It's: Is there a way to copy the file paths of ALL active windows' opened files?

It was closed because it was vague and a bit silly-worded and not clear enough, and also had some inaccurate research.

I think I've fixed it now, and it is completely clear. And I believe it's a very useful question, if you read the context I link to you'll see how the scenario and solution (if someone can find or point to one) would be very useful indeed for windows users!


just minor suggestion still to add to the question. Why did twinsplay implementation not work for you? (It is actually in the answer at the other thread, the "all or nothing" problem ?) Whatever it is, put that IN the question (not link). . The next suggestion I would make is "What Function Do You Want Exactally" for all programs to re-open with all files that were opened to them back in again? You did use the word ALL in the title :-). Sometimes setting everything back exactally would put you right back where you started. It raises interesting ideas, and is an interesting question. –  Psycogeek Mar 23 '12 at 4:42
I'm pretty sure it's not possible to achieve this with all documents, and programs need to either tell the OS what documents are open (e.g. the API used to show a program's recent files in Windows 7) or the tool needs to have support for specific applications. Given the edits and example provided, voting to reopen. –  Daniel Beck Mar 23 '12 at 6:42
I'm pretty sure for example that you won't get paths to source code files opened in Eclipse. –  Daniel Beck Mar 23 '12 at 6:50
