Restoring Closed Tabs in Your Browser

You know that sinking feeling when you inadvertently close one or more tabs in your browser window, and you can’t easily remember the address to the site you were looking at? If so, you’ll love this tip that was brought to my attention by Jeff Shuey.

If you have multiple tabs open in your browser, it will look something like this:

internet-explorer-multiple-tabs-20160823-1

If I closed one of those tabs, I can resurrect it by pressing CTRL – SHIFT – T. VoilĂ , the closed tab reappears!

If you’re using Google Chrome as your browser, CTRL – SHIFT – T goes one step further. If you close the browser completely and then reopen it, that key combination will reload *all* the browser windows that were open at the time you closed Chrome.
