hi, I am using Gmail at the moment in PWA and it's really good. however I encounter that Edge doesn't remember the message windows that I have been opening ( including emails, Draft compose email. So when the Edge crashed, or if I accidently close all Edge , I cannot re-open the draft windows or email windows I have been reading. 

 

are there any solution to remember and auto restore the tabs / windows ( Just like in Edge browser ) in PWA ?

 

thanks everyone

Hey @minimalistdave ,

 

Thanks for the feedback. For PWAs, we have what's known as the "Start URL" which is where we always navigate after the app has been closed down. We do have some work in our backlog to allow for the scenario you want, but it likely won't happen for a little while yet...
