    Windows 10

    Automatically size and position certain windows


    I'm running Windows 10 pro x64.

    I have an UHD monitor and would really like it if there was a way or application to set up certain windows to be a specific place on the screen and a specific size when they open.

    For example, each time I want to save or load any file a small dialogue box appears which I need to resize to the screen height. I do actually need the dialogue box to be that size.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi, if you have a look at Autohotkey (free) you can quite readily write a simple script which watches for certain windows (e.g. by title) and then if found, moves them to a certain position.

    Here's one command (from Autohotkey help) which should do part of what you need:
