How to Remember and Restore The Last Session in Ubuntu 14.04

remember last opened apps

Quick tutorial shows how to save current session status so that Ubuntu remembers and automatically restores the current running applications at next login.

This can be done by a simple graphical configuration tool called Dconf-Editor. So first click the link below to bring up Ubuntu Software Center and install the tool:

[ac-button color=”blue” size=”large” url=”apt://dconf-editor”]click install Dconf-Editor[/ac-button]

Once installed, launcher dconf-editor from the Dash or the Launcher.

When it opens, navigate to org -> gnome -> gnome session in the left pane. Then enable ‘auto-save-session’ by checking the box.

That’s it! Next time you login, the current running applications will be restored automatically.
