Default Reopens Windows Explorer Folders After Reboot

Basically what the title says. I like to use suspend most of the time, but whenever I reboot I lose all the opened Windows Explorer folders I had...

Want an easy way like "Continue where you left off" on Chrome. Easy restore closed windows would be nice too.

I found some software like UndoClose by Googling, but don't know if they work with Windows 10 64-bit or after reboot.

By suspend, you mean hibernate, or is it different?

You can use hibernate or sleep, to restore the computer as it was, with all the windows as it is.

In Firefox, there is the option to save the open tabs and quit, so when you open it next time, even after reboot, the same tabs will open. You have to set that option from the about : config though.

Must be there in Chrome too.

Is that not one of the options of Explorer ??
I use a different one and it certainly is in mine.

Like I said, whenever I reboot I lose all the opened Windows Explorer folders I had.

And I already stated I want an easy way like "Continue where you left off" on Chrome.

TBH, I'm quite disappointed right now. Windows Explorer is not Internet Explorer BTW.

I have high expectations of Gizmo's. Anupam's basic misunderstanding of my writing nevertheless struck a nerve, whether anyone likes it or not. And your vague response didn't clarify anything. I'm sorry, but that's the truth. Explanation over.

I am sorry for the misunderstanding and misreading on my part.

I am sorry for not able to meet your high expectation of Gizmo's.

BTW, you should try hibernate or hybrid sleep instead of suspend/sleep.

No need to apologize, we all make mistakes. I overreacted, and I'm sorry for that as well.

I wish I could sleep or hibernate all the time, but sometimes you need to reboot. Hybrid sleep is the same as reboot in this case.
