You have several options if you want to save all open tabs in your browser of choice so that you can access them at a later point in time.
Most browsers support session restore for instance which, when enabled, reloads all tabs open the last time you used the browser.
While that works well most of the time, it can have disastrous consequences if it does not as you may lose access to all or some of the sites.
Most web browser ship with options to save open tabs in a different way, and this guide provides you with instructions on how to do this in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi.
What more? All solutions are native meaning that you don't have to install a browser extension or extra software for it.
This can be useful for research sessions as well, especially if you want to keep what you have discovered so far to reopen the collection at a later point in time.
If you are using Internet Explorer, do the following to save all open tabs:
Basically, all open tabs are saved to the bookmarks in Internet Explorer from where they can be opened again.
Microsoft Edge, the default system browser of the Windows 10 operating system does not support this functionality.
If you are using Mozilla Firefox, do the following to save all open tabs:
Firefox saves all open tabs to a folder in the bookmarks. You may middle-click on the folder to open all sites saved in it at once.
Chrome offers the same functionality that Firefox offers.
Open all saved tabs with a middle-click on the bookmark folder.
The functionality is slightly different in Opera as it saves all open tabs to a Speed Dial folder instead of the bookmarks.
All websites and services are added in a new Speed Dial folder in the browser so that you can relaunch them individually when you open a new tab page in Opera and select "Speed Dial" from the menu at the bottom.
Vivaldi works similar to Firefox and Chrome but with the difference that you cannot pick a folder or location right now.
Now You: Do you use session restore or other functionality to save open tabs of the browser you are using?
