Most people like to have several tabs open at once when using the internet. If you have to close your internet for one reason or another but you don’t want to lose your open tabs, setting your browser to reopen where you left off can be very useful.
In this article you’ll learn how to resume a browsing session in chrome, internet explorer, and firefox.
If you are using internet explorer open up the internet options tab. In most current internet explorer versions, this is done by clicking on the gear in the top right of the window, the clicking on “internet options.”
Once you have opened the internet options window navigate to the general tab and the option under Startup labeled “Start with tabs from last session.” Now you can click the red x at the top right of the browsing window to close all tabs at once. The next time you open internet explorer, all of your tabs will reopen right where you left them.
In Google Chrome, click on the menu button at the top right corner of the window. This button looks like 3 horizontal lines. From there, click “settings”, then check the box labeled “Continue where you left off.” Be sure to close the internet browser by clicking the x in the top right of the screen instead of individual tabs, and next time you open chrome you’ll be able to pick up where you left off.
In most versions of Firefox, you’ll need to click the button that looks like 3 horizontal lines in the top right of the window, and then click on “options.” Look for a drop down box labeled “When Firefox starts:” and select the option that says “Show my windows and tabs from last time.”
As always, be sure to close your internet by clicking the x in the top right of the window, and you’ll have all of your previous tabs waiting for you next time you open your internet.
