  • Hello,

    i have a very, well let's say, infuriating problem with Opera.

    I mostly have a main window in which i store most of my daily websites i visit and some pinned tabs also.

    In recent times i made it a habit to drag one tab (let's say a youtube tab) from my main window to my second monitor, causing it to become its own window.

    Now when i accidentally (or unknowingly purposefully) close the main window when my second window is still open, all of my tabs in the main window are lost and cannot be recovered through ctrl + shift + t because they happened to be in another window.

    this happened to me 10 minutes ago and i'm still trying to calm down.

    Am i missing a function to recover them or are they gone for good?

    thank you for your attention.

  • Am i missing a function

    Yes. Near the minimize button of the window there is the recent tabs button. Its two horizontal lines with a down arrow under them. You can use this to reopen closed windows in Opera 30.

  • Holy mother of Balls you are right.

    Thanks so much, i always thought these only work for the specific window and their closed tabs respectively.

  • This does not work.

    If I close my main window (with most tabs) first, and then the second window, opera won't show all the "recently closed" tabs from the 1st window, leaving me upset ...

    This is a major bug, I lost my workflow several times because of this : pinned tabs, etc.
