Browser tabs have changed the way most of us use the Internet because they allow us to open multiple websites during the same browsing session.

But it's really easy to get carried away by opening too many tabs, each of which takes memory, so it’s critical to close those unneeded tabs to prevent your browser from becoming slow as a slug.

But, haven't you inadvertently closed the wrong tab on occasion, making you have to wade through your History trying to figure out what you still want to read?

Well this tip is the solution for the errant closure of the wrong tabs.

The next time it happens to you, just hold down the Ctrl & Shift keys in any browser, then tap on T as in Tom.

The last tab you closed will automatically reappear in all of its glory without the hassle of searching through your browser history.

If you need to restore more than one of the closed tabs, just keep repeating the Ctrl, Shift T key combination & they will reappear in the order you closed them!
