    Does WinSetView affect window positions?


    I usually expect my folders and apps to maintain their positions (and sizes) when re-opened during a session. But this has suddenly changed. It might be a coincidence but this became apparent shortly after making a minor change to my global setting in WinSetView. (The first since installing a few days ago.) Windows are now persistently opening in the screen's upper centre.

    This is unchanged after a PC reboot.

    And using Shift when closing a folder does not ensure it returns when re-opened.

    EDIT: Well, whateverthe cause, it has happily cured itself! Normal operation has returned

    The onlyother possibly relevant factor is that I'm getting keyboard problems since yesterday, with some keys (like Space) not operating at first attempt. That's become so troublesome that I've just ordered a replacement.

    WinSetView doesn't do anything with window positions, but it does restart File Explorer which causes its starting window position to reset to the center. A simple drag to the desired position is all that's required and no other apps would be affected. It sounds like something else was going on. Glad to hear it resolved itself.

    Thanks, understood.
