Best Tools to Repair Accidentally Closed Windows of Google Chrome

There are so many browsers available nowadays. Every day so many pages and blog come in existence. Some of the famous web browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Edge, and even Internet Explorer. But still, Google Chrome is our first choice.

There are so many reasons for the first priority of Google Chrome. It has so many features like built-in translations, autofill, and syncing across computers and other devices, all work really well. But, here is the biggest issue is losing tabs.

I hardly face this issue and I am using Google chrome since so many years. But when I face the issue and solution is also must. This issue can be annoying. Here are some easiest ways to get that missing site back in your browser.

Repair Accidentally Closed Windows

Let us start with when one tab accidentally closed. To fix this, either right-click on a tab and select ‘Reopen closed tab’ from the context menu or press Ctrl+Shift+T. The second way is going to the Menu (the three stack dots at the top right of the screen) and click it.

In the Menu, you will find History option when you scroll down. In History, you will find the most recent tabs closed. If you go through a lot and it was not one of the most recent that was exited. In this case, you will be out of luck because in history you can find only 8 tabs only. If this solution will not work for you, then you will have to move on to an all tabs solution.

Browser Settings

Before starting all tabs, let us point out the most obvious solution to reopen all tabs. If your browser gets closed, follow this simple step. Go to the menu again and this time click on ‘Settings’. Here you have to scroll down to the On Startup section. Here you will find the ‘Continue where you left off option.

Browser settings-2

Click this option to enable it. Be warned, this works about 90 percent of the time.

If your Chrome crashed while you had tabs open and you need them back, then: 

  1. Open a new browser window.
  2. Find the yellow restoration message at the top of your window: “Google Chrome didn’t shut down correctly. To reopen the pages you had open, click Restore.”
  3. Click Restore.

In Chrome go to File > ‘Reopen Closed Tab’

Best Tools to Repair Accidentally closed Tabs of Chrome

If the above solution not working for you then there are some third-party tools does the job. Here we try to provide you the best solutions. Either using Google Chrome itself or some third party tool. But, the motive is to resolve the problem.

Tab Cloud– Extension of Google Chrome

This is a third-party solution for accidentally closed windows. This is unique not only because it comes from outside Google, but also because it works with Firefox. Once downloaded you simply need to log in with your Google account.

Now you can save all open tabs by clicking the diskette and delete past saves by clicking the red circle. The more often you use it the better your chance of recovering your most recent setup. It is good to keep the last few saves, say six. Then when you add another you can delete the oldest.

Tab Cloud save and restore window sessions over time. It is easy to use. Simply click the Tab Cloud icon on the menu. Here you will find your currently open windows and previously saved windows. You can save the current window or can restore the saved ones.

The good part is if you want to delete the previously saved windows then you can. Dragging a tab icon allows you to move tabs between windows. This includes to and from saved windows that are not currently open.

You are also able to secure your account as well. As it uses your Google account then you can logout if do not want to use. Rename option is also a good one. Click on any windows name to rename at any time.

Session Buddy– Extension of Google Chrome

This is also a Google Chrome extension. When you open session buddy it will tell you whether your device is compatible or not. It manages browser tabs and bookmarks without any problem.

It saves open tabs and restores them for later use. If you face any crash and want to recover your tabs. Then recover with the help of session buddy. I like the most is it manage open window and tabs in one place.

Session Buddy

Save or open a list of URLs from the clipboard or a file. Add to your Chrome extensions. With the use of Session Buddy, you can easily resolve your issues. It is very helpful for restoring tabs.

This was the about the restoring the pages. But, sometimes we need to restore deleted files.

Use DNS Cache to recover deleted Google Chrome browsing history

For recovery keep your computer connected to the internet and do not shut down or restart your computer after you lose your Chrome history. Follow the next steps to access your deleted Chrome browsing history by using DNS now:

  1. Press Windows + R, type cmd and click OK. Or, you can also type cmd in the Windows search bar.
  2. Open Command Prompt, type ipcongif /displaydns and click Enter.
DNS Cache

When you complete the above two steps. All your recently visited websites will be displayed. You can view all of your recent browsing histories on Chrome, and copy & paste the important websites into Chrome where they will be saved once more. 

In this solution, you will find only your recent browsing activity and will not be able to recover your full Chrome history, unlike the next two solutions.

Restore Chrome browsing history from Google History

If you have a Google account, whenever you lose your Chrome browsing files or Bookmarks, you can get them back via Google History. Google History will reinstate all of your browsing histories, including Bookmarks, that is stored in your Google Account. Let’s see how to recover deleted Chrome history via Google History: 

  • Search Google History  > Click “Welcome to My Activity – Google”.
  • Sign in to your Google account.
  • Then all of your browser/internet history files will be displayed along with the date/time. Browse your history as needed. 
Restore deleted Chrome history from Google Account.

Most often, when you delete Chrome history files and bookmarks on your PC, you can navigate to the path below to find the backup files of Chrome history/bookmarks:
