    Anyone know of an application that can open recently opened documents, workspace, applications after a reboot, shutdown, or by calling them up? I'm specifically looking for something much like what OSX has, perhaps with more advanced features (ie: loading the workspace manually -save/restore-).

    The reason I'm looking for an application that can perform this is because I'm working on a research paper, and have 24 pdf, 14 docx, 8 pptx all located within different directories, and I prefer not having to open them manually.

    I've tried "cachemywork," but all that does is open recent "applications" but not open documents within the particular application.

    Use hibernation instead of shutdown. The system shuts down but everything in memory is retained and restored at next startup.

    Thanks. 7APL may just be what I need. It's unfortunate that no programs really exist for the Windows OS to create a real "Work Space," sadly, some developers claim their programs create a Work Space, but in reality all it is another empty virtual desktop. By definition a "Work Space" includes documents and applications where a user can open/launch on demand.

    Hibernation is not an alternative, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Just took a look at 7APL. It does not open any type of "document, txt file, pdf, etc.." its only function is to open applications associated to these types of files. It's a bit useless.

    It does open documents. As an example, I built a test profile that launches the two text files that come with the program. When I click "Launch Profile," both text files open.
