We’ve all been there – you’re in the middle of a complex task in Google Chrome, but you need to restart or log out. Fortunately, with a quick change of settings, Chrome can remember all your tabs and automatically reload them the next time you launch your browser. Here’s how to set it up.
First, open Chrome. In any window, click the three vertical dots button in the upper right corner and select “Settings” from the menu.
In the “Settings” tab, select “On startup” in the sidebar.
In the “At startup” section, select the radio button next to “Continue where you left off.”
After that, close the “Settings” tab. The next time you restart Chrome, all the tabs will reopen exactly where you left them.
And if you ever want to experiment, you can also make Chrome start with a set of favorite pages at a time on the same “At startup” page in Chrome Settings. Instead, select “Open a specific page or set of pages.” Very useful!
Of course, if you want Chrome to always open with a new, empty browser state, you can go back to this screen and select “Open New Tab page” instead.
