The quickest way to open tabs you just closed is by pressing the Ctrl+Shift+T keys simultaneously. Note that the ‘Shift’ button on some Chromebooks is only represented by a small arrow pointing to the top.

While pressing ‘Ctrl+Shift’, you may smash the ‘T’ key multiple times to reopen more closed tabs. This shortcut generally exists in Google Chrome and other Chromium browsers.

Always reopen tabs the last time Chrome closed

This one is not a trick, but rather a setting that would make Chrome always reopen recently active tabs from the last session. For example, if you were using YouTube, Slack, and Twitter and then abruptly closed the browser, Chrome will revisit these three pages automatically by the time you are launching the browser.
