I would like to set up a button or the combination of button to undo recently closed tab in Google Chrome.

I know on OSX you can do this, but I want it on PC.

Is there any way to make this option on PC in Google Chrome?

I am not sure exactly what you want but the key combination in Chrome to undo recently closed tab is:


If you right-click on the tab bar's background, you will see a context menu that gives this key combination as a hint:

Context Menu from Chrome

This not only works in Chrome, but also Firefox, Opera (pre-Webkit, too) and IE (8+). In reality, it is a de facto "standard" key combination on the PC. – mawcsco Jul 3 '13 at 20:54
That just opens a new tab, the poster wants to then select the latest 'recently closed' tab – Ian McClellan Jul 3 '13 at 21:10
Control+shift+tab opens the previously closed tab on my chrome browser. Control+tab opens a new tab. – Xavierjazz Jul 3 '13 at 21:17

You could do this with a keyboard macro and then find a way to bind it to a button:

Tab six times
Down arrow

At least, that works on my screen, maybe if you have different options on it will take more or less tabs...not very elegant.
