    Windows Explorer folder sizes and positions in Windows 10


    I have two laptops (stopped using desktops years ago) that came with Windows 7 Pro. As MS will stop supporting W 7 next year, I decided to buy a new W 10 Pro licence and install onto a separate drive.

    I am a heavy user of Windows Explorer for displaying the contents of folders. But W 10 has major problems in this area.

    Folders open in a very small size, so with two folders open I right click the date/time and select 'Show windows side by side'. In W 7 this will display one folder on the left of the screen and the other on the right, filling the screen.

    But in W 10, I get two very small folders one above the other. They are so small that they are useless until edges are dragged to enlarge them. The W 7 feature of locking to the screen top/sides is also missing or I can't find how to turn it on.

    How can I get folders to open in my default 'half-screen' size automatically?

    :)

    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

    Windows 10 - Folder Size & Position resets to last Open Folder

    I cannot find a setting in the Folder settings where I can set my folder size, type, position to be unique from other folders. When I close one folder and then open another the new folder inherits the same size and position of the last open folder.

    Is there a way to change this?

    The icon settings for each folder are saving properly. So if I want to see a list of files in one folder but have large icons in other folder there is no problem.

    So this question is limited JUST to the size and position of the folder when its opened. Seems like XP had a setting where each folder could have its own unique position and size. Does Windows 10 have the same options? If not why not?
