    Microsoft Edge opening window position


    I know that this has been asked before, but I've not been able to find any resolution.

    My screen is of the 'wide' variety. When I open Edge, it insists on opening on the left. Has anyone found a way to persuade it to remember to open centre screen?

    I know it doesn't affect the actual operation, but it is irritating and it puts me off making Edge my default browser.

    Hi, normal Windows operation is that a particular program will open its window in the same position when it was last closed. Certainly Edge behaves like that for me (although I don't use it routinely so have configured nothing in it).

    However....

    Some people do experience specific problems with this. I'm afraid all I can do is direct you to a couple of extensive threads on this sort of issue (not necessarily Edge in particular). Questions like this have been asked since at least Win 7.

    Various addiitonal programs are mentioned from time to time- really that should not be so.

    I have the same experience when I open up FireFox. It is a bit annoying but it's not that much of an issue for me to want to do anything about it.. yet.

    dalchina, BunnyJ, thank you both for responding.

    I found a resolution for my little problem here in the reply #102 by Cliff S:
    Remember window position?

    It involved downloading, extracting and running shellfolderfix from here:

    Just remember:

    ShellFolderFix has no installer but it also has no uninstaller. It loads in your startup so you can’t delete it without disabling it from starting with your computer. You can use a program like CCleaner to disable it from starup, reboot and then delete ShellFolderFixUI.exe and ShellFolderFixUI.dll wherever you’re running it from.
    That's from the Major Geeks download page. You can also use Task Manager to disable it, and kill the process, if need be.
