Windows 7: Pin Open Windows

Pin Open Windows

Since I kind of feel it's my Civic Duty to ask really stupid questions that make everybody else feel intelligent, I'll do just that again.

1) We all resize windows for easier viewing on even large monitors.

2) Well, when you switch from one window to another, the window you switch from closes.

3) So there you go, reopening windows that closed by themselves.

4) Anyway to tell these windows to stay open, i.e. "pinned" to a specific locale on the screen?

OK, but that's all the personal information I'm revealing.

Great you have two machines and well the specs mate I am too old to be chasing anything and certainly can't afford it LOL!!

Now the windows IG (a short nick name so I can save on typing) we need to know what windows you have open - do you mean Google tabs or word doc to Google to email windows? as I can have ten Googles open three Word docs going and email running at once with no problems.

if you alt-tab, they should stay open when switching. same with Win+Tab.

Are you meaning the resizing goes away? or the whole window closes? or the window is minimized?

Thanks, ICit2lol.

As with everyone I have met on this forum, you are very tolerant and forgiving. If I learned nothing more from you today, I did learn that I can be even more so myself.

Well that is what life is all about IG - tolerance and a bit of empathy goes a along way. Thia world is full of those who do not see it that way and hence the mess it is in.

Glad to have you among us here in SF one day you will be helping someone even if it is encouraging openness and giving examples of your experiences that may help their predicament.

I started here because the previous forum I was a member of had more than it fair share of people who seemed to take great delight in making one look rather simple and even flaming them to the point where they felt useless. Not the case in here and I thoroughly enjoy this forum and consider it to be probably the best there is.

John - don't feel averse to stating your name because it in itself makes this place that much more friendly and personal. I for one would never take advantage of knowing what you or anyone else is called - we are all friends in here just think of them as strangers who are friends who you have yet to meet

Hey, John, I'm Dennis and I believe we're about the same age.

Anyway, I've had much the same experience with groups - not so much by myself being the receiver of vitriol but seeing others whose questions were typically responded to with "you idiot, don't you know anything about computers. You shouldn't even own one."

I was even banned for life from one such forum when I "put the wood" to some troll who had literally ripped the heart out of some poor newbie. When I saw that my IP was banned, I kind of leaned back and chuckled to myself. "Well, my job is done", so to speak.

For what it's worth, I have been using computers since DOS, with every iteration of Windows except Win 98 and its should-have-been-aborted sibling Windows 8. Haven't bought a computer off the shelf since 1991, so I'm pretty OK with hardware. Built lots and lots of my own computers and computers for other people.

I tend to know a bit more than I let on but I have also learned that if I chest-pound, people often overestimate me such that I don't receive the benefit of that essential tidbit of information that I was assumed to know - but actually didn't.

Plus, my Mama didn't raise a fool. Act like you know something in this group and you'll end up getting nicely smacked down by somebody who really does know something.
