Windows Resizing
    #2351782 - 02/18/04 08:41 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I'm using XP Pro on another laptop. I've got a group called Games.
I resized the window to the size I liked, then closed it ( either by File-Close or the X)
When I restart the PC the window is back to the default size.
Any idea as to why it doesn't save the last resize?

Try this from Windows Explore......

Tools, Folder Options, View......

Look to see if "Remember each folders view settings" has a check mark in its box.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Make sure Internet Explorer is not open. Now navigate to the folder
H_Key_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main

and on the right side delete the entry Window_Placement

To control the size of primary and secondary IE windows, start by closing all IE windows. Then launch IE, right-click on any link, and choose Open in New Window. Size the secondary window the way you want all such windows to be. Now close it by clicking on the X icon at the top-right corner while holding down the Shift key. Repeat this for the primary window that remains. You may have to repeat the process from time to time.

If you always want your home page to open in precisely the same size and position, you can add a little JavaScript to the home page URL. Select Internet Options from the Tools menu and edit the Address line in the Home Page panel so it looks something like this: javascript:resizeTo(1024,400); moveTo(0,0);document.location.href='http://www.google.com'. You can also edit any Favorite in the same way. Right-click on the item in the Favorites menu and choose Properties. In the URL field, enter a command like the one above. When you click on OK,IE will tell you there's a problem and ask whether you want to proceed anyway. Click on Yes.
