How to restore entire window of tabs?

Description of the issue:
Is there a way to restore an entire window of tabs easily and quickly? In Firefox, it is done via History > Recently Closed Windows or Ctrl+Shift+N.

I had two Brave windows open, one with 5 tabs and one with 4 tabs (two of which were several months old). I closed the 4 tab window then the 5 tab window, rebooted my Win10 PC, then relaunched Brave. (I’ve learned I should exit brave without closing individual windows.) The 5 tab window launched but I couldn’t find a way to easily re-open the 4 tab window.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.29.79 Chromium: 93.0.4577.63 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I find this feature very helpful in Firefox for when I reboot or just want to refresh memory. I assumed all browsers had the feature but it looks like I’ve been burned by the assumption. Those 2 tabs in the lost window are old, I don’t recall what they were, and am unlikely to find them if I spend a lot of time going through months of history information.

Do you see anything of value under the menu → History?


If it’s not there, unfortunately you might be out of luck. (Agreed that Firefox’s handling of lost/closed windows is better.)

There are various extensions that can improve this, but as you pointed out, the manner in which you exit can reduce the need for this. Plus I’m trying to get in a better habit of ‘saving’ sets of tabs before they get out of control, the ‘Tabli’ extension works pretty well for this. It’s still a manual effort though, but it has worked well enough for me.

Would love to see better session management but probably will need to hit upstream Chromium and then work its way down to Brave.
