Hi, I have not been able to get this extension to work properly. When i use the alt+x shortcut what happens is a tab re-opens but it always only opens the "about blank" tab (a blank page) :( instead of the last closed tab, please advise - Many thanks

This will be looked into. A quick test is to open two tabs that are both on actual pages, close one and then hit "alt-x" and see if it opens "about:blank" or the last tab that was closed.

Also, what OS are you running and what version of IE (beta or final)?

Thank you,

Hi and thanks for replying. When trying as you suggested the tab that opened was still "about blank". Not quite sure what happened but I have since uninstalled this add-on and then reinstallled and it all seems to work fine now! :roll: I am using windows XP and IE7 final release. Thanks for your help :)

I have just installed OpenLastClosedTab and this seems like a very nice piece of freeware, thank you. The problem I am having is that I can't get the icon to display at all. I know it works because Alt-Q will activate the last pages although I suspect I can't do anything else without the icon. There is mention of a quick tab feature. I can't use Alt-X because that is already taken by RoboForm.I am running this with Vista 32 and IE 7.06

If you don’t see the button in your toolbar, please do the following:

1. Right-click next to the Home button in the IE toolbar.
2. Left-click on Customize Command Bar.
3. Left-click on Add or Remove Commands….
4. Scroll through the Available toolbar buttons and click the icon named Open Last Closed Tab.
5. Click on the Add -> button in the middle to show it under the Current toolbar buttons.
6. Click on Close.
7. You should now see the blue with white arrows icon (you may need to click on the >> to see it)
8. Now, when you click on that icon, you will see the list of your previous tabs.

Thanks,
