Dear PC Doctor:

Sometimes, when I’m using the internet, I accidentally close tabs and windows that I realize I still need.  I do a lot of extensive searching, and I can’t always retrace my steps and find the same page.  It’s frustrating!  Can you help?

Signed,

Dear Lost:

Yes!

There are two easy tools you can use to quickly and easily get back to browser pages you have accidentally closed.  One is to look at your browsing history.  All of the pages will be listed there (unless you have your preferences set to never save history).  Another is to use the keyboard combination CTRL + SHIFT + T.  Each time you hit it, another recently closed tab will re-open in your browser.  Lost no more!

Until next time,
Happy computing!
