Windows XP, I am looking for a download that saves my current desktop session in terms of open windows.
To elaborate, I am working on a project that requires 4 files/programs and they are open on my desktop. I'm working on the project across windows when I have to get on a call or someone walks up to my desk and I have start opening other things to interact with them.
For simplicity's sake I only like to have things open that are relevant to my current activities.

So, when something happens and I have to switch gears to another project I would like to save everything thats currently open, close all windows and easily open when I want to start working on them again.

I don't know of anything that saves the state of every program window (data and system windows are no problem) in order to recreate the desktop in one step.

You sound like a possible candidate for what is known as virtual desktop environment in which while you don't close out of programs, you can switch to another desktop for other purposes and then switch back to the other desktop and pick up right where you left off.

This method would work in a continuous session environment (like a work day) but not of course if a reboot/turn off cycle was required.

A couple of programs (you can search for more if it looks good but you need something just a bit different) that do this are Microsoft Power Toy Virtual Destop Manager (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx) and Virtual Desktop 1.0 (http://www.free-soft.ro/desktop/desktop.html).
