Reopen Recently Closed Tabs in Opera on Computer

Have you accidentally closed a tab in the Opera browser? Learn how to reopen recently closed tabs or pages and regain access to your browsing history.

The Opera browser can Reopen the last closed tab in the Tabs bar context menu, which can also be activated using the keyboard shortcut.

Alternatively, the closed tabs are also saved in the Opera browser’s History menu, which is accessible and helps in relaunching the accidentally closed website tab.

Note: Reopening last closed or recently closed tabs won’t work if you use the private browsing mode or just cleared browser history.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to reopen the recently closed tabs in the Opera browser.

Reopen the Last Closed Tabs

One of the easiest ways to reopen closed tabs on Opera is using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + T (on Windows) OR Cmd + Shift + T (on macOS). However, if you are uncomfortable with shortcuts, you can reopen the last closed tab option from the tabs bar.

  1. Launch the Opera browser on a computer.
  2. Go to the Tabs bar above the search bar and right-click for the context menu.
  3. Select Reopen the last closed tab command.

If you continue to hit the Reopen Last Closed Tab or keypress the shortcuts button, it will reopen all the recently closed tabs one after the other in the browsing sessions.

Reopen Closed Tabs from History

Thankfully, the Opera browser keeps a record of all the browsing history logs unless you’re on a private window or have cleared your browsing history. Here are the steps to reopen the closed tab from the History menu:

  1. Launch the Opera browser on your computer.
  2. Click on Opera opera logo for the menu list.
  3. Select the History menu.
    This will display a list of websites you’ve recently closed.

  4. Click to reopen the website or page from the History list.

Alternatively, you can also open the Opera browsing History section by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + H on your keyboard and clicking to open the closed tabs.

The benefit of using this method is that you can select any older website or page from your browsing history.

Bottom Line

Opera browser has provided us an option to reopen the recently closed tab immediately without much effort. It can be done simply with keyboard shortcuts or using the options menu.

Apart from the Reopen Closed tabs option, you can also use the browsing history to revisit the previously closed pages.
