Recover browser session after a Google Chrome crash

Google Chrome makes recovering from browser crashes as painless as possible by restoring webpages from your previous browsing session. Follow these steps:

  1. After Google Chrome crashes, open a new browser window.
  2. Find the restoration message at the top of your window: "Google Chrome didn't shut down correctly. To reopen the pages you had open, click Restore."
  3. Click Restore.

Help us prevent crashes by permitting Google Chrome to automatically send usage statistics and crash reports back to Google.
