18.4 Saving Window Configurations in Registers
You can save the window configuration of the selected frame in a
register, or even the configuration of all windows in all frames, and
restore the configuration later.
- C-x r w r
- Save the state of the selected frame's windows in register r
- C-x r f r
- Save the state of all frames, including all their windows, in register
Use C-x r j r to restore a window or frame configuration.
This is the same command used to restore a cursor position. When you
restore a frame configuration, any existing frames not included in the
configuration become invisible. If you wish to delete these frames
instead, use C-u C-x r j r.
