Windows 10: Remember window position?
Thanks for the advice, though sadly it doesn't work for me either.
Not Solved, But......
...... here's a workaround:
Go to your desktop and right click an empty spot, choose 'New' then 'Shortcut';
Copy and paste the following into the dialog:
then click Next, name it 'My Computer' or whatever you wish and click 'Finish'
right click on the new Shortcut and choose 'Properties, then 'Change Icon...',
in the dialog that appears, replace C:\Windows\explorer.exe under 'Look for icons in this file:' with imageres.dll and press Enter;
scroll over until you see this or an appropriate icon:
highlight it to choose then click OK, then Apply and OK on the previous window.
Now drag that shortcut down and pin it to the taskbar. You can delete the desktop version if you wish.
The first time you invoke Explorer from that shortcut and close then re-open it, it will have moved down and to the right about 1/2 inch but, it will only do that once.
The windows will open in File Explorer itself, but, launch it always from the new shortcut.
Used Option 1 here: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html
and that worked fine for me...
I tried that here and it did NOT fix the problem. If my taskbar is at the bottom of the screen, each time I close and reopen File Explorer it is a bit further down and to the right of where it was before.

That is not surprising really. The tutorial you linked to only claims to reset Explorer's folder views. It does that, but it doesn't fix the problem this thread is about.
for those who have enough RAM:
I have been doing this. also: if you leave the File Explorer open/minimized when shutting down your system the computer will restart with the File Explorer open and it will be in the same position it was before shutting down.
Yes, you are right, it only fixes the problem per session, if pc is restarted, the issue comes back, in my case, only and if only, I maximize & restore File Explorer window, if I keep it always NOT maximized, it always open at the center of the screen, maybe it's something similar to this, which affected W 8.1, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...?wa=wsignin1.0

I've done this countless times. Needless to say -but I'll say it anyway- : this doesn't work for me.
I have the solution!
Run your windows maximized! After all, isn't that half the reason you bought a 32" monitor!?

Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
