab search, it will display both the tabs you now have open and the ones you have closed in the recent past. You can use the search bar or the drop-down menus to quickly locate the tab you’re looking for. Those who routinely have dozens of tabs open regularly will find this a helpful feature.
Right-clicking the Chrome app’s taskbar icon Keyboard brings up a menu with a few options if you have a Chrome window open or if the app is pinned to your Keyboard taskbar. Most Visited, as well as Recently Close, are the links you will find. Simply clicking on that button will bring back the selected tab. (These menus are absent on Mac.)
Additional Free Trick Technique
In Chrome, you can change the settings to make Ctrl+Shift+T the default. If you enable this option, Chrome will remember the tabs you had open in your last session and load them whenever you launch the browser. You can activate this shortcut using the Chrome Settings Function (also via the hamburger menu).
Does Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Opera too support this feature?
Ctrl + Shift + T is a universal keyboard shortcut that can be used in any web browser (as well as right-clicking on the tab bar and selecting Reopen a closed tab). Though the menu labels and available options may vary by browser, most other methods of reopening a tab are compatible with all of them. Other than the taskbar technique, the Mac experience is identical too.
Whether you’re using Firefox or Microsoft Edge, you may look through your browsing history to discover and reopen a tab you closed by accident. You may find the Recently closed tabs submenu in the Stories menu in Firefox. Microsoft Edge’s tab history features an All option, as well as Closed Tabs and Opened Tabs from Other Devices. If you have Opera’s sidebar enabled and have chosen to display your browsing history there, you can do so by clicking the story icon. If you click on the tab symbol in the sidebar, you can see the most recently closed tabs.
The other browsers have a similar option to load previously used tabs upon launch. To enable this feature, navigate to Firefox’s settings > General and tick the box labelled Open previous windows and tabs. Choose Open tabs from the previous session at startup by going to Settings > Start, the home page, and new tabs in Microsoft Edge. And in Opera: settings > At the start, select the option to Remember your settings from the previous session.
