Did you accidentally close your browser and it wasn’t set to restore the pages that were open last? Instead of being frustrated, simply use a command line switch for Chrome and restore the previous session. I do this enough that I went ahead and made a Restore Session shortcut on my desktop that sits next to my regular Google Chrome shortcut.
To do this from a command prompt, use one of the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\
where username is the username whose profile contains the Google Chrome installation.
To create a shortcut:
1. Copy the shortcut for Google Chrome and paste it on the desktop.
2. Rename the shortcut to Restore Last Session.
3. Right-click the new icon and select Properties.
4. In the Target textbox, go to the end of the path and after chrome.exe, insert a space and input the following:
5. Click OK.
Now you have a way to restore the last session, regardless of the way you have configured Google Chrome to startup.
