If you accidentally closed a tab in the Google Chrome web browser, you can get it back with just a few keystrokes. Reopen a closed tab with these steps.
Via Keyboard Command
- Windows, Chrome OS, and Linux – Press Ctrl + Shift + T
- Mac – Press Command + Shift + T
You can do this with Chrome up to 10 times, and it will reopen the tabs you have closed in order.
Via Menu Options
- Select the “Menu” icon then select “Recent Tabs“.
- Select any of the options to reopen a closed tab. One option will say “# Tabs“. This option will open the tabs you had open the last time you closed completely out of Google Chrome.
If you really need to find a web page you visited before, you can also select the “History” option to view more pages that were previously visited.
Can you reopen closed tabs in Chrome for Android or iPhone?
Sort of. You can open the Most Visited page from the tab that opens when you start a new tab in Chrome for Android and iOS.
I don’t like this feature. Is there any way to disable the saving of closed tabs?
No. But you can browse the web in Incognito Mode and any of the tabs you use will not be saved in “Recent Tabs”.
