Windows 7: Is there a way to have windows open sam size as when closed?

17 Jul 2015   #11

Windows 7

Guess I wasn't clear. I have certain programs that I run when I boot. Some of them open in a window. However, they open in a different size window when I boot than they were when I last resized them and minimized them. For instance, one window opens almost at Max when I boot. I would like it to open as a much smaller window. In any case, once I boot and open this large window, I resize it to a much smaller window - then minimize it after I check its' contents. When I next reboot, the window takes up almost my whole screen again. I'd like it to open in the position and size it was when it last opened at a boot and I resized it to a smaller window (and positioned it where I wanted it). Thanks..........

I mostly use keyboard commands for AeroSnap when full or half screen is good enough for me and Divvy when I need finer tuning of window size and position. Divvy has a free trial version that is full featured but can be used for free indefinitely.
Thank you - I'll try it out!!
