    FF provides a way to re-open a web page if I close it accidentally. So does Chrome. Is there an equivalent capability in Opera? If so, how?

    I am using Opera and Ctrl-Shift-T does not open the most recently closed web page. Ctrl-Shift opens my home page, and Ctrl-Shift-T opens a blank page.

    However,

    IF you go to TOOLS you will see a menu option that is called HISTORY. Clicking on this will bring up a list of visited websites. Personally I find the way this is organized less than ideal since for most of the sites the ordering is alphabetical rather than by most recently visited (all visited sites used to be most ordered by recently visited but someone decided to "FIX?" this). You can click on each site to open a list of pages that have times associated with them and try to find your most recent one but thats it.

    Which version are you using? I have Version 9.63 Build 10476 and as noted above this does not work for me.

    Click on the "Closed Tabs" icon located at the top right corner to select and re-open your closed tab or tabs :p

    For version 9, click on the trash bin icon located at the top right corner to see your closed tab(s) and select to re-open.:p

    I do not have a trash bin at the top right (as you can see in my attached screen shot).

    Ctrl+Z works for me while Ctrl+shift+T did not.

    Upper right hand angle, do you use that "X" inside a circling arrow? If you click it, in Opera 10, it will show you the pages of your current session that you closed and you can browse among them and open the one you want.

    A plethora of helpful solutions -- shift-ctl-t and ctl-z and "x in a circling arrow" -- they ALL work!

    Thanks to all who joined the pow-wow. (May your pockets be heavy and your hearts be light)

    P.S. o_O I wonder why Opera has multiple shortcuts for doing the same action......

    Opera initially insisted on its own set of shortcuts. Now that it's caved in and uses the same ones as other mainstream browsers, some of the old ones are still maintained for "backward compatibility". At any rate, they keyboard shortcuts are customizable.
