    Thats what I thought you ment. So have you installed windows updates. There was one that needed to be installed to help some bugs?
    Ok I'll try that. I hadn't installed any updates. Thanks Charlie BTW where in Jersey are you? I'm in Lakewood. Looks like we're going to get hammered Tue&WEd. with snow.
    Yeah. Windows should have installed the updates by now. But you can have a look see in settings / updates/ veiw history
    Don't think we are in for any snow here in the mid west. Wish we was my garden could use the moisture.:)
    Well I installed what updates there were but still have that problem. Is there a new build coming out in the next few days?
    9926 is out now .

    I guess I'm a little OCD but I like to center the windows, like control panel, personalization my pc etc. Everytime I get them perfectly centered on the desktop when I close the windows and reopen them, they're not centered. In W7 or W8.1 they stay locked in position. Is there a cure for that or should I just take an extra Prozac
    Have you tried holding down the ctrl key while clicking the X in the upper right corner? This saves the position and size of the window.

    If that doesn't work, you may have a corrupted position cache.. I'm sure there is a tutorial somewhere on how to clear this, but I can't seem to find it.

    How sticky is the save?
    Say you centered the window and CTRL+X, then opened a few more of the same windows (3 File Explorer). The other two windows are offset, naturally. Then you move the windows around and resize one, then close the original window. When you close the additional windows, the saved pos & size should be retained. The next time you open File Explorer, it should be positioned and sized as it was saved by the CTRL+X, yes?

    There's also the open windows in a separate space - does that come into play? (sorry, I didn't look for the exact wording - trying to get out to dinner with my wife)

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Morning USMC - I don't regard this as OCD, just reasonable personal preference. And it can drive you nuts!

    There is a massive (nearly 50-page) thread here: Solved Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving - Page 47 - Windows 10 Forums. As one poster noted, how is it that the entire MS development team never noticed this issue?

    As a solution (on page 47, linked above), Dogsled & Intrepid1 mention ShellFolderFix, available from Major Geeks: Download ShellFolderFix - MajorGeeks. I downloaded it yesterday and it's completely cured the problem for me (so far). It's a minor fiddle to 'install' (it runs almost as a stand-alone application) but it's small, simple and free - and it's effective.

    Anyway, it worked for me so I thought I'd say so. (Since it's so simple, why haven't MS sorted it out yet?)

    Cheers,

    Chris
