Most people browse the Internet using different techniques, so a certain set of browser settings will not work for everyone. Google Chrome is a browser that takes this fact into consideration, as it allows you to customize the actions and options of the browser to suit your needs. For example, you can configure Google Chrome to open where you left off. This means that Google Chrome will open with the tabs that you were viewing when you last closed the browser, as opposed to opening with a specific home page or set of home pages. This is a great way to continue working on a project that you had to leave in the middle of. It is also a good way to check on someone that has been using Google Chrome on your computer.

Open Google Chrome How it Was Last Closed
If you find that you accidentally close your browser a lot, or that you always have to leave your computer when you are in the middle of something, then configuring Google Chrome to open where you left off is going to be a helpful setting. It will open with the tabs that were open when the browser was last closed, ensuring that you will not lose a helpful page that you were using and forgot to bookmark before you last closed the browser. Follow the directions below to learn how to set Google Chrome to open where you left off.
Step 1: Open the Google Chrome browser.
Step 2: Click the wrench icon at the top-right corner of the window, then click the Settings option at the bottom of the menu.
Step 3: Check the option to the left of Continue where I left off.
Step 4: Close the Settings tab. Note that you do not need to save your settings at all. They are automatically applied when you make the changes.
The next time you start Google Chrome, it will launch with the tabs that you had open when the browser was previously closed.
