On Mac : ⌘ + Alt + Eject
On PC : Windows + L
2. To reopen an accidentally closed tab
You've just closed a valuable tab? Do not panic. No need to go through your history, reopen the tabs (but also the windows) recently closed in a snap of fingers.
On Mac : ⌘ + Z if you use Safari; ⌘ + Shift + T for Chrome
On PC : Ctrl + Shift + T
