Hello Şerban!

Thank you very much for your friendly quick answer. That actually seems like the correct way to continue - one of those many Linux-solutions I will discover while getting acquainted with the OS.

Just out of curiosity - would it be possible to turn off the computer completely (not hibernate it) and still get back to the original desktop configuration?

Cheers,

  Mike

Hiya!

1) Only the windows of one of the profiles are restored. A window opens under the other profile but it's only the base window. I have to go to History => Recently closed, select the latest window(s) and click Restore window. Not an impossible task but it would be sweet to have it done automatically.

2) All the windows are restored on the starting workspace, not on the ones they originally were on.

Hello, Mike! :)


Have you tried the "Hibernate" option?

Maybe this article will help you make a reasonable choice:

You can also test "Hybrid sleep".
Read here about it:

Best regards! :)

Hiya!

I just recently switched to Linux and was wondering about a very specific startup setup configuration I'd like to achieve. Apologies if this is the wrong forum to post in.

Here's the situation. I usually run quite a few Chrome windows, scattered around 4-6 different workspaces. In each window there are quite a few tabs, grouped, of course! All the Chrome windows are named in order to quickly identify them. The windows are also attached to different profiles, at the moment 2.

I'd like to be able to restart my computer so that all the Chrome windows are restored and moved to the workspace they were on when I shut down the computer. Unfortunately I'm not fully there yet. Chrome starts up when i log in again, but the following is lacking:

1) Only the windows of one of the profiles are restored. A window opens under the other profile but it's only the base window. I have to go to History => Recently closed, select the latest window(s) and click Restore window. Not an impossible task but it would be sweet to have it done automatically.

2) All the windows are restored on the starting workspace, not on the ones they originally were on.

So, I'm probably looking for some settings I haven't found yet. Any help in this matter would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

  Mike
