QuestionHow do I check to see if any running applications have unsaved documents? Pin

I have seen other people's solution to the rather small, obscured 'power off' button in Windows 10 - by making a link to shutdown.exe. Unfortunately, as far as I can see, shutdown.exe will not check to see if there are any unsaved documents and will close the computer whether data is saved or not. Also, although you can delay shutdown.exe - this, I think, is made almost completely pointless by the fact that there is no way to cancel it (that I can see).

My idea is to write a small program which will call shutdown.exe after a delay but which can be cancelled. This bit, I'm pretty sure I can do. The part I have no idea how to do is to check to see if there are any unsaved documents so I can give the user the option to quit shut down.

Is it possible to check to see if there are unsaved documents? How would I do this?

Thanks.
