Sometimes when we accidentally close our Google Chrome browser while visiting essential websites or doing critical work, it feels so annoying, and we want to reopen them and continue with our work.
Chrome allows you to open closed tabs in many ways so that you can visit the site you want. It’s pretty simple and requires just a few seconds of your time. There are a few ways to open the tabs you recently closed. Without further ado, let’s see how to reopen closed tabs in Google Chrome.
Reopen the recent tab via the short key or from the top Chrome bar
If you want to reopen a recently closed tab, one of the most common methods to do so is by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+T (short-key) from your keyboard, or you can follow a slightly longer process by following these steps:
- First, open the Google Chrome browser.
- Then right-click on the top bar of Google Chrome (the plane bar).
- You will be presented with a list of options.
- Look for the “Reopen closed tab” option below the “New tab” option.
Reopen the tab via the history search
Another way to reopen the site you want is by doing a bit of searching in your browser’s history.
To reopen the site from your browser’s history, you can follow the steps mentioned below:
- Open Google Chrome Browser.
- Look for the three horizontal bars below the “X” button in the top right corner.
- You will be presented with a submenu upon clicking on the horizontal bars.
- Look for “History” from the submenu.
- Once you hover the mouse over “History” in the submenu, you will be shown another “History” button. You will be taken to your browser’s history by clicking on this button.
- In your browser’s history, you can see all the websites you have visited on your machine in the form of a log that has been categorized into periods.
- You can look for the website you want to revisit from this history page.
- You can also search for a site based on a keyword by entering the keyword in the search textbox of history.
Another way to open the history is by using the short key from your keyboard, “CTRL+H.”
Another method to open the site you had closed recently (more than 1, of course) is to click on the three horizontal bars below the “X” button, as discussed above. Once you reach the main history button (after the submenu) just below the history, you will see the recently closed tabs.
The methods we have discussed are very handy and have been specially designed by Google developers so that the user can have ease of access and can get back their work by just making a couple of clicks only in case they accidentally close the browser or the tab. The work becomes easier when using short keys comes into action because they save the user from using lengthy procedures to open a specific page or option.
