$10 is very reasonable for supporting a programmer who offers such a helpful app. Why would you want to stiff him/her?

also if you open a program and fit it to the left side or right side of the screen (dividing the screen to 2)
i stays there instead of returning to the same state.

I think that's the whole idea - it stays where you last put it.

Best ten bucks I ever spent! Using it for ten plus years. So, one buck a year.
Window manager is still being developed and they don't charge for major version upgrades.
I can't use a PC without it. No one should!

I tried Windows Manager, but it doesn't do what I want - I want my winows to behave as they did in XP, and Windows Manager just doesn't do that. I want each window to remember it's own Size, Location, AND VIEW (which INCLUDES whether or not the folder tree panel is open at the left).

Also if I click on a folder or an icon/link that points to a folder that is already open, it should GO to that folder that is already open and bring it to the front, NOT open an ADDITIONAL, identical folder.

Microsoft just broke Windows Explorer and there doesn't seem to be any way to fix it, short of an update, which is not going to happen now to Windows 7. I tried Windows 10, and it is much worse than Win7 - it is horrible! - the whole point of it seems to be to take all control away from the user/customer of his own PC. I'm trying to get Window 7 to work, but I may just have to move up to Linux sooner than I'd expected.
