How to open a recently closed window?

  • Hello,
    as it says in the title I can't open the recently closed window.
    I had two Opera windows, one with 1 tab and one with about 7 tabs. They have been closed and when I ran Opera again only the 1-tab window opened, I can't find a way to open the second window, where I had pretty important stuff. Is it even possible?

    (sorry for my bad English, it's hard to make a good sentence when I'm still learning)

  • Always state your version of the browser.
    Just in case it matters*:)*

  • It's 30.0.1835.125, probably the newest.

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

  • Continue where I left off only works for all windows if you go to the Opera menu and exit the browser in one go. If you close the windows one at a time it only saves the last one left open.

    You can reopen windows via the Recent tabs menu. Its the funny icon next to the minimize button in the upper right of the window. Ctrl+Shift+T also works but only if the browser hasn't been exited and reopened IIRC.

    You can also check your browser history. The easiet way to get in there is to click the History link at the bottom of the speed dial.

  • Thanks for your reply, but that doesn't work 😞
    I tried Ctrl+Shift+T earlier which didn't do anything for me and it still does not. That magic arrow aka "Recent tabs menu" shows only the tabs which are opened at the moment and nothing more for the reason I don't know. I guess I'll have to dive into the history, but some tabs were opened about half a year ago. That's gonna be fun...

  • For me the recent tabs menu shows my last 3 windows, my last 10 closed tabs in the current window, and all open tabs in the current window, in that order.
