Google Chrome, the most popular browser among the internet users. And we should also agree with the truth that the Chrome browser is a major memory hog. We may find the system slow down sometimes. When we try to find a solution for that, we find the uninstalling of chrome add-ons as the most suggested solution. Doing a browser restart is also among the most recommended and useful solutions.
Restarting a browser normally will be done by just closing the chrome and then double clicking the application icon on the desktop. But this action will close all the browser tabs which we may find quite uncomfortable.
Google has a special URL that helps the users to do a quick restart without having to lose the tabs.
For restarting chrome here is a quick URL that helps you do that and that is chrome://restart. Just copy and paste this URL on your browser’s search bar. Then press enter and it will just close all the browser tabs and will restart the browser again with all the tabs that are previously opened.
If you restart your browser a lot, then there is a need to make this web page as a bookmark and that will help you to quick restart the browser with just one simple click.
Here is how you can add it to the bookmarks:
- Open the Google Chrome browser and hit CTRL + D keys which will open bookmark window.
- Enter the name of the bookmark that you wish to keep, for example Restart.
- Then click on the edit button available in the bottom of the tab.
- Now copy and paste chrome://restart this URL in the URL box and then click on save.
That is it you are done with the setup and you can now easily restart the browser without the fear of losing your tabs.
