Let’s face it, we often open a disproportionate number of tabs in our browsers.
This inevitably slows down the web pages, and we can end up having to restart Google Chrome. The tabs you currently have open in your browser don’t have to be lost, though. There are several ways to retrieve an open tab on Google.
If you need to restart your Chrome browser while keeping all of your open tabs, this article can help. Read on to learn how to use Google Chrome’s tab recovery and prevention features.
How Can I Restart Chrome and Keep My Tabs?
We’ve provided two methods in this post for restarting Chrome without losing your open tabs. Either of these methods could be used to restart your browser and carry on from where you left off.
With Chrome, you may restart the browser without losing your open tabs by using a specific command. If this time you only want to employ Chrome’s tab-keeping functionality, you can use this technique.
Enter on your keyboard after pasting the command chrome:/restart into the address bar. Each open tab will remain open during Google Chrome’s automatic reboot.
When there are too many open tabs, Google Chrome frequently crashes. A better choice would be to set Chrome to pick up where you left off if you routinely access a tonne of tabs. The tabs that were open when the programme was closed will be reopened by Chrome as a result.
Follow these instructions to modify your browser’s settings so that you can restart Chrome without losing your open tabs:
1. Locate and choose the horizontal three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the browser window
2. Head to Settings
3. Click On Startup from the left panel
4. Select the space next to Continue where you left off
How Can Lost Tabs Be Restored?
We already advised you on how to restart your browser without losing your open tabs. But what if your browser is already closed? You can still restore each tab from your browser history, so don’t worry.
Here are the steps you could apply to recover your lost tabs from Google Chrome’s history:
- Open your Chrome browser.
- Hit the combination Ctrl + H to open the browser history.
- From the history window:
- If you want to open individual tabs, locate and select them from List.
- If you wish to recover a series of tabs, head to Journey > three-dot menu> Open all in new tab.
Reopen Closed Windows
You could reopen the entire window that was unexpectedly closed. Follow these steps to restore lost tabs from a new Chrome window:
- Launch Google Chrome.
- Right-click on the address bar and select Reopen closed window.
Chrome will open a new window restoring all the tabs you had opened before.
