LOL sometimes, you just don't ask questions. I loaded up media center to add a new recorded tv schedule for today, and it was in the exact position it was when I shut it down yesterday. The only thing I did in-between, I installed DB Power Amp and it's related codecs. Perhaps one of those "fixed" media center? Seems doubtful, but hey. . . whatever works.

Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions.

This is why my preference is to only install well known and tested software, unexpected behavior.

I used VLC going back to the XP days, MPC was fine on Vista, and has been around for years as well, I would certainly call them known and trusted. Ah well, the issue seems to be a non-issue now lol. Such is life.

Actually, I believe I now know what the trick is, while Vista Media Center remembered it's position, if it was partially off the screen, Win7 Media Center does not, if the top or edge is beyond the visible screen, it will not remember that position.

Size does matter.

Has anyone found a reg key that we can add to allow window position saving when border is off screen.

For example: I watch WMC and drag out the sides so i can use it while its not maximized to access the taskbar.
