Is there an equivalent of emacs' m-x save-window-configuration-to-register


In emacs,

I can save the current window configuration (which windows/frames/panes are where and what files do they contain and where is the buffer position in the file to a "register" with a keystroke, then I can change all of that for some temporary excursion into other files, and then pop back to the original window configuration.

So I am looking at these three files, then oh, let's look at these two completely different files, and five minutes later, now that I'm done, let's go back to the three files I was editing earlier.

I can do that for almost any number of window configurations, and then restore them as I need. These window configurations do not persist across emacs sessions.

Is there any equivalent to that in PyCharm?
