    Windows 10 How do I lock the position and size of a window


    I have followed threads with the same question and I find no solution. Perhaps a better description of the problem will help. When I open a window such as Google the window opens upper left about 1/8 the size I want. I can move the window to the right then drag the corner filling the screen to about 60% from the right. That is where I want it. When I close the window and reopen it, the window is back to the 1/8th size in the upper left corner. I would like Windows to remember and open the new window in the right side and 60%.


    Thanks. Fred

    :)

    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

  3. Saving windows position

    Hi Christoffer,

    I've tried to replicate what you want to achieve. I tested a few Windows apps (Weather app, Paint app, and Skype app) and I was able to set the size and the position of each app. When I close and open an app, it opens right where I placed its floating window.
    You may follow these steps:

    1. Open an app or a program.
    2. Resize its window according to your preferrence.
    3. Right-click on the upper-left hand corner of the app or program window, then click
      Size to lock the window size.
    4. Move the window to your desired position.
    5. Right-click again on the upper-left hand corner of the app or program window, then click
      Move to lock its position.
    6. Close the app or program and then relaunch it.

    Please let me know how it goes for you so I'll be able to further check on this in case the above steps won't help.

    Regards.
