    How to Customize Console Window Position in Windows


    A console (or "terminal) is an application that provides I/O to character-mode applications.

    For example: command prompt, PowerShell, or Linux

    This tutorial will show you how to customize the default window position a console window (ex: command prompt, PowerShell, Linux) opens at by default for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    If you set a custom console window position for a command prompt, it will only be applied to the specific console window shortcut that opened it.

    For example, command prompt opened via Win+X menu VS Run (Win+R) dialog. Each location would have its own settings.




    Here's How:

    1. Open a command prompt, elevated command prompt, PowerShell, elevated PowerShell, or Linux console window you want using the shortcut or location you want to apply a custom window position to.

    2. Do step 3 (default system position) or step 4 (custom position) below for what you want to do.


     3. To Let System Position Window for Console Window

    This is the default setting.

    A) Right click or press and hold on the title bar of the console window, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    A) Move the console window window to the position you want on your display.

    B) Right click or press and hold on the title bar of the console window, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    5. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.


    That's it,

    Is there any way to do this with a PS script or reg file? :)
