    Why Doesn't File Explorer Etc Stay In Place?

    I always like to have my Windows positioned in a certain way on my desktop, and even though some programs remain, a lot don't (i.e. 'This PC' & 'Documents' folder) never stay in the same place. It's always random when opened. Not a major issue I know. But annoying all the same. Is there a fix or workaround?

    Can't get rid of the language thing near the clock neither. Disable it, but always reappears on boot.

    There are already dozens of posts on this subject. There is no way to solve this problem in the OS itself, but there is a third party tool which apparently runs in the background and forces the window to always open in the same place.

    It's not random, it's always slightly to the right and slightly down from the last place it was closed. When it gets to the bottom or right side of the screen it starts over at the top or left side.

    There is.
    Just an option. > Tablet Mode


    It is easy enough to work with using mouse and keyboard.
    Also, current running windows are easy to switch to using task viewer or switcher.
    Not for everyone.
