Windows 7: Open application Window at same location and size every time

Open application Window at same location and size every time

Regardless of where it was when I last closed it.

I do a lot of software development work using Notepad++ and the windows command prompt as my main tools. Everytime I open these applications, I adjust Notepad++ to take up 80% of the screen, and 20% for the command prompt to run the command line app that I'm writing.

During my work, sometimes I'll minimize close/resize these windows, but I'l like them to alwasy open at the same locations and sizes not matter where they where when I closed them.

Is there a Windows 7 configuration or 3rd party application to let me accomplish this?

Note: I've spent a lot of time searching for an answer, and am just about to give up.

Welcome to Seven Forums SmartGuy. While that should work, sadly it often does not, and the OP stated he had spent a lot of time searching for an answer
