Tech Tip – How To Restore Recently Closed Files in File Explorer

Accidentally closing a File Explorer window that you needed can be frustrating, especially if you were deep in a directory structure or working with multiple files. Windows allows you to quickly reopen a recently closed File Explorer window – here’s how:

– Right-click on the File Explorer icon in the taskbar.

– From the context menu that appears, select a recently closed folder or window under ‘Frequent folders’ or ‘Recent files’ to reopen it.

– This feature keeps track of your recent activity in File Explorer, making it easy to pick up where you left off.
