How to reopen recently closed tabs in Google Chrome on PC, Android, iPhone or Mac

Did you accidentally close the tab with the right Might or page? This happens to everyone, so most browsers have an option to return recently closed tabs.

Is there an option to recover closed tabs in Google Chrome on different devices

Everyone has probably had a situation where you accidentally close a tab that should still be used. However, even with such cases, Google Chrome developers have taken care of such scenarios and made it possible to open tabs that have just been closed. And even those that you already closed last week, thanks to your browsing history. The latter, by the way, can be used if you have not cleaned the history recently, of course. Thus, you will always find websites you visited not long ago.

However, the browsing history isn’t the only way to open recently closed tabs. Below you will find methods to return to sites that you have accidentally or recently closed on different devices.

How to recover closed tabs in Chrome via Windows

So, you need to find the tabs that you have closed or lost. As you know, Google Chrome always keeps a history of your visits to various sites and resources, so all your recent activity is right in History. To go to History, use this guide:

  • Launch Chrome and then open a new tab
  • Then, open the More menu by clicking the three dots icon in the upper right corner of the Chrome screen.
  • On the dropdown menu, hover over History
  • Find the closed tab from the list of recently closed websites and click on it

In case the tab that you’re looking for isn’t shown on the list, then it apparently may be further down the list. In order to view an expanded list, use this guide:

  • Once you’re hovering over the History menu, click on History or use the shortcut Ctrl + H
  • Scroll down the list to find the website that you want to open
  • Click on the desired website to open it in a new tab

In order to have quick access to the recently closed page use the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + T.

How to recover closed tabs in Chrome via MacOS

Basically, the method on Mac is very similar to Windows, so here is a guide on how to open recent tabs in Chrome on Mac:

  • Launch Chrome and then open a new tab
  • Then, open the History on the upper bar of the Chrome screen
  • On the dropdown menu, you’ll see most recent tabs you visited
  • Find the closed tab from the list of recently closed websites and click on it

In addition, you can also open Show full history to get access to the tabs you’ve lost.

How to recover closed tabs in Chrome via Android device

If you accidentally close a tab or lose the website you want, it’s easy to go back through the Chrome mobile app using this guide:

  • Launch the Chrome mobile app and then open a new tab so that you don’t overwrite the current one
  • On the new screen that appears, click on the plus icon on the upper left of the screen
  • Now, click on the More menu icon. It’s the three dots icon on the upper right corner of the screen
  • Scroll down the menu that appears until you see History and Recent Tabs. Tap either one of them to get access to recent websites
  • Then, scroll down the list of recently opened websites until you find the website that you wish to open

Of course, this method will only work if you have not cleaned your browsing history recently.

How to recover closed tabs in Chrome via iOS device

  • Click on the menu for options
  • Choose the Recent Tabs option
  • Tap any of the recently closed sites to reopen in chrome iOS

How to re-open closed tabs in Chrome if it crashed

Sometimes your work can be interrupted by sudden technical problems. This scenario is also envisioned by the developers, and in order to save all your progress, Google Chrome has such an option as auto-recovery tabs. If you don’t have it enabled, it’s recommended to enable it. Here is how to do it:

  • Open the Chrome browser. If it’s already running, open a new tab so that you don’t overwrite the currently open website
  • Click on the customization and control options menu. This is the three dots icon on the upper right corner of the screen
  • In the dropdown menu, find and click on Settings
  • In the Settings menu, find and click on the On Startup option. Make sure that the toggle on Continue where you left off has been turned on
  • You can now navigate out of this window

Also, this function works not only when the program is flying, but also when you close the browser window (for example, by accident). When you open the window again, all your tabs will be in place.

However, if you close them manually, the next time you open the browser window, you will not see these tabs.

Now you know more about navigating in Chrome, how to manage your tabs, and how not to lose your website.
