Should I inadvertantly close a web site I was working on is there a quick way of restoring it other than retyping the address in bar and waiting for it to load again.

Nope, nothing like that as far as I know. Thx for popping back.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Several.

Look in History (messy to my mind).

Save it in Favorites.

Save it as a button in the Favorites bar (if you use it often).

Depending on what you are doing the Back and Forward buttons can be useful.

Open a new tab, if the site isn't in the 'your most popular sites' list, click the down arrow next to 'reopen closed tabs' & see it it's listed there.

If the page has to re-download when the URL is re-typed,
then it will have to re-download by any of the suggested
alternatives. All you save is the typing (which of course is
a significant savings for the vast majority of URLs, but on
the other hand, I find it hard to believe you don't already
avoid typing URLs in nearly all situations, unless you are
new to the Internet. Select, Copy, and Paste.)

Many web pages refuse to be stored in your cache, so
they must re-download every time you request them, even
if it was just downloaded a moment before.

Another way (amplified version of Jeff Root's suggestion):

Swipe the address then hit Ctrl + C keys (Copy). When you want the page back highlight the address line then hit Ctrl + V (Paste) keys. That will restore the address without need to retype if you haven't copied anything else in the meantime. To avoid the latter, copy it into NotePad instead then highlight it from there to paste it back.

Thank you all.

Perhaps I did not make myself clear enough. My fault.

I am talking about instance when I close, say, this page by mistake and end up on desktop with nothing open. ie No opportunity to use back arrows or any copy and save functions. Yes I could go through the start menu and retrieve but I was hoping there might be a simple undo function on the mouse that I had overlooked.

I shall just have to be more careful when closing sites when I mean to go back a page.

The browser History is usually the easiest way to recover
in that situation, if you have some idea what the website
and webpage were titled. Since the history for each day
is stored in alphabetical order rather than chronological,
you can't just select the one at the bottom.
