    I finally figured out what you were doing, and it seems as if this is by design, because it did it on my machines as well.

    Solution: Manually make window the size of the height of your screen by grabbing title bar and dragging *down* so bottom edge is just off screen, then grabbing top edge and stretching up until just before you hit top edge, then grabbing title bar again and moving it up just a little too bring bottom edge back into view.

    Takes some practice, but you can have a window occupying the entire height of your monitor without actually maximizing it to your monitor height, and then it will stay at that size through app restart.
    This is exactly what I'm doing - sizing apps, but not touching top. Problem with Edge (and Insider program) is, that after upgrade you have to do it again, sometimes Edge goes nuts, sometimes new windows is opened...) OK, it's not really that huge problem

    Don't think it's "by design", because other programs remember this size and position (FF, Vivaldi, Acrobat ... should try them all, but I'm not using every app this way). One thing is snapped to left or right, - it is expected to open them differently next time, if you're working side by side), other thing is to work with side strips free.

    Previously used disc clean-up to remove .old,
    however for the last 5 builds it has not removed the FOLDER internal data yes. via properties 0 bytes

    So i just used the take ownership/ delete folder commands

    ALL gone

    For removing windows.old, or .old(1) you can use this command:

    Open command prompt (admin)

    RD /S /Q %SystemDrive%\windows.old(1)

    Thanks for the tip. I just saved it too my Windows tip folder. Friday I had to do a repair install on my Acer laptop due to me fiddling around with Windows. I had a Windows.old and a windows.old(1) and I wanted to delete them. I used IOBit Unlocker to delete them. This caused my laptop to crash. When my laptop restarted some of my programs were either missing or corrupted. I didn't even have access to file explorer. It didn't even show up when I searched for it. My laptop now has a clean and updated FCU. I could have done a Macrium restore but I was bored and decided to go ahead and do a clean install.
