Have you ever closed important tabs by accident when surfing the Internet with your PC or Mac? Of course you do. We all do. After searching the internet, I finally found an important web form, veiled in the depths of a poorly mapped website, only to accidentally close the page while shrinking the 158 open tabs. It’s a real pain in the butt
Now, you can open a new tab with Ctrl/Cmd + T and search your history to find the page. Or you can start typing in the URL bar until the appropriate page is suggested.
But there’s a more nimble move you can make, using a simple keyboard shortcut to reopen tab to open the selected tab again and pick up where you left off.
Sound useful? We thought so too. Even better, the shortcut reopens all the tabs you just closed, in order, returning them to the position they previously held in the tab bar. Genius.
This shortcut works on both Mac and PC. It also worked on all of the desktop browsers we tested, including Chrome, Safari, Edge, Opera, and Firefox, though it’s worth noting that one of our testers had an issue with the shortcut not working on Firefox for PC. (Others haven’t, so this is probably an issue isolated to that PC.)
So, without further ado, here’s how to reopen closed tabs on any browser.
How to reopen tabs on any computer browser
1. on Windows, Press Ctrl + Shift + T..
2. on mac, Press Cmd + Shift + T..
And there you have it. Your tabs have reopened.
