How to remember all opened windows when you close two windows of opera?

  • I use a dual monitor setup at home and sometimes I have something going on the secondary monitor while I use the main one. I like to have sometimes some music or video clip going on the secondary monitor while working on the main one.

    To do so, I usually end up using two open windows of the browser. Today, I minimized the secondary window and closed the main one. Now, I see that I made a terrible mistake because all my windows that were open on my main window are lost and I ended up with my Binging with Babish silly 1 million subscribers video instead of the actually important work stuff I wanted.

    Other than looking for those open websites on my history (which don't show all tabs because not all of them were accessed today), how else can I retrieve (or prevent from losing) those tabs?

    Thank you.

  • As far as I know, Opera only remembers the last closed window.

  • Any add-on that might come in mind?

  • Sorry if this response is too late, but my suggestion would be to install the Session Buddy add-on from chrome web store as that tracks multiple windows, not ideal but could provide a solution

  • Also possible to close all widows at once using Exit from the menu.

  • I've been stung by this same thing. I just try and be careful about it when I have a 2nd instance of Opera going.

  • I always use keystrokes Ctrl+Shift+T, will return to the most recently closed window

  • The tab menu retains the closed windows between restarts, but maybe only if you have "Continue where you left off" set for startup.. It's the button next to the minimize button. The next time this happens, just reopen Opera and reopen the closed window from the tab menu button, or from O Menu -> History.
