Google Chrome is probably the most popular browser out there at the moment, with the majority of people choosing it as their go-to browser on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. Chrome offers so much in the way of stability, and you can customize so many things to ensure that your online experience is perfect. 

One of Chrome’s most popular features is its ability to quickly restore previously opened tabs, even after closing the entire browser.

So today, we’ll be showing you how to restore your tabs on Google Chrome after closing the browser and after closing the tab while keeping it open.
