Closing Web Apps

If you are using some web applications with Chrome, it is highly recommended that you close the web applications first and exit your browser last when you close Chrome. That way, Chrome can correctly guess which tabs you want to open on startup.

Some users use the “create shortcut” feature, which save the direct link of the web page on the desktop. It is beneficial, but there is a problem. For some reason, it confuses the Chrome, and the “Continue where you left off” feature doesn’t work.

Instead of creating a shortcut, you can pin the tab, or you can also bookmark the page. So, if you pin the tab, every time you open Chrome, the webpage will open. For pin the tab, you can right-click on the tab and select “pin”. And if you want to bookmark the webpage, click the star icon on the right side of the address bar to bookmark the page.
