Windows 7: Auto-snap to left when opening new window

Auto-snap to left when opening new window

I use Winkey+E all the time to open a new window. Is there a way to have the new window auto-snap to the left?

Welcome to Seven Forums rammo123. Not that I am aware of, but how about Win+E, then keep Win key pressed and press left arrow? Win+E Win+Left arrow. A Guy

You can do it with AutoHotkey
which is a free Windows scripting language

If you leave a script like the one below running in the Task Tray
it should have the desired effect if 2 conditions are met
1) the Explorer setting "show full path in title bar" must be enabled
2) the window opens to "Computer" but you can change the script
to match if you open to another folder or use the explorer class name
instead. AutoHotkey has forums where you can ask for help. It's kind
of fun to get Windows to do little extra things when you hit keys. That's
why I got into it.
