Expand windows vertically on the desktop using Snap - size not remembe

As described. I want my compyter to appear as a bar vertivally on right side of 2nd monitor. Snapped window size is not remembered by explorer. Super annoying to snap it there back everytime. Might sound weird to some but the phenomena is annoying enought that I have to snap it back every time. What to do? Snap is too valuable tool to be snapped off entirely.

What you need is WindowManager but it will cost you $10. It remembers not only the Size but also the Position of all Desktop Windows in Win 7 - It works GREAT !!!! You can see it at http://www.desksoft.com/WindowManager.htm
