How to Continue where you left off Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Edge?

You might use Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or Edge as the default browser on your Windows 11 or 10 PCs. By default, all major web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Microsoft Edge, remove the previously opened tabs when you restart the browser. That means if you are working with 10-tabs and suddenly your browser closes, or your PC gets turned off, you need to open all those URLs from the beginning. However, you will have a difficult time if you don’t remember which web pages you were working on.

You can always reopen the previously opened tabs by pressing the Ctrl + Shift + T keyboard shortcut after launching your favorite browser. But, if you want to restore the previous tabs where you left off, you need to alter the settings in your favorite browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Opera, or Firefox.
