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 one quick change to the settings, Chrome can remember all your tabs and automatically reload them the next time you start your browser. Here’s how to set it up.
First, open Chrome. In any window, click the three vertical dots button in the top right corner and select “Settings”
In the “Settings” tab, select “On startup” in the sidebar.
In the ‘On startup’ section, select the radio button next to ‘Continue where you left off’.
Then close the “Settings” tab. The next time you restart Chrome, all of your tabs will open up right where you left off.
And if you ever want to experiment, you can also have Chrome launch with a series of favorite pages every time on the same ‘On startup’ page in Chrome settings. Instead, select “Open a specific page or set of pages”. Very handy!
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 the new tab page’ instead.
