How to Restore Google Chrome Tabs After PC Shutdown

As a heavy internet user, Generally I deal with a lot of chrome tabs open at the same time. Most of the time I want to resume my work from where I left off. But the problem occurs when we have to close our laptop, I lose all of the tabs if I shutdown it. So, I have to leave my laptop in hibernate mode to preserve the chrome tabs. This method drains a lot of battery and also slows down the PC over time. Having said that, recently I found a way to restore Google chrome tabs even if we SHUTDOWN the PC.

Generally, my work involves a lot of research, so I prefer using this setting to resume previous chrome sessions as soon as I open the chrome browser.

This helps me pick up from where I left and also saves me tons of clicks.

First, launch your Google Chrome browser.

Now, click on three dots present at the upper right corner, and click on settings.
