This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский Français Español Deutsch Nederlands Српски Українська Português Български 简体中文

Startup options for Vivaldi are configured in Settings > Startup > Startup with section.

Last Session

With this option selected, the browser will open with the Tabs and Windows that were open last time you closed Vivaldi;

When the browser is set to open with the last session, a good option to make it go faster is to Lazy Load the tabs. That way only the active tab is loaded and other Tabs will fully load only when you go to them.

Furthermore, in case you’ve set the browser to open with the Last Session, but for some reason your previous tabs were not restored, click the Closed Tabs button on the far end of the Tab Bar or in the Window Panel to view and reopen recently closed Tabs and Windows.


The browser will open with the page you’ve chosen as your homepage in Settings > General > Startup > Homepage.
