How to restore a Gnome 3 session?

How to restore a Gnome 3 session? Which means: opening all the programs running last time when I log out in Gnome 3.

If your purpose is to automatically start programs after logging in Gnome, another possible method is using the autostart script: https://www.systutorials.com/qa/119/how-to-write-a-autostart-script-for-gnome

Run gnome-session-properties.

In the “Options” tab, select “Automatically remember running applications when logging out”.

The “a thousand words”:

Gnome save session when logging out

  1. There is no such tab in Gnome 3.28. I have the following:

    > dpkg -l | grep gnome-session
    ii gnome-session 3.28.1-0ubuntu3 amd64 GNOME Session Manager – GNOME 3 session
    ii gnome-session-bin 3.28.1-0ubuntu3 amd64 GNOME Session Manager – Minimal runtime
    ii gnome-session-canberra 0.30-5ubuntu1 amd64 GNOME session log in and log out sound events
    ii gnome-session-common 3.28.1-0ubuntu3 all GNOME Session Manager – common files
