Windows 7: ShellFolderFix - Manage folder window positions/size

Shortcut for Workspaces

ShellFolderFix is a great app. It has made the transition from XP to Win7 much easier. I would like to know if there is an easier way to open a Workspace other than right-clicking the tray icon and choosing Restore Workspace.

Is there a way to create a shortcut to open a Workspace? Or better yet, can the Workspace be referenced directly so it can be opened from customizable Favorites keys on a keyboard?

Error: There are no open windows, that are saved in a workplace.

This seems to be a great app. However, after installing it on my laptop running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, when I right click on the icon and select "Save Workspace", I get a little popup window saying "There are no open windows, that are saved in a workplace."

The thing is, I have plenty of windows open on my two external monitors. And this is why I need the app in the first place...

Am I doing something wrong?

I believe that I read it somewhere earlier in the post that ShellFolderFix does not save application windows. I received the same message when trying to save a Workspace when all I have open are applications.

Try opening a window that contains folders and save that Workspace.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

At the bottom of the first post there are some download buttons.

Thanks for your fast reply - I had searched all over for a Download button.
Wouldn't it be nice to have one at the top of the website or under Quick links ?

Does this mean that ShellFolderFix doesn't save window locations for e.g. Firefox, Spotify, xplorer2, MS Excel, MS Outlook etc?

Great app. Saved me from Windows7 hell. Thank you.
On my wishlist I would like to see the state of the [Organize>Layout] options saved for each folder.
(If it already does this and I've missed the tick box, my bad)

Window Positions
Windows 7 is re-using window positions. Like when I open a folder, move and resize it, and then close it. The next folder I open is the same size and postion as the one I just closed. Or, when I open several folders, they all open next to the first open folder. Confirmed this on my other pc too....
