Accidentally closed the wrong tab in your browser? You can get it back by using the CTRL + SHIFT + T shortcut key combination to quickly re-open that tab. In fact, if you press the shortcut key again, it’ll open the tab you closed before that, and so on.
You can also just right-click on another tab and use the “Reopen closed tab” option, which is also available in all three browsers — note that we’re using Internet Explorer 10, and if you’re an IE user on Windows 7, you need to upgrade.
This should work for all the major browsers — Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. It might work in Opera or Safari too, but we don’t use either of them.
