    As I try to exit Explorer 7, it asks me,

    "Do you want to close all tabs?' To reopen a
    group of closed tabs, right-click the tab row,
    and then click 'Restore Last Tab Group."

    But the 'Restore Last Tab Group' is not
    active during closeout. How do I make
    it active? Any suggestions?

    It's active after you re-open IE7. IE7 remembers the last tabs that were open.

    My IE7 behaves like Orville described. When I exit IE7, I receive the prompt
    "Do you want to close all tabs?' To reopen a group of closed tabs,
    right-click the tab row, and then click 'Restore Last Tab Group.". The
    option to "Restore Last Tab Group" is greyed out. In order to exit IE7, I
    must select the "Close Tabs" button; when I restart IE7, the tab group does
    not automatically appear as is the apparent design intention for "Restore
    Last Tab Group". If I manually save a tab group to favorites, I can recall
    it by manually selecting it at a later session but that is a different
    matter...

    Now I understand - The last set of open tabs IS saved automatically. After
    restarting IE7, if I then right-click on a tab and select "Restore Last Tab
    Group", voila - they appear!
    The warning message that appears when you close IE7 is worded incorrectly.
    It makes it sound as if you're supposed to select "Restore Last Tab Group"
    before exiting. Now that I know how it works, I like it.
