Keeping windows saved upon shutdown

Alright... I have been looking for a program that will keep my open windows saved when I logoff or shutdown the computer so that when I turn it back on or log back on the windows will reappear... I don't even know if that is possible there but if anyone has any ideas it'd be awesome

Hello Zer0plain, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like this may be what you are after.

Hope this helps,

Thx for the welcome Brink. Does this only work for folders or will it keep programs open also? I'm looking to keep my entire desktop open, folders, programs, etc.

It's been a while since I used it, but I believe it's only going to be for a folder. For what you want, it may be better to use sleep or hibernate mode instead. When you resume from sleep or hibernate, Windows will open back exactly to how it was before entering sleep or hibernate.

It wouldn't change if I have multiple monitors and desktops would it?

No, it would be the same.

Keeping Windows Genuine
More often than once I have started up my machine and had Windows tell me that it failed the genuine test. Sure, most often I can just restart and all is OK, but that is a pain. Isn't there a way, once determined to be genuine to "lock" that in to the installation? Regards, Chuck Billow
