    Windows 10 How to set a window size on desktop

    Hi Bairn_966,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Ideally, the Windows of the any program or the file Explorer will open in the same size as it was closed last time. However, I suggest you to follow the below steps, and check if that helps.



    1. Resize to the size of the application you want.
    2. Press the shift key and keep it pressed, then click on X or close window with mouse while the key is still pressed.
    3. Restart the System and check if that works.


    I look forward to hearing from you soon.



    Regards,

    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

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you want to increase the desktop icons' size.

    You can change the desktop icons' size by just pressing and holding the Ctrl key and scrolling up/down on your mouse.

    To increase the size of text, apps and other item, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + I to open Settings.
    • Click on System and Display tab.
    • Under Change size of text, apps and other items, move the size bar towards right side to increase the size.

    Hope this helps you. Let us know if you need further assistance. We'll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
