    Tried Ctl>Shft>T. That didn't work. I'm not understanding your message above about updating extensions. Please explain. I still don't know which extension would work best. The Great Suspender seems to work automatically behind the scenes - or was it Vivaldi? I've now lost track of where I'm at. But I need to retrieve my tabs, please.

    'Sleeping' Tabs also sign you out automatically on sites that address that security measure!

    Tabs suspended from memory as discussed previously.

    The developer states:

    This is the official issue for users trying to recover from tab loss due to an update of the extension, or following removal/disabling of the extension. This is the number one pain point of the extension and here I will attempt to address why this is an issue, and what you can do if affected by it.
    So if you disabled it or it updated in the background when you were using it then not having control over chrome extension updates might be the problem. Yet another reason to avoid Chrome in my opinion.

    That page by the develper is clear:

    What should I do if I have lost tabs?

    If you have lost tabs due to the extension being removed then refer to the section below entitled "How to recover lost tabs without The Great Suspender".


    If you have lost tabs due to the extension being disabled, then first re-enable the extension, and then refer to the section below entitled "How to recover lost tabs with The Great Suspender".


    If you have lost tabs but the extension still seems to be installed and running, then refer to the section below entitled "How to recover lost tabs with The Great Suspender".
    Confirm that you didn't try to disable it or uninstall it.

    Assuming that you didn't:


    How to recover lost tabs with The Great Suspender

    The extension comes with its own tab history management UI to help users recover from lost tabs. Go to the extension options page (from 'settings' in the popup or 'options' when right-clicking on the extension). Then in the settings sidebar click on 'Session management'. This will show you your most recent tab sessions. You can click on each session to see more detail on the individual windows and tabs it contains.


    To reload a session, simply click the 'reload' link. This will reload all windows and tabs in an 'unsuspended' state. If your session contains a very large number of tabs, then you might instead want to click 'resuspend' which will be much faster as it reloads the tabs in a suspended state.


    If for some reason the missing tabs are not in your recent sessions, then please follow the guide below for recovering lost tabs without using The Great Suspender.


    If you have access to system backups, you may be able to restore old 'recent sessions' from these backups. The recent sessions are stored in an IndexedDB database at Chrome/Default/IndexedDB/chrome-extension_klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg_0.indexeddb.blob/ and Chrome/Default/IndexedDB/chrome-extension_klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg_0.indexeddb.leveldb/


    EDIT: Forget that last part - it's for Mac's.

    Other than that type chrome://history in a new tab and see what is listed. Reopen anything that you can find if you need it.

    The keyboard shortcut for tab history is Ctrl+Shift+T, which should open the collection of tabs.

    If you’ve used the browser to open several other tabs since the problem then it's likely that the shortcut will not work.

    Then you can only open browser history and look through it to find relevant tabs that you wish to reopen.

    If you were in incognito mode then you are out of luck since there will be no history.

    On another note do you have a google account that you can sign into and check browsing history (if enabled)

    Vivaldi is a browser in it's own right.

    RE: The Great Suspender seems to work automatically behind the scenes

    It does if you don't configure the settings. As suggested it should be set to never auto suspend giving manual control. Anyway since there has been problems I suggest that you don't use it with Chrome.

    Type chrome://historyin a new tab - anything listed?

    Last resort is to try running this: ChromeHistoryView - View the browsing history of Chrome Web browser

    See if that can extract any visited URL's.

    Run that program linked above. In options choose "Chrome" and make sure the file path is correct. If not - point it at your Chrome\User Data folder.

    See what it finds. If it finds anything save the results into a text file.

    Will have to check back tomorrow. If all else fails you might have to try system restore:
