    Yeah, I actually get bitten by this sometimes too. I’ll add something, probably just delay closing for a few seconds so you have a chance to undo.

        If it waits to close, then there could be problems with things that ask for you to save before closing.
        Like if I have Word tabbed. I make changes to a file, then click to close the tab, and it disappears, but you wait to send the close command, then you wouldn't see the save menu, or if you don't hide the window, then its just going to take a few seconds before it actually asks you to save your changes
        The best you could really do is just re-start that process with the original parameters... it wont always take people back to where they were, but its the best you can do without somehow tracking what file each program has open.

        You could use the same key combo that web browsers do: Control + Shift + T

        Just add "Undo Close" or "Tabs History" (to re-open) menu items...
