Continue where you left off not working on Chrome

Continue where you left off

Google Chrome is a browser loaded with many features. A very useful feature is the Continue where you left it functionality. It is available on all browsers based on the Chromium engine. This means that if you use the new Microsoft Edge based on the same Chromium engine or the Opera browser, you will be able to use this feature. This feature allows you, when you open the Web browser, to reopen all open tabs the last time you used the web browser. The reasons why this feature does not work are vague, but some methods can help you solve the problem.

How to continue where you left it in the Chrome browser

Open Chrome> Settings> On startup. Here you have 3 options:

  • Open the new tab
  • Continue where you left off
  • Open a specific page or set of pages.

Select the desired option and you are all together.

Continue where you left it do not work on Chrome

Sometimes the Continue where you left it option does not work the way you want it. If you are experiencing this problem on your Windows 10 PC, try the following suggestions:

  1. Disable and then re-enable the feature.
  2. Allow the web browser to run in the background.
  3. Reinstall the web browser without losing any user profile data.

1) Disable and re-enable functionality

Open the settings page of your web browser.

For the menu of Start, select either Open the new tab or Open a specific page or pages.

Close your web browser.

Reopen the browser and from the same page, select Continue where you left it.

This should solve the problem.

2) Allow the web browser to run in the background

Due to restrictions on the web browser, it may not be able to save the browser status when it is closed by the user.

You can enable the web browser so that it can run in the background.

This will allow it to save this state even after it is closed and could allow this feature to work.

3) Reinstall the web browser without losing any user profile data

There may be problems with the installation of the web browser. So, you may need to uninstall and then reinstall.

But that would erase all the data from your browser. To avoid this, we will first have to save all the user profile data.

To do this, open the following location in the file explorer:


Find the named directory after your Chrome browser and open it.

Inside of User data folder, copy all the directories you have found and keep them in a safe place.

Now you can uninstall the web browser, get the latest version on their official website and install it like any other software.

Move all the files back to the same location we saved from Local folder.

This should solve your problem and your data would be as it was.

I hope this helps you fix the error.
