Hi
I would like that caja remembered the folders and tabs that were open when I close the window, so when I reopen caja it starts where I was last time. I've been trying to get this but haven't been able to do it so far. Is it possible?
Thanks

If you are taking about having Caja remember what folders were open in the previous SESSION, it can do that now as this is a feature GNOME 2 always had. Yes, it still works, even in GTK3 builds.

To enable it, open dconf-editor, go to org>mate>desktop>session, set auto-save-session to "true" and any folder open when you log out will open again when you log back in. Works with pluma and mate-terminal too.

Hi lukefromdc. Thanks for your answer. It is not exactly what I was looking for but it is still a very cool feature.
What I would like is something like the browsers options that you close the window and when you open it again you get the same tabs that you had when you closed it. So you remain in the same session, you just close the caja window.

This can be done in the browser itself. In FF you go to settings: Section: Start: "Remember last session Tabs" (or similar - have different language version)

Ubuntu 16.04 version Caja 1.12.7 does not seem to have "auto-save-session" in dconf-editor.
Having the File Manager able to save and restore the previous session, I would have thought to be essential.

However, after many years is still not implemented (as far as I can see), in the Caja File Manager, or any other File Manager for that matter.

What is happening?

We have it in MATE 1.16, 1.18, and 1.20, I can pull it up at org>mate>desktop>session and its in that item, not in the "required components" below it

@Rubenzahl no, this option save the entire desktop.
We're talking about a "remember opened tabs" option for caja only. Like chromium or firefox :)

In my Mint 18.3 computer sometimes Caja doesn't save the session (obviously org -> mate -> desktop -> session is ticked). And I still have no clue about what is triggering it. Any suggestions?
