I use Chrome as a daily-basis browser. When I close my browser I prefer it to "continue last session", so, when I open it, my already open tabs are there and that's great.

The problem here is that Chrome saves the "session" and when I start Chrome it will load outdated content tabs instead of the fresh ones.

This is good for some occasions but for my personal use is bad (e.g. for Superuser I want the updated content on).

How can I force Chrome to refresh the content of my tabs when I open it?

  • @arieljannai I don't guess so. When I open Chrome my tabs are correct. I just wanna those tabs to refresh to get a current-time information. – CaldeiraG Apr 23 '18 at 13:19
  • Three things that it's worth checking - 1) This issue still occur if you disable all extensions, apps and background apps? 2) From a newly created Chrome Profile? 3) Try disabling the hardware acceleration (under advanced settings). – arieljannai Apr 25 '18 at 11:07
  • @arieljannai 1) Yeah, I also use several other computers (without login) and it seems a global setting; 2) Yes, see 1); 3) I tried but no effect – CaldeiraG Apr 26 '18 at 8:44
  • Others computers? It sounds really weird. Others computers that you're logged in to? Just others? What version of Chrome do you use? – arieljannai Apr 26 '18 at 17:45

The Google Chrome extension Reload all tabs reloads or refreshes all tabs, with a quick keyboard shortcut (ctrl+shift+r) which can be customized.

The extension Awesome Reload All Tabs Button adds a button that can be used to reload all tabs in the current Chrome window (or all Chrome windows).

  • This suits my needs (although with extensions but I'm fine with it). If anything more doesn't come out I'll pick this one. – CaldeiraG Apr 26 '18 at 8:47

There is the option of hitting F5 when you open chrome. This is the default Refresh for a given tab. Unfortunately, you would have to hit F5 for every tab that opens when you open chrome.

  • That is what I already do.. – CaldeiraG Apr 23 '18 at 19:27
