    Center Google Web Page - How?

    How can I center my Google Web Page? I followed the below steps, but when I closed, the new position did not stay.
    I use Windows 10, Google and Microsoft Edge, but I do not use Google Chrome.

    Assuming you can still see part of Google Chrome browser window, albeit its off centre, do the following:

    • Open the Google Chrome browser
    • Now press Alt + Spacebar keys together, then with mouse select Move from the menu that appears
    • Now tap your left or right Arrow key to move the browser to a position you like.
      • i.e. If browser is off to right then tap the left Arrow key to bring it back to the left, or
      • If browser is off to the left then tap the right Arrow key to bring it back to the right
      • Likewise, you can tap the up/down Arrow keys to move it up or down.

    • When you have positioned the browser where you want it, close the browser. This allows it to set its current position, so it opens there the next time you use it.

    Now when you open it again, it ought to be in the position you moved it to.​

    When I use Edge, wherever it's positioned (and sized) when I close it is where it opens the next time I start it.

    Hello again –

    I didn’t correctly identify my problem. When I open Google from my desktop icon, it opens in Int. Explorer. However, the real problem is the Google screen is not full size. When I resize it to full screen it does not stay and returns to a smaller size the next time, I open it.

    How do I get my desktop Google icon to open in Edge?

    Set Edge as your default browser.

    Open Edge, click on the 3 dots at top right then Settings near the bottom. Right at the top is Change my default, click on that.

    Another thing I've had some luck with is to hold the Ctrl key down while closing a window, might have to try a couple three times for Windows to get "trained".

    Thanks Ztruker for your suggestion on using Edge. I made the switch and so far Google is coming up full page. I'll keep checking, but it looks OK now.

    Good to hear Jerry.

    Now give Edge Beta a try. Much better than Edge.
