    some apps, including explorer, do not load to last window position.


    Hello Ten Forums!

    The latest rubbing point with my recent Win10 transition that I'd love to hopefully get resolved.

    Some apps, including Windows Explorer Folder view, do not remember their last window position, when closed and re-opened, though, some do!

    What I mean is, for example the program Search Everything from voidtools I WANT it to open with the top left edge of the program flush with the top left of my screen. I move it there, yet, every time I close, then eventually re-open the program, it's lower and a bit off to the right.

    Similarly, when I open a fresh "This PC" folder window, when none is already open, it's a little higher and to the left than where I want it to open, despite me moving it to it's preferred location when I do open it.

    But, not every program has this issue, many, if not most others, open from the location they were last closed.

    Any ideas what might be the issue, and, if so, how I can fix this minor but noteworthy annoyance?

    As always, thanks for your time, and for helping the n00bs like myself!

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Explorer and Recycle Bin windows don't remember position

    Thanks, but alas ,your suggestion is not working, after opening, draging to desired position, closing and reopening ,the explorer and recycle bin windows still slide to different positions ,the explorer window for example after each close\reopen slide towards
    the right buttom corner of the screen ,after reaching right buttom corner and no where else to go ,it now opens up on the right upper corner of the screen ,after that it opens on the left upper corner ! Looks like a yo-yo dancing all over the screen some apps, including explorer, do not load to last window position. :)
