    Restore opened windows via shortcut


    Is it a way to restore the opened windows like they were before via a shortcut after windows restart?

    There was a vertical bar at the right end of the Win7 Taskbar that gave a peek or toggled Minimize and Restore. The same is in Win10 albeit quite a bit slimmer. There's also a Show Desktop on the right-click menu of the Taskbar, when minimized it says Show open windows.

    Could you could use Hibernate instead of restart?

    Otherwise not really but there are some programs discussed here that will (partially) do what you want. Restoring open software after a restart event in windows - Super User

    Search 'File Explorer Options'/View tab/check 'Restore previous folder windows at logon'/Apply/OK
    (I'm almost positive you have to have 'Fast Startup' enabled.)

    We know that. You have to risk placing your machine into Hibernate and hope that it does not screw up when you power it back on.

    There are programs that will remember last known session stuff. There are two TSR type programs that you can download from majorgeeks.com. One is SmartClose, that you can download from majorgeeks.com. The other is Cache my work, which you can download from Cache My Work reopen your Apps after reboot - Home

    I am guessing that you missed the sarcasm part on that post.
