Windows 10: Remember window position?

    Exactly... I do a lot of tasks that cause me to repeatedly seek something out with my mouse in explorer and the window is moving around on me constantly and slowing me down and driving me crazy. This never happened on any previous version of Windows. Looking for a fix if anyone else happens to stumble in here and know about one.

    It's a bug. Windows has never had this behavior in the past and it makes no sense to randomly position the windows. If you don't know if a fix (registry, whatever) that's OK, but that is what I am after.
    There's a difference between "doesn't do what *I* want" and a bug.

    A bug is when the program doesn't do what it was designed to do. A program that doesn't do what YOU want it to do is just unfortunate, for you.

    We don't know if Microsoft designed it to do this. We do know that previous versions did not, but that doesn't mean the current behavior isn't what is intended.

    You may be right. It may be a bug. Or it might not. It's been reported for a very long time, and still hasn't been fixed.

    Regardless, as I said, it appears to be doing this intentionally. Explorer *DOES* save its location. Otherwise, it wouldn't remember the last location in which to offset it from. What it's doing is loading the location it was last saving in, and then deliberately bumping it's location down and to the right of that previously saved location.

    This is not something that you can just plug a registry value in. It appears to be programmed explicitly to do this.

    I'm not here to argue about whether it's intended behavior. I'm looking for a fix. Thanks for the input though.

    I don't think there is a fix for what you're encountering. Since it's not a true bug I don't see the reason to fix anything at this point.

    lol... I think some of you guys would say it wasn't a bug if your computer wouldn't restart... MS intended it... Win10 is perfect, etc...

    I'll keep looking elsewhere... thanks again for the input.

    That's like saying, "I'm not here to argue with you that amphibians are not mammals, I just want my iquana to be warm blooded".

    I'm trying to say that there is no "fix" in the traditional sense, unless Microsoft decides to change this (which seems unlikely).

    You will have to take matters in your own hands. I already suggested a possible workaround, using WindowPad, but you haven't even looked into it.

    For the other guy that was having problems with this intended behavior... check out this link. I never had problems in previous versions of windows, but apparently other people have experienced this intended behavior. This was made for win7 but I just tried it out and it seems to be working. Hope it helps you out. ShellFolderFix - Manage folder window positions/size - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Seems to work some of the time and not others? It also happens for me for other windows instead of just File Explorer.

    Can I ask if you have your taskbar at the bottom or not? And if you size windows by Aero-snapping-to 50%, or manually resizing theh window to half of the screen?

    I use Windows Manager and you can apply it to any apps. Works great.
