How do I reopen a tab in Internet Explorer (IE) after I close it?

In this post, we will show you how to re-open a closed tab in Internet Explorer.

Have you ever accidentally closed a tab in IE and been unable to find it or reopen it? The other day I was browsing Windows Marketplace and I came across this find. It is called IE Open Last Closed Tab. Let me show you how it works.

Simply use Internet Explorer like you normally do but whenever you accidentally close a tab, you can use the following hot keys:

  • ALT + X key
  • ALT + Q key

ALT + X will automatically re-0pen the last tab you closed. ALT + Q (Figure A) gives you a Quick Tab style view of the web sites you have closed. This tool also supports 64 bit and Internet Explorer 8. It is a great tool to add to your IE arsenal.
