    E.g. Actual Window Manager offers (a complicated) set of options such as
    Remember Explorer size and position-1.jpg

    - and this is just one aspect of what it can do...

    Not free- has lower cost options, subsets of the main program.

    Autohotkey (free) has many commands focussed on manipulating windows - well documented script tool.
    As well as simple individual commands, whole programs can be created- it supports the creation of functions, for example.

    For example, knowing the screen height, the appropriate height parameters could be used in this command and applied to all file explorer windows as they occur:
    Remember Explorer size and position-1.jpg

    Clearly this would require a short sequence to get the screen parameters, existing width of file explorer window so only the height was maximised..
    Remember Explorer size and position-1.jpg

    Care might be needed to ensure to which instance of file explorer any change was applied- the script would need to run continuously to detect new instances.

    Well...

    It would be great if certain System Windows. like This PC, Control Panel, etc. can be resized and locked.
    There are just certain default "windows" in W10 and W11 that I would like opened in a specific dimension.

    Don't see such a program.

    No worries. Thanks.

    videobruce,
    Peanut,

    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month.
    - By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial lists are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    You can search TenForums using the search box in the top-right corner of all TenForums webpages or using Advanced Search - TenForums
    - You can also search TenForums threads in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    - [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]


    All the best,
    Denis

    The problem with searches is finding & using the proper terms which is sometime harder than it would seem.

    Yes.
    I often find that using Excel to filter-find tutorials shows nothing at first so I have to re-try with fresh guesses.
    You might sometimes find that searching the forum using guessed search terms merely results in finding a thread that also mentions better terms. That's still progress. You'd then be able to search the tutorial list again using those better terms.
    There'd be nothing wrong with starting a new thread using whatever words you wanted and then searching the tutorial list again using terms that responders have used.


    All the best,
    And thanks for the rep,
    Denis
