Using Keyboard Shortcuts
One of the easiest ways to reopen closed tab is by using keyboard shortcuts. If you’re using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, you can press “Ctrl + Shift + T” on your keyboard to reopen the last closed tab. This shortcut works on Windows and Linux operating systems.
Using the Browser History
If you’ve closed multiple tabs and want to reopen a specific one, you can use the browser history. In Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, you can access the browser history by pressing “Ctrl + H” on your keyboard. From there, you can scroll through your browsing history and find the closed tab you want to reopen.
Using the Browser Menu
Another way to reopen closed tab is by using the browser menu. In Google Chrome, you can right-click on any tab and select “Reopen Closed Tab.” In Mozilla Firefox, you can right-click on any tab and select “Undo Close Tab.”
Using a Mouse Gesture
If you’re using the Opera browser, you can use a mouse gesture to reopen closed tab. Simply hold down the right mouse button and draw a line from left to right. This will reopen the last closed tab.
Using a Third-Party Extension
If you frequently close tabs by accident, you may want to consider using a third-party extension. There are several extensions available that can help you reopen closed tab with just a click of a button. Some popular extensions include Session Manager, Tab Mix Plus, and Undo Closed Tabs Button.
