Never lose a webpage again with this simple trick

You know how easy it is to get lost on the internet. You start out with a single page open, maybe to do research for a school project or work. Suddenly, you’re deep into your search, with a lot of tangents and wrong directions along the way. You’ve got a dozen or so webpages open, and you’ve breezed through dozens more.

So, what do you do? You get your search back on track by closing all those websites when, panicked, you realize you closed the perfect site that had the information you need. You can search around for it, but you never quite remember the name of the site or keywords that might bring it back up in a search.

Don’t give up in frustration, as you’ve probably done countless times. There is a simple trick to retrieve the webpage you accidentally closed, whether you’re using a Windows computer or a Mac.

To reopen a page you closed in Windows, hit: Ctrl+Shift+T. For Mac, hit: Command+Shift+T.
