Google has recently decided to clean up the right-click menu in Google Chrome.

In Chrome 78,  Chrome removed the New tab, Close other tabs, Reopen closed tab, and Bookmark all tabs options from the Tab right-click menu.

While very clean, the change makes it difficult to find regular-used options such as Reopen Closed Tab.

As a Chromium user Microsoft inherited the changes, but thankfully the team decided to bring the options back, with the latest versions of the Edge browser still having the wider selection.

The change is pretty welcome, though it is notable that it is still possible to access Reopen closed tab by right-clicking on the tab bar itself.
