My Pc Window Moving Around

  Input Overload 17:06 13 Oct 2008

I recently reinstalled Vista premium, which has been a good OD for the over year and a half it had ran. Anyway the problem is that when I open My Computer I like the window to open in the same place as I have 7 drives & I like them to be in the same place.

Lately The My Computer window opens anywhere on the screen it wants to. I know it's not a huge problem but is irritating to me. Any registry hacks etc out there? Thanks.

Not sure if I follow you - do you mean the contents of the window or the position of the window on your desktop?

The position of the window, sometimes it will open top right next time bottom left :-)

Sorry can't explain that - could it be snap to grid type settings for your desktop or heres annother idea do you use a cleaner program that deletes preferred settings...?

If you double click my computer,surely everything is in the same window?So i cant see what the problem really is.

tullie, we seem to use our Pc's in different ways, still my hopes weren’t high for a solution. I'll search the web again.

When I open My Computer the Window will always re-appear at the position it was when I closed it.

Just position the Window as you would like it, then close it and open it again - does it then stay in the same place?
