One of the most useful features of every major browser is the ability to restore previous sessions. In case of a crash, there’s nothing more annoying than losing all your important tabs. So, restoring recently closed tabs can be a lifesaver in some situations.

Microsoft Edge is not an exception. Microsoft was smart enough to implement this important option into its browser, and probably save some users from a heart attack.

There are actually a few options for restoring previous sessions in Microsoft Edge. And in this article, we’re going to explore them all.

How to restore previous sessions in Microsoft Edge

In case of sudden closing, Microsoft Edge will automatically restore previously opened tabs on the next launch, that’s how it’s programmed. So, if that’s your concern, you don’t need to set up anything. You can also access previously opened tabs by going to History.

How to open previous sessions in Edge on launch

If you want, you can set up Microsoft Edge to open previously closed sessions every time you launch it. That way, you’ll always be able to pick up where you left off. To do so, follow these instructions:

  1. Open Edge, go to the three-dotted menu and choose Settings.
  2. Now just click on Open Microsoft Edge with, and select Previous pages.

There you go, now every time you open Microsoft Edge, it will automatically load previously closed pages. Of course, in case you’ve missed something, a simple press of Ctrl + H will open the History tab where you can find everything you previously browsed. This, obviously, applies only for the standard browsing mode, not the Incognito mode.
