Windows 7: "restore folders at log on"

"restore folders at log on"

what i mean, "restore windows at log on" what i mean, is that since windows 98 there was an option... follow my steps in any of the windows instead of the new windows 7 build and you will see what exactly I mean.
note: auto hide sucks, i have to monitors and i dont mind other windows floating on top of the task bar, i would still like to disable the "always on top feature" of the start menu, and taskbar.

anyway,

step1) open explorer
step 2) if your menu is hidden , click organize> layout>then enable menu bar.
step 3) click on the menu bar, tools>folder options>view>
(if you scroll down you should see an option called, "restore folders at log on", witch would restore the folders you left open in your previous windows session.)

this option is taken out of windows 7 with every build after 7022.

Hi dsw274,

You're right, they must have taken the option away.

well how can I hack it to restore the windows. I remember before they had this feature at all, there was a program called rapid resume, and it enabled you to do so.but that program doesn't exist for windows 7

Yeah I remember the option 7000 but it didnt even work... I really, really hope they reimplement it asap, having program for that feels..... erm... weird, as the feature has been there for god knows how long.

Build 7100 Release Candidate still lacks this feature. Strange and disappointing. Anyone find out if it was relocated or just removed?

I exported the PersistBrowsers registry hive from Vista (attached) and imported the hive onto build 7100, however this simply creates a checkbox in the shell it does not enable the functionality. I presume the function has been removed from the DLLs.

I just had to dig this one up.
It seems they have implemented this feature in the RTM, I just tried it out and it works just fine

RTM=Release to Manufacturing
basically a final version that MS gives to PC manufacturers to install on new comps

if you want one, buy a new win 7 install disk or pc or..................you could check your favorite torrent sites
