Memorising Resized Windows.

  dogbreath1 17:12 07 Feb 2006

Win XP SP2. Is it possible to have Windows remember the size of a non-full page window when it is shut down?

My Program Files folder is launched in such a window and I drag the window to a larger size to display all folders without the need to scroll. Unfortunately, on relaunch, Program Files doesn't remember this setting.

It's not even a minor irritation really but I am curious to find out whether what I am trying to do is possible.

Thanks in anticipation. db.

When it is dragged to full size select file>close next time it opens it should be full size......

try opening it drag to required size and close with alt F4 see if that sorts it.

drag to the size you want then press and hold ctrl and click the X to close the window. the window will then open the size you want next time.

I've just tried your suggestion with a Program Files window and it didn't work. Any more clues, you guys?

mine did exactly the same because "my computer" was not opening to a full page i used method i suggested earlier did it to both pages now both My comp and prog files open to full size.........

Thanks for getting back. I don't want a full page window, just a part page window that is bigger than the default setting. For example, if you resize the Crap Cleaner part page window by dragging it to a preferred size, it remembers that setting when it is next launched. Unfortunately, my Program Files folder will not do the same. Hope that better explains what I'm trying to acieve.
