Windows 7: Make Windows 7 remember window positions and size!

ok that seems to be better.
but i'm still having an annoyance, lets say i minimized a window
than i went to the preview of it in the taskbar and closed it.
next time it opens=minimized.
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 always set my special windows to this position this size so they are always in the same place so i have not noticed that problem. However I like the blank suggestion it has been great thank you

Not sure where you got that from, but I have this (attachment) what I used for Vista, and if it's correct like some have said, that some Vista tweaks work with 7, people can give it a try if they want. I'm on a fresh install, and so far haven't come across the issue, but I did on my last installation, but never thought to use the reg file.

I found a free program that seems to work better than WindowManager.

Worth a look

Automatically Resize Your Programs - AutoSizer

That looks like a good one to use and its free, has anyone tried this yet and did it do everything you wanted it to?

With Autosizer you have to configue every window manually. Window Manager does it automatically.

And I still can figure out how to have either of these do what I want.
Like opening My Computer, going into a drive and any folder, resisze and move the folder and close it. When I open My Computer, it is the size and position of that folder I just resized.
In Vista or XP if I did that, My Computer would be the size and postiton of the last closed My Computer window.
I emailed the author of Window Manager yesterday asking how to do this. No reply yet.

I have got autosize to work for a split second and then Windows Explorer changes size and position to default. Need to find Registry keys to modify. I have no doubt that someone will get a fix for this.

with auto sizer even if you configure the windows it works once and then the program ignores the window. this is a real shame from Microsoft.

God damn microsoft. This is my first post and decided to register on this forum, to post my incredible frustration with the removal of the "remember each folder's view settings" option from the "folder and search options" menu.
Here I am with the x64 ultimate version of windows 7 fully purchased installed and registered and this retarded lack of this feature is already making my blue blood boil.
I propose a mobilization of everybody who want's this setting implemented and we all email microsoft about it and then make a petition for this feature to be implemented back in.
I think a petition would really ruin a few hundreds of microsoft's sales at least and if it's successful enough it might even counteract their marketing at this point in time.
So we really need to act now or stfu forever!
