I'm using Windows 7 and I've got a few common things I do on my computer and each require a specific layout of the windows. For example, one might have Firefox open on the left side of the screen, a certain folder open below that, and a certain Excel sheet open on the right. One other example: 3 explorer windows, each for a different location, a browser, and 2 text files (open in, say, notepad).
I would like to create some kind of macro or something that could open all the windows I need, in their proper locations on screen, for each task with one click. If that's not possible, what's the least amount of work possible?
I'd ideally prefer not to have to install any special software, but I'd consider that.
