To enable or disable the Google Chrome crash restore feature, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. Click on the three-dot menu icon at the top-right corner of the browser window.
  3. From the dropdown menu, click on "Settings."
  4. In the Settings tab, scroll down to the bottom and click on "Advanced" to expand additional options.
  5. Scroll down further until you find the "System" section.
  6. Toggle the switch next to "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" to enable or disable it.
  7. If you want to disable the crash restore feature, make sure the switch is turned off (grayed out).
  8. If you want to enable the crash restore feature, ensure the switch is turned on (blue).


Note that the crash restore feature is enabled by default in Google Chrome. By toggling this setting, you choose whether Chrome should restore tabs and reopen windows after a crash or when you reopen the browser.
