Recover Closed Browser Tabs

Sometimes I intend to only close one browser tab but accidentally close the browser itself, thus closing all the tabs. It’s one of those “oh bugger!” moments.

The good news is that there’s a solution, and it is Ctrl-Shift-T.

Open the browser again and press Ctrl-Shift-T, and all your previous tabs will reopen.

This also usually works after a system reboot. You know: you come into work and discover your system has rebooted itself overnight, and all those browser tabs you had open are gone…

Move Fast Using the Home and End keys

This is a repeat of a previous Tip, but I don’t see anyone using these yet, so it’s worth repeating.

This shortcut saves you a LOT of scrolling and mouse clicking while browsing the Web or documents.

Use the HOME and END keys to swiftly return to the beginning or jump to the end of a web page, document, or presentation.

(The Home key and End key are located on the keyboard next to the Page Up and Page Down keys.)

On the Web, in a PDF document, or during a PowerPoint presentation:

Tap the Home key to return immediately to the beginning of the Web page, PDF document, or PowerPoint presentation.

Tap the End key to go immediately to the end.

In a Word document:

Hold down the Control key and Tap the Home key to return immediately to the beginning of the document.

Hold down the Control key and tap the End key to go immediately to the end of the document.
