Hello,
Is there a program that will remember files and folders I had open when I logoff and then reopen them when I log back in?

More about : reopen files automatically logoff restart

The easiest way to do that is to use "Sleep" instead of "Shutdown".

Thanks for the reply, but I was thinking more along the lines of having to do a restart after a crash or a windows update. I normally don't shutdown or restart unless I am forced to, I just lock the computer.

OK, aside from Explorer, I don't know of a way to have the applications restart automatically with the same documents that were open at shutdown.

Anyone else?

what sort of programs are you losing?

there are certain programs that will remember what you've been doing within them (opera web browser, openoffice) but i don't think an independent program can save that info to re-launch programs when you log in.

I haven't encountered something that does what you want either. You may instead use the recently opened documents for the recent files you've accessed but it is quite limited.

Thanks for the responses, I knew it was a long shot when I asked, but you never know what's out there. What I normally run up agaist is having 3 or 4 pdfs open, several spreadsheets, docs, .txts and other misc. folders open. I was hoping that there was a program that would remember everything I had open at the moment of logoff or restart so I wouldn't have to write eveything down to remember what I had open.
