Reopen/Restore windows from last session in Safari

safari reopen windows from last session

If you ever find that Safari crashes, blame Flash. Ok all jokes aside, if Safari has crashed in the midst of browsing the web, you can restore your last session and all its windows, tabs, and URL’s just by:

  • Go to the History menu
  • Scroll down to “Reopen All Windows from Last Session”

This has saved me all sorts of stress and headaches when Safari crashes with important tabs open. Try it out the next time you have browser failure.

    This does not work in Windows version of Safari. There is no History menu – History is in the Bookmarks folder.
