Windows 7: Windows Explorer Default Window Size

Windows Explorer Default Window Size

I'm not sure if I'm in the right category with this but, I would really like to know how to reset the windows explorer windows sizes to the default size. My video card drivers were updating and I guess it changed it's resolution to a really small one and it made my explorer window smaller as well. If anyone could help me with this, I'd be very grateful.

Just resize the Explorer window, make it as big or small you want to, and close it. Explorer remembers the last window size, and now all opened Explorer windows open in that size.

For example, open Libraries window. Resize it and close. Open now the Computer window and you'll notice it opens as big as the Libraries window was when you closed it.
