How to List All Open Windows on a Desktop

I would like to be able to create a snapshot list of where I am when I have to put a project aside for a while. Bookmarking all my open Chrome tabs I have handled. But how to automatically generate a list of all other open windows on any particular desktop?

I found one KBM token that comes close, %WindowName%All%, but it just lists all the windows of the current app in the current desktop. I want to expand that to list all the windows of all apps in the current desktop.

And I'm stuck at where to go.

I imagine KBM has a built-in way to do it, but I haven't been able to find it.

Any suggestions?

Hey August,

Not as far as I know.

Keyboard Maestro can list apps and the windows of the front app, but I don't think it can list windows of arbitrary apps.

System Events can though.

tell application "System Events"
   tell (application processes whose background only is false)
      set appNameList to name
      set appWindowNameList to name of windows
   end tell
end tell

set _cntr to 1

repeat with appName in appNameList
   set contents of appName to {"# " & appName & " #" & linefeed} & item _cntr of appWindowNameList & ""
   set _cntr to _cntr + 1
end repeat

set AppleScript's text item delimiters to linefeed

return appNameList as text
