So I had a massive amount of tabs/windows open in Google Chrome, went away for a bit, and Google Chrome had closed. I reopened Google Chrome, which gave me no option to restore the session despite being set to “Continue where I left off”. I did some Googling, which suggested I go to the C:Users(username)AppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser DataDefault folder and Rename the Last Tabs/Last Session files to Current and forcequitting Chrome and reopening. However there are no files with these names in this folder, what could the issue be?
Don’t take my word for it, but if I had to guess, after a recent update what used to be Last Tabs/Last Session is now kept within the “Sessions” folder of the same directory. It should have files named “Session_(series of digits)” and “Tabs_(series of digits)”, and they appear to contain the links to tabs I had open during my last session. No idea how to use that to restore them though, other than manually, I didn’t personally try to rename them.
UPDATE: I tested renaming the files, and it seems to successfully restore the last session. Interestingly, the older pair of files seems to also contain links from the session before last, though I have no idea how to restore those.
