There’s nothing worse than accidentally closing an internet tab when you had a great piece of writing you had been dying to read or some pictures you wanted to peruse. If you hadn’t bookmarked it and don’t recall where the link came from, then there’s nothing more frustrating.
Of course, you can always go back to the source link if you know where it was – but there’s a better way. If you’re in Chrome – or for that matter, any modern browser – there’s an easy way to open tabs you’ve accidentally closed.
To do so, just hit Ctrl+Shift+T. then, the last tab you closed will pop up. And if you keep using this shortcut, you can use it for the last few tabs as well, if you happen to close a number at once.
