Windows 7: Returning explorer to default location?

Returning explorer to default location?

Hello guys,

Lately, I've been sharing my computer with my brother (his computer broke) and he just like to move the windows around (ie. music window to the bottom of the screen etc)

So, every time I opened the music folder, it opens the window to the bottom of the screen.

Is it possible to reset the window locations to its default location/size.

Thanks in advance

Just open the music folder or any other folder for that matter, then drag it by the top bar to whatever position you prefer. Resize it if you wish by resting your cursor on any corner of the Window until it turns to that double ended arrow and just drag. Close the window and when you re-open it, the window will open in the same position and size that it was when you closed it. This will also be the same if you reboot the PC.
Why not set up a separate user for your brother then you can have the position you like and he can change the layout to his hearts content without affecting your layout!
