Oops, did you just X out of that window that had 17 tabs open (yes, seventeen, again)?
Panic sets in because you have NO idea what 17 tabs you just closed.
Or, did you just click that X instead of that + and close a tab you weren’t done with, instead of opening a new one?
UGH, that’s so annoying. What was I just working on? Looking at my browser history makes my heart race.
Enter.. Dara. I feel like SuperMan soaring in to the rescue with this, but did you know that there’s a REOPEN CLOSED TAB menu option in Chrome? (In fairness, it exists in most browsers.)
If you didn’t know, now you do.
And not only does that badboy reopen closed tab exist in the menu that appears when you right click on the blank space beside the open tabs, but it’s also an easy-to-remember keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+T (Cmd+Shift+T on Mac).
Did you know that the keyboard shortcut for a NEW TAB is Ctrl+T (Cmd+T on Mac). Well, Ctrl+Shift+T is its UNDO cousin.
So the next time you inadvertently close one tab or a whole window, click into Chrome and practice Ctrl+Shift+T (Cmd+Shift+T)… and think of me fondly!
