How to Reopen the Last Browsing Session in Google Chrome Browser
This tutorial will show you how to set Google Chrome to open the New Tab page, your last browsing session, or a specific pages or set of pages on startup.
Chrome will also restore your browsing data and session cookies. Session cookies are the information that websites can use to keep you logged into sites. This can save you time from logging into your favorite sites every time after youíve restarted Chrome. However, itís recommended that you log out of websites when youíre using a public or shared computer.
If you would like Chrome to reopen all your pages from your last browsing session but discard session cookies and other site data, then go to Settings -> Show advanced settings -> Content settings (under Privacy) -> Keep local data only until I quit my browser.
