Windows 7: Changing the default position of opening a program

Changing the default position of opening a program

Hey guys. I have a question. Whenever I open Google Chrome, it opens really close to the bottom of the taskbar, and I always have to manually drag it into the center of the screen and maximize it. How can I set it so that automatically opens in the center of the screen?

Try putting it in the middle of the screen (unmaximized) and holding down shift when you close it

Doesn't work. I have tried other keys too, like alt, ctrl, but it doesn't work. Is there a way to clear the data for the window position?

If you want it to open maximised then open the Browser and maximize the window. Click "Ctrl Alt Delete" and then select "Start Task Manager".
Highlight Google Chrome and click " End Task".

This will close the browser and it will reopen in its last (maximized) configuration.

If you want an easy way of handling windows quickly without any fuss or all sorts of dragging about etc etc then try this;

WinSplit Revolution

it will remember where all windows were and open them in that position again. Also easy to resize or move etc etc.

You could also try Clicking on File then hold down the Ctrl key and click on Exit.

I have had similar problems with Adobe Acrobat and Excel, both would open in the smaller of two monitors no matter what I did to change it. Holding down buttons when closing did not change the behavior. Windows 7 does reopen in the same monitor, and relative location, for me but only if the window was *not maximized* when I closed it. If it was maximized then it was right back to the original spot, minimized it would go to the last monitor it was open in.

This worked for me. Thank you! In fact, I think I may have just clicked the red x's while holding ctrl.
