Windows 7: Have "save download window" stay large?

16 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (Full)
Have "save download window" stay large?

Hello all

This may seem like a silly thing to care about but one of the best things I like about Windows 7 coming from XP is the ability to make the window that comes up when you download something much bigger.

Was always a pain to deal with such a small one with XP.

About the only thing is that while it can be dragged larger it won't stay that size for ever and mostly after a complete reboot, it always defaults to about a 1/4 size of the screen window size.

So I was just wondering if there is any kind of a registry hack I can make that sets this size so that I might set the default higher so I don't have to keep re-dragging it so much to get that.

Thanks for any help.

This is a good question and something I was wondering the other day as well. Usually window sizes and positions are saved in the Shell/Bag properties in the registry, which makes me wonder why they are resetting.

I haven't tested when it actually resets, but if it resets upon boot, I'm curious as to why, at that point.
