If you want the browser to load the last session instead, you need to make a change to the configuration first. The easiest way to do that is to enter in the address bar of the browser and select the Reopen the pages that were open last on the settings page that is opening up.

Unlike Session Manager (an extension for Google Chrome and Firefox to save sessions of your opened tabs and windows), it remembers the setup of all opened tabs and Google Chrome windows, including the size and location of the window. Once the windows setup has been saved, you can restore it with a single click.

Since it saves the URLs, as well as, location and size of windows, you can set up the windows just the way you want to reload them later. As mentioned earlier, you can change windows’ size, position on the screen, and tab order before saving the set up in order to reload the windows with specified size, tab order, and location.
