Recover Closed Windows(tabs) by accident

  • I know i should explain more (according to the guide/rules), but i guess it's all said in the title... It would be great to have a way to recover a full tabed window when it's closed by accident. Or at least ask for a confirmation like "are you sure you want to close X tabs?" (when closing, not when quitting). I've been through this problem a lot of times, i accidently click on the close cross and can never recover what i had on that window. The only way i got to recover them is by going through the history log, but many sites in that window could have a few days so finding it again is a lot of work.

    Hope you see this soon, and make something about it, would be a tiny but very helpful addition.
    Thanks for the great work also!

  • Wasn'r that window listed under the tab menu?

  • Which is the "tab menu"? the arrow next to the plus sign or the page that appears when opening a blank tab? or what?
    Thanks for taking the time to answer my friend.

  • Which is the "tab menu"?

    The icon with two lines and a down arrow next to the minimise button.

  • No, if i create new windows they're not listed in there. That button just shows me the tabs of the current window i'm.

  • Something is wrong then, because it should show tabs opened in all windows, including ones in other Opera installations if you have sync enabled.

  • Is there something i can do to fix it? My opera version is 38.0.2220.41, i looked in the config's options but seen nothing. Again, many thanks for your time!

  • What about the tabs page: opera://activity ?

  • Yes, in there I see it as tabs in different windows (or as separate groups), but there's no option to "restore last window closed" or such.

    Yep, there is no such option there. You should see it inside 'Recently Closed' in 'Tab Menu'.

    No idea why you aren't seeing it there. Those were normal windows?

  • Yes, those were normal windows, and not private or such. I looked around but there's no "recently closed" in "tab menu". Extremely rare.

  • I looked around but there's no "recently closed" in "tab menu".

    What do you see there after have closed a few tabs or Windows?

  • NO-one answered the fundamental question whether you can disable accidental closing by requesting confirmation?. Surely such and obviously helpful and presumably easy to program option should be in all browsers, it is in many other programs and some webpages ask as well if you really want to close the window? I've come to opera as chrome doesn't seem to have this option.... iF opera doesn't, does anyone know of a browser that does? thanks david.

  • whether you can disable accidental closing by requesting confirmation?.

    As you already should know by now, there is no closing/exit confirmation in Opera.

  • Did you try right clicking on any open tab and choose "Reopen last closed tab?" The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl-Shift-T.
