How to get the list of notebooks that are automatically opened when Mathematica starts programmatically? I know a tedious approach is opening option inspector and finding and copying the list out.

    $\begingroup$ Options[$FrontEnd] gives you the same info as the option inspector. But I always thought that Mathematica will only auto-open notebooks on OS X, and that's an OS X feature, not a Mathematica feature. (I might be wrong.) $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jul 17 '14 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ @Szabolcs I think you are right. It has never automatically opened notebooks for me on Windows or Linux. $\endgroup$ – mfvonh Jul 17 '14 at 16:22
Options[$FrontEnd, AutoOpenNotebooks]


CurrentValue[$FrontEnd, AutoOpenNotebooks]
  • $\begingroup$ I corrected this to work even if the option is not explicitly set. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jul 17 '14 at 16:25
