Windows 7: making folders open where you want them

making folders open where you want them

When i open a folder it never opens where i last dragged it. That itself is a bother, but the big problem is that when i open a second folder it always opens on top of the already open folder. So if i want to drag files from one to the other i always have to move the one out of the way. Is there a way to make certian folders open where you want them to open on the desktop?

this thread needs a *bump* because the default explorer behavior REALLY sucks.
Sure hope someone has a solution.

shellfolderfix works great. I wonder tho....would there be a way to enter it in the registry so it doesn't have to be a running process? i ask because i had a reg file for XP that worked like that. Just add it to the registry and it did the same thing. I bet this could be done. I tried it with 7 but no go.
