Windows 10: Why does Windows keep rearranging my window positions?

    Why does Windows keep rearranging my window positions?


    I have four monitors, and have my windows arranged in specific places. On a regular basis, usually after a Windows upgrade, after restarting, I find that Windows has "helpfully" moved my windows around. They are always in the same place on the monitor, but are often on the wrong monitor.

    Worst affected is Microsoft Visual Studio. I have the main window on my main monitor, and various panels in two smaller windows on a secondary monitor. Windows often decides to put the main VS window on the secondary monitor, and the two smaller windows on a completely different monitor altogether.

    However, it's not just VS. Windows will often move File Explorer, Thunderbird, etc.

    Is there any way to stop this? It's really annoying.
    Thanks

    They re-arrange mine too but it's after I shut it down because of some malfunction.

    Thanks, but that's only for Explorer windows. Explorer is one of the few windows that doesn't tend to get moved around!

    Thanks anyway.
