Reopening closed tabs in browsers is an extremely handy feature especially when you have dozens if not hundreds of tabs open. What if Windows 7 had this feature too? Say you accidentally closed a folder (or an application) you just found after a cumbersome search but now even thinking of searching the folder all over again is really annoying. This is where a new app kicks in.
UndoClose is an extremely light-weighed software which is inspired by the undo close tab functionality found in modern browsers in Windows 7. It is developed in-house by AddictiveTips. The app currently features infinite history and the author says that the memory usage of the app depends upon the number of applications closed in a session.
The beauty of UndoClose lies in the fact that you can reopen the closed apps and explorer windows in the exact same order as you closed them, by using the hot keys Ctrl+Alt+F and Ctrl+Alt+A for Explorer windows and applications respectively.
Another good thing which it performs as expected is that it sits quietly in the tray and the hotkeys work brilliantly as advertised. Of course you can customise the hotkeys to your preferred key combination as well.
Although this release is almost perfect and bug free, here is what we found missing and would like to see implemented in the future releases
- It only re-opens closed applications and not the files which were being worked-on within those application before getting accidentally closed. This feature would make it a killer app and we wish the developers take a note of it.
- Lastly, support for Windows Vista and XP would be more than welcome.
