How to continue where you left off on the Browser

When you leave reading a web page in between, it is evident that you would always want to start from the same place, especially when you are somewhere in the middle. However, most of the browsers offer the only solution to remember the URL or the page in the form of Bookmarks, which opens up the page next time, and you spend at least 2 minutes to find where exactly you left reading. Today, in this post, we will learn how to save those two minutes using extensions for Chrome and inbuilt settings in the browser.

How to continue where you left off on the Browser

The setting to change this is available on all browsers.

    1. Chrome
    2. Firefox
    3. Edge

As advice, makes sure not to keep a tab that just made a form submission, i.e., Payment. While you may not be charged, but it’s better to be safe.

Chrome Startup

  • Type chrome://settings in the address bar of the blank tab and hit enter.
  • Navigate to find the On Startup section.
  • Select the radio button of the option which says Continue where you left off

On Srattup Settings Chrome left off

Firefox Startup

  • Type about: preferences in the address bar of the blank tab and hit enter.
  • Navigate to find Srattup  under general
  • Select the radio button of the option which says Restore Previous sessions.

Firefox Startup settings

Microsoft Edge

Like Chrome, Edge offers the startup section where you can choose between opening a new tab, opening specific pages, or “Continue where you left off.” Make sure you do not close all the open tabs before closing. It would help if you closed the browser after saving anything which needs attention.

Edge Continue where you left

Open Edge Settings, and go to Startup. Select the left off option, and close the settings. To test, keep some tabs open and close Edge. Next time you reopen, it will load all the tabs. Some of the tabs are loaded only when you switch to them.

It’s rather easy to get back to the same place now with the option inbuilt into the browser.
