Reopen last closed window on Gnome

In Firefox, you can press ctrl-shift-T to open the last closed tab, is something like that possible for Windows in Gnome?

There is not, but using wmctrl, you can grab the PID's of open windows, which you can use to re-open a closed window.

sudo apt install wmctrl

wmctrl -l

Reopen with

ps -o cmd= (REPLACE-WITH-PID)
