Google Chrome: Keyboard Shortcut to Re-open last closed Tab Software & Sites 21 MAR 2013

google chrome internet browserI literally only discovered this awesome keyboard shortcut the other day, and seeing that this is the place I come to in order to write things down so that I don’t forget it, here I am.

Now we all know the wonderful Ctrl + T keyboard shortcut that opens up a new tab, and probably the slightly lesser know but just as useful shortcut of Ctrl + L which jumps the cursor to the address bar.

However, the one that I didn’t know about was Ctrl + Shift + T which automatically re-opens the last closed tab.

And do you know how many times I accidentally close a tab!!

Seriously useful shortcut and from what I understand, it works on both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Can’t comment on Internet Explorer because I haven’t owned a machine with that on for quite a while now…
