Set Chrome to Continue Where You Left Off

Have you ever had many tabs open in Chrome and accidentally closed Chrome or shut down your device to discover you lost all those tabs you worked so hard to open? There is an easy setting that will make Chrome open all the tabs you had the next time it starts up. Follow these steps to never lose those tabs again! Also, give "Pinning Tabs" a shot as well!

*Note: If you do these settings on your PC/Mac, they will transfer to your Chromebook.
