    QTTabBar Scripting


    Does anybody know if it's possible to write a script for QTTabBar that gets all of the open tabs, restarts the explorer.exe process, and then re-opens the file explorer windows with all the tabs they had before closing (preferably in the same location)? Or perhaps some other way to achieve the same effect?

    I'm using QTTabBar 1040 with Windows 10 1809.

    It's quite possible to compile a script for that but, I wouldn't know the language.

    As an alternative, you could pin a Group shortcut to the Taskbar.

    Thanks for the suggestion about the group; I didn't even realize you could do that in QTTabBar. However, the problem with that is that I'd have to create a new group each time I need to restart the explorer.exe process since whatever tabs I have open in that moment aren't always going to be the same.

    Is there some way to automatically create a group that consists of only the active tabs?

    You can create and save a Group of any combination of Tabs...

    You can also have groups in the 'Middle Click Desktop Menu'...

    You can create as many Groups as you want and invoke them from numerous locations/methods.

    I figured out a solution to my original problem, but it's horribly implemented; it's the only thing I could get to work. It involves QTTabBar scripting, Autohotkey, and a batch script.
