Another approach

,----[ C-h k C-x r w ]
| C-x r w runs the command window-configuration-to-register
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `register'.
| (window-configuration-to-register REGISTER &optional ARG)
| 
| Store the window configuration of the selected frame in register REGISTER.
| Use C-x r j to restore the configuration.
| Argument is a character, naming the register.
`----

(info "(emacs)RegConfig")
