    Thanks Brink, but I need a more specific script. I want to reset the window position (X, Y) of the applications. Can you help me? Thanks!

    Usually explorer will open in the same position it was last closed.

    Yep! and I want to reset it and my applications to the default position, like a fresh install of Windows...

    Resetting explorer using the .bat file in the tutorial below for Windows 10 will also reset the position of File Explorer back to default.

    I need to reset not only the File Explorer, but the position of all applications. There's a way?

    Something like this.

    Thanks!

    I'm not aware of a universal reset position for all apps option. Plus, not all apps can have their position reset.

    If this is something you need often, then you might consider if a guest account may work for you where everything is reset to default after each session.

    Brink, you have created a masterpiece of code. Thank you!

    I have been using this Dell XPS8500 with Windows 7 since December 2012. I used the "reset Windows Explorer" to look at the Packing Slip which is the last file in my downloads.

    Last week, I encountered the woes of Windows Explorer when I did something that really scrambled the views of my file system. That was on Thursday March 4. For 3-4 days, I have searched for a solution. I tried one of your earlier batch files that did not fix things.

    Today I found this solution. When I open Windows Explorer, the view is BEAUTIFUL.

    Thank You!
