Method 1: Using Keyboard Shortcuts
The easiest and quickest way to open a closed tab on Chrome is by using keyboard shortcuts. Here’s how to do it: 1. To reopen the last closed tab, press “Ctrl + Shift + T” or “Cmd + Shift + T” on a Mac. 2. To reopen a closed tab other than the last one, right-click on any open tab and select “Reopen closed tab” from the dropdown menu.
Method 2: Using the Chrome Menu
If you’re not a fan of keyboard shortcuts, you can also use the Chrome menu to reopen closed tabs. Here’s how: 1. Click on the three-dot icon in the top right corner of the Chrome window. 2. Hover over “History” and select “Recently closed” from the dropdown menu. 3. Click on the tab you want to reopen.
Method 3: Using the History Page
Another way to recover closed tabs is by using the Chrome history page. Here’s how: 1. Click on the three-dot icon in the top right corner of the Chrome window. 2. Hover over “History” and select “History” from the dropdown menu. 3. Find the tab you want to reopen and click on it.
Method 4: Using Extensions
If you frequently close tabs by accident, you might want to consider using an extension that saves your browsing session. Here are a few extensions you can try: 1. Session Buddy 2. Tab Session Manager 3. OneTab
