Saving urls of open webpages on exit from IE7

Basically, the problem is how to make sure that if IE7 is shut down (in my case programmatically) that all at that point open webpage urls are saved in say, folder X. Just Urls, or may be shortcuts to them - does not matter.

Is this from a page you control, or is this just an "in general" wish?
Hello pretentious_indifference,

You can save sessions on shutdown with IE7Pro

Hope this helps!
If I understood the question correctly, I'm thinking what you need is to save all open tabs to some location if an unexpected IE shutdown occurs. Now if this is what you meant there is an "add in" for IE " IE7 Open Last Closed"  that can actually recall accidentally closed tabs.

The application can be downloaded from Windows Market Place:

After the add in is fully installed, one can reopen a recently closed tab(s) by pressing the key combination of "Alt" and "X" or pressing "Alt" and "Q" , this will  show a quick tab view of the recently closed tab.

One more thing this add-in is ad supported, but the ad feature can actually be disabled by clicking the "Disable Product Bar" button on the toolbar.

thanks for all of those, but I actually was after some sort of programmatic solution like a script or something. in that case I can include it in my programmatic solution (since IE7 is shut down by the script).

You can sink the window.onunload event, and do your magic within that handler:

<script type="text/javascript">
    all your wonderful script
    goes here,
    and then add
function wrap_it_up()
    final script here

window.onunload = wrap_it_up;
