How can I re-open tabs or find their URLs after Chrome crashed?

star August 20, 2011

I had many tabs open in Google Chrome. One got frozen and froze the whole system. I ended up by closing that application using ‘end process now’ at Task Manager. What happened is all tabs got lost and can’t reopen them.

Please, please, how can I at least still find the URL address for all old tabs to be able to open them again?

    James Bruce: when Chrome crashes it doesn't *always* give you the message:  "chrome crashed, do you want to restore those windows". But both the Session Buddy extension and the Session Manager extension work well for me - I use both, because they work slightly differently and complement each other well.

    Thank you Jeff Fabish and ha14 for giving me new info.

    I must be missing something, becuase when Chrome crashes for me and I reopen it, it has a button that says "chrome crashed, do you want to restore those windows". Is this a theoretical question, or did you try and that option wasnt there. Perhaps you just missed it. Try again on purpose so you know what it looks like.

    shortcut key “Ctrl + Shift + T”, it will automatically open the closed tab with its content in a new Tab?.
    A web page auto-reloader can be of help? refresh reload extension

    If your browser isn't set to clear history on exit (and even then, with a crash it still may not) you should be able to go to tools (wrench button) -> history

    Optionally, you can shuffle through the last few TABS by right clicking on the current tab and selecting "reopen closed tab".
