Windows 7: Google Chrome default opening position and size

21 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Google Chrome default opening position and size

I am quite a highly OCD and lazy person and currently I noticed that everyday late at night when Iím doing some work I leave my Google chrome split to the right of the screen and some document on the left side. When I open the browser in the morning I have to manually re-size the window length and width.

I am currently browsing the internet to check if there is a solution to my problem and found a google extension that does 75% of the job. Itís called windows resizer -

However, you still need to press the button in order to re-size the window. I would like to override Chromeís default settings and set a width,height and position just like you can do with VLC player.

I'm sure that it is just me - but I don't understand the issue here. Chrome should remember the last position that it was in. Maybe I don't know what you mean by "I leave my Google chrome split to the right of the screen". You leave it windowed (not full screened) and on the right side of the screen - correct?
