    Win10 Does Not Remember Window Sizes on Reboot or Restart


    After latest Win10 updates, it does not remember the sizes or locations of windows that I intentionally left open when shutting down or restarting.

    Does anyone know how this non-techie can make it remember?

    Do you switch between different monitors?

    Folder Options box was checked previously. Apparently it got unchecked in the massive update. THANK YOU for reminding me. I'll try restarting and see if it works.

    Yes, I have both monitors on all the time and keep open windows on both when I have a very active project. That's why I like them to be remembered.

    Thanks again. I'll respond further when I know how the Folder Options box responds now.

    Leaving 6 open windows in three different sizes and with different open specs, 4 on left screen and 2 on right, just restarted, and VOILA! All 6 reopened in fine shape. Thanks again.

    No problems after the restart with either monitor.

    Depending on the GPU and control software, you tend to see these issues when people switch back and forth between different sized monitors.
