Windows 7: Window position when Copy to or Move to clicked

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Window position when Copy to or Move to clicked

When 'Copy To folder...' or 'Move To folder...' are clicked the Move Items and Copy To windows opens on the desktop in the position captured in the pic. I have to drag the window to put it in full view. It has been this way since I got the OS 4 years ago, so no settings or malware have caused this. Is it possible to change the default position of this window when it opens? If Thank you in advance.

Hello Mark,

You might see if using the tutorial below to reset the browse for folders dialogs positions back to default may help. If not, then you could adjust the Browse For Folder Width and Browse For Folder Height DWORDS pixel values in the registry location in the note box at the top of the tutorial below to the position you like. You may need to play with the values a bit until you get it how you like though.

Can't thank you enough. Ended up changing the DWORD values to 550 height and 390 width. Windows now open in full view. Thanks again.
