How to reopen the latest closed files Follow Answered ANONYMOUS Created July 19, 2006 13:21 I cannot find an option to reopen the latest files I had open, but did close. File->Reopen only shows a possibility to reopen projects.
CTRL + E
This will display a list of recently used files.

Ah, you do not know how happy you made me with this little typ! I am working
on a new project and have not got the directory structure in my head, and
was reloading and refinding the files I recently worked with time after
after time. :)
If someone googles for this in 2018+, the command on the mac is
Ctrl + 2 (^2)
The command on mac is:
cmd + e
The list of recently used files is not always helping you with latest closed files. You can close files without using them (by clicking the X on the tab, without activating the tab and this will not add the closed file to the list). A command like Ctrl+Shift+T in Chrome would be very useful.
Just found a menu entry that works exactly like Ctrl+Shift+T: Window / Editor Tabs / Reopen Closed Tab
You can probably assign a shortcut to it.
You may set the hot key by yourself, go to settings and type in search field "reopen closed tab", set your prefered hotkey

If it is the file you are currently working in, the easiest way to do this is to just navigate BACK to your previous cursor location:
ctrl + alt + <<left arrow key >>
Hope this helps,
