Why don't FOLDER WINDOWS remember their size and position
Folder windows should open in the state they were in when closed last. They already remember the way their information is displayed, so why not their size and position.
Windows has always been very weak in the area of desktop organization memory. God forbid your icon layout should get messed up.
Bravo on pinning things to the taskbar, but why not the desktop?
What's wrong... Please write below.
When a window is opened it has a size and a location. Whatever window is opened next will have the same size and location. This is so annoying and it should not be behaving this way. EACH window should remember its own size and positioning so that the next time it is opened it will open in the same place and with the same size. This is not happening. When a window is opened in Windows 7, it will open with the size and position of whatever window was last opened. You end up moving and resizing every window once it is opened to get it back where it was the last time you used it.
1. I've noticed that when switching to Microsoft Word, Outlook and Excel, that Windows doesn't remember the size although it does remember the correct monitor and position. To make matters worse, when switching to a different application, using NaturallySpeaking voice commands, the Window returns to its original size and I have to resize it every time I switch to the app.
2. This question may be related to the 1st. Because I have 4 monitors, I like to open folders in specific positions on the 4th monitor. In both Windows Vista and Windows XP, the operating system would remember each folder's position and I typically work with the same 3 or 4 folders. Unfortunately Windows 7 only remembers the size and position of the last folder which I find inconvenient in my workflow. Switching to Windows XP emulation is not an option as NaturallySpeaking will not accept it.
I would greatly appreciate a solution if anyone has found a workaround for these 2 problems.
Windows 7 just doesn't remember any window view/size/position settings apart from the last one used. One example. I like to have a folder with shortcuts on my desktop where I keep all my shortcuts in order to escape desktop clutter.
I like this folder to not display navigation pane and to use tiles. In 7 when I set this folder up the way I like it all windows explorer windows that I open after that get the same view settings as this shortcuts folder which is definitely not what I want explorer windows to look like.
If I change windows explorer windows to display navigation pane and show files as a list and than open that shortcut folder again it takes that view, gone are the tiles, navigation pane is back.
Highly, I just cannot believe that they would remove such a useful productivity feature. If anyone has any idea of how to fix this or if there is some 3rd party tool out there that could solve this problem please share.
Like Opera is smaller windows size, Miranda and foobar are in the wrong place. What can be wrong and how do one fix it?
Is this a bug, or were they just inconsiderate and removed this function in Win 7? Or am I missing a setting someplace?
