i3-wm Layout Mode

Save and Restore Window Positions

i3-snapshot is integrated into Regolith for saving and restoring window layouts in the same session. Pressing super , will write the current window layout to a file in the /tmp directory. super . will restore that layout. i3-snapshot is intended for use cases in which monitor changes may cause layouts to be randomized. It is not a replacement for i3-save-tree as it uses window identifiers that do not survive across X sessions, nor does it offer a way of positioning application launches into specific layouts.
