How to reopen an accidently closed tab in Chrome


Finding the right Webpage is very difficult and closing it accidently is extremely painful. Sometimes, while switching through different tabs in the browser, we accidentally click on the cross (X) button which results in the tab getting closed.

Thankfully we understand your pain!

There are two methods that you can use to recover an accidently closed tab:

Method 1: You can reopen an accidentally closed tab by pressing Ctrl+Shift+T or right-clicking on the tab bar and clicking “Reopen closed tab”. A new tab will open and it will load the same page you recently closed accidently. If you press Ctrl+Shift+T again then it will open the second last closed tab. This shortcut also works in Firefox.

Method 2. You can also look for chrome history which is inbuilt feature of the browser. Press Ctrl+H or type chrome://history/ in the address bar (as shown in screenshot below) and it will display you all the tabs you opened previously.
