How to Quickly Reopen Multiple Tabs in a Floating Window

woman on logos learning to open multiple tabs

A Logos user recently contacted me with this scenario:

I like placing numerous tabs in a floating window that resides on a second monitor. Sometimes, however, I accidentally close the window, thereby closing all those tabs. Is there a way to reclaim the tabs without opening each one individually?

Fortunately for him and us, the answer is yes!

Look carefully at the images and notes below as I recreate his situation:

  • A Bible is open on the main Logos desktop (A)

  • A floating window is open housing three commentary tabs (this floating window could reside on a secondary monitor or “behind”/ “on top of” the main Logos window) (B)
  • The Close window button is mistakenly clicked (C)

  • I return to the Logos desktop housing just the Bible (D)

  • I right-click on the open tab (E) and select Reopen closed tab (F)

  • The floating window housing three tabs instantly returns (G)

If we had closed one tab at a time, the Reopen closed tab option would only reopen one tab at a time. Since, however, we closed all three tabs at once (in a floating window), all three tabs reopen at once!

So if you accidentally close tabs or windows, please don’t panic; just remember this power-user trick!
