Unable to reopen closed tabs in Chrome - what have I done?

Posted 22nd Sep
Looking for some technical help please. I use chrome and for some reason it has started not allowing me to restore close tabs when I accidentally shut chrome down. When I go to "restore tabs" its greyed out and doing it using keystrokes produces the same result. Internet search suggests this is a recognised issue but the fixes are old and the product has since been upgraded so I can’t follow the instructions. Does anyone know a) How I can restore and b) If I cannot what I might have done (possibly put on a privacy setting somewhere which doesn’t allow me to restore tabs?) so I can take this off. I often accidentally shut the whole page rather than an individual tab so really need this function. Thanks.

have you look in your history setting, and press it there or tried to restart your machine
You’re not using incognito by any chance are you?
That's odd, ctrl + shift + t usually works for me.
Check task manager to see if any instances of chrome running in background and shut them down
Have you got 2 running? if you shut down the wrong one (with all your tabs open) the new one will always open blank
