    Size and Location for Task Manager, Control Panel, Settings


    Are there any registry entries to set "Size and Location" for "Task Manager", "Control Panel" and "Settings"*?

    3rd party programs or a free scripting tool such as Autohotkey can be used to determine selected window placement and size (where windows can be resized).

    No need to access the Registry, you can use standard methods like:

    Position and size Task Manager Window then exit by CTRL + X that is the cross top right for closing Window.
    That saves the window size and position and subsequently will open in that size and position.

    Also applies to the others you mention.

    Replied in the ElevenForums thread:

    For Task Manager, there appears to be a settings.json file at the following location which seems to contain some size/position data:

    C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\TaskManager\settings.json

    For Control Panel, Settings etc., I don't know.

    Thanks for your answers guys;

    @dalchina
    That I know; nircmd has a function for setting size and location for a window, and I can write a script for autohotkey to do that.
    I wanted to know if there are registry entries.

    @Helmut
    I know how to set size and location of a window but I want to learn if there are registry entries.

    From this address I manipulate Windows Explorer window size and location
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell
    I have found that you can manipulate Control Panel window size and location here
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\Microsoft.Windows.ControlPanel
    You can backup all of your Task Manager Settings with this file include windows size and location
    If you erase this file it changes to default windows settings to its back. (thanks to das10)
    Code:
    C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\TaskManager\settings.json
    That das10 mentioned Settings windows size and location registry settings is here
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\SystemAppData\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\ApplicationFrame\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel
    So all it is solved. (my pc is Windows 11 22h2)
