Despite the fact that Chrome is the market holder and the most used browser in the world, it still has some things that can be deal breakers. Namely, if you accidentally close Chrome with multiple tabs open, it will, well, just close. No warning, nothing at all. There’s no official way to make Chrome ask when closing multiple tabs.
One standard feature, available on other browsers, that was frequently asked for and never delivered is the Close all tabs prompt. Even though Google delivered a plethora of features, stability improvements, and better resource-usage over the years, this feature never saw the light. But, don’t worry, we got your back. There’s a way to make Chrome ask when closing multiple tabs.
How do I stop Chrome from closing multiple tabs?
1: Open a specialized website with a script
- Open Chrome.
- Navigate to the specialized website with the script that prevents closing before the confirmation. You can find it here. It’s ad-free.
- Right-click on the aforementioned website’s tab and Pin it.
- Now, every time you try to close all tabs, you’ll be prompted with the question. No more accidental closing from Chrome.
2: Restore closed tabs with a shortcut
- Open Chrome after you’ve abruptly closed it with multiple tabs open.
- Press simultaneously Ctrl + Shift + T and you’ll get all previously-closed tabs open again.
- You can also press Ctrl + H and open them from the History section.
We can only hope that Google will add this feature in the future. Although, based on the fact that it was asked for back in 2008. Yeah, you’ve read it right. In the meanwhile, hope these alternative suggestions helped you.
