Possibility of continuing the game

Hello.

I recently closed the chess.com window by mistake. When I reopened the chess.com, I couldn't go back to the game I was already playing and I lost for "disconecting". Is there a way I can go back to the game I was playing or is lost forever?

You can go back to daily games but live games are pretty unforgiving of disconnects.

They used to allow a short window to reconnect but people seem to report that they are unable to reconnect despite only doing things like checking their messages on a phone..

Well, that sucks. I should be allowed to go back to a game I closed by mistake or something like that. It's frustrating to not be able to go back.

Maybe I'm confused, but are you complaining about what happens when you make a mistake or do something dumb? Total ...pro...move

I don't understand. You're talking about closing the chess.com game by mistake or doing a mistake during the game?

Because I'm talking about closing the chess.com game by mistake and not be able to go back to the game I've been playing

If you close the window by mistake, you made a mistake. You lose. Going forward, be more careful

This is something else. Is not like I moved a piece on a wrong square and I lost it, or I haven't seen a checkmate or another thing. Is something which is not chess-related and should be fixed
