I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Crome wont 'remember' size/position

drag the sides out a little and then maximise - then you need to close using thr menu - so click on the spanner and exit
that should now open in the maximised state

same applies to other browsers - the key i found is to drag the sides slghtly and to save/exit/close using the menu option NOT the X

For some reason, my Wordpad won't remember the window's size or position. I don't mean for each document individually, I mean at all. Every time I open it, it's just this big thing in the middle of the screen. I've resized it to -3, 0, 446, 1063 countless times, but for some reason it just doesn't stick.

I've tried holding ctrl while closing it and whatnot, but nothing seems to work.

I had another Vista Ultimate x64 install that did not have this problem. Wordpad just remembered its size and position every time it was changed and it would always open up to the size and position it was last closed as. But for some reason, it just won't save on this install.

Any help would be appreciated.

edit: I managed to right click on the title bar each time to resize each side of it, then held ctrl and closed it, then I opened it and it remembered it. So then I moved it where I wanted it with the title bar again, and then ctrl closed it again, and it seems to be staying there. Thanks, problem solved.

A:Wordpad won't remember size/position

Hello Tiffanys , welcome to the forum.

Resize the window, then reposition. Hold down the Alt key and left click the close window button on the top right of the window (red X). In some computers it works with Alt key instead of Ctr key.

What is the rational (if there actually is any) of not allowing one to save window size & position (other than the last window opened)? :confused:

Without using a 3rd party program (which seems to be the norm with Win7) has someone found a way to allow saving resized windows other than the last window opened??

Hi guys,

This has been bugging the hell out of me for about two weeks. Windows is no longer starting firefox maximized, and is putting it in a really small area to start out with. I'm sick of having to maximize it every time I open it.

I'm not sure if this is with other programs or not, but I can't remember anything coinciding with the start of this.

Also, I have a weird problem in FF where any drawers or menus will only open after clicking and moving under them. For example, I click an RSS feed in my bookmarks toolbar folder. The little arrow turns black, but nothing extends out. I have to move my cursor underneath the icon for the list to pop out.

Also, when adding a site to the bookmarks, I'll open up the dialog box and click "ok", but then the text just disappears and the bookmark will be entered without a label.

Any idea what might be up?

A:Windows won't remember firefox window size/position

Try this Fox

Up until a week ago I could minimize an open file that would fill the top half of my screen and it would go all the way from the right side to the left. After maximizing the window and then minimizing it again, it would be the same size and position as it was before. My screen resolution is 1366 x 768.

Then, and I don't know what I did wrong, when I minimize the file, it's in the same position, (top half of screen all the way to the left) but it's about an inch from the right side. I think that I had set the PC to remember the position and size of on windows. Sure doesn't work that way now.

I've searched everywhere and I can't find how to reset it. Any ideas?

If you moved it back to the way you wanted, and closed the file, does it open the same way as it was last closed again?

If not, then you could use the method in the tutorial below to reset all folder views back to default, to see if doing the above may work again.

I've been banging my head on this one all day ...We have a domain network where one of the users is complaining that her Windows 7 machine is not remember the size of a "File Upload" window. If we adjust the size manually and close out, it goes back the it's original size when we open it again.My original thought was something in the GPO was causing the issue, so we prevented all policies from applying and even created a new user to ensure it wasn't a corrupt profile. Still, no luck. We run into the same issue as the original user.However, when we log on as Domain Admin or Local Admin, the issue is resolved - we can resize windows and it's all remembered the next time we open it up. With that in mind, we created another new user, no policies applied and made them a Local Admin. Guess what ... same problem as the original user.Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this problem and if there is any way to fix it? The user states that she didn't have this problem until recently - but we have no way to verify the authenticity of that statement.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Something I like and can't seem to get Win 7 to do for me.....

I open a window for my computer, size it and set it at the upper left of my screen. I open folders in new windows; i.e. open the D: Drive and position it next to the window I opened for my computer. Close both. When I open my computer again it is now in the position where I opened the D: Drive.

How do I get specific windows to retain the size and position I set each time I open them rather then simply pick up the size and position of the last window I opened?

Sorry for this sophomoric question; I'll probably kick myself when I know the answer.

Hello everyone, I have a laptop that I often use with an external monitor and I'm a person who likes to have my windows organized in a specific way every time. Now my problem is that when, for example I am using my external monitor and have everything set up the way I like it, then I need to take my laptop somewhere, so I have to use the laptop's monitor all of my windows are resized and not organized at all, so every time I switch monitors I have to go through the process of moving and adjusting the sizes of the windows every time, which has been quite tedious and annoying for the last year. So I did some Googling for my little problem, however I found NOTHING about the problem as far as Windows goes. I found two separate applications that sound like exactly what I need, however they are for Mac only.

I have started using windows recently and a flood of problems has arisen. Most I have conquered but this one I just can't figure out.

When I open a window, then maximize it, then close it, and then reopen it, the maximize position is incorrect. The window does not go all the way to the top, and is not "tacked" to the edges of my screen, as maximized windows should be.

EXAMPLE:

Normal maximized window (Manually maximized)
After closing the window, I reopen it. The saved maximized position is off, it's too small.
The supposedly maximized window can even be moved around!

I have googled and search and I have not found an answer.
Hopefully someone here knows!

Thanks you

When I open the browser in the morning I have to manually re-size the window length and width.

I'm sure that it is just me - but I don't understand the issue here. Chrome should remember the last position that it was in.

Since the first public beta of Windows 7, I found it very annoying, that MS removed the option to remember each folders view settings for explorer windows. Now explorer windows didn't even remember their position and size, which completely destroyed my work routine.

A:Outlook 2007 doesn't remember window size

Hi, victord66!

Try maximizing, then closing it and re-opening. After re-opening it should come up as full screen (maximized). Then restore down and size it to the way you want it. Next time you open it, it should retain that window size.

If you want it to be maximized (full screen), always close it when it's maximized. If you want it to be a particular window size, always close it when it's at that window size and location.

This works for almost all application windows.

If that doesn't work, we'll have to look at the properties of the shortcut you use to start Outlook. We'll save that for later, however, as I doubt you changed any of those settings, right?

I check the box to "remember this password" and when i close Internet explorer and come back, it doesnt remember me.

Ive tried renewing my internet connection, delete all cache + temp files, and clearing my history.

I have a windows xp pro machine running ie 7.

Does any one have any recommendations or links to help solve this issue?
Why is this happening?

NOTE: Id rather not change browsers, but figure out the problem.
 

A:Comcast website wont remember my password.....

Could be a problem with Cookies--either a bad one already stored or not allowing cookies to be stored. For the first possibility I think IE7 only allows removing all cookies (i.e., I would advise deleting any Comcast cookies, but I think that with IE 7 you have to remove all).

My asus A7n8x is a great board. It produces alot of heat. My other board kept my case at around 80 degree's and now this board is about 92 degree's. And I have eight fans in my case. Anyways It keeps forgetting my desktop settings whenever I turn the computer on in me. In XP its no problem. But ME it keeps forgetting my settings.

Also I have another problem. You know when you buy a compaq computer they give you that cd which makes it reformat it and program it and make it turn out to be like it just came from the factory loaded with all the programs. Well i want to make one of my harddrives like that. Whenever I try to do it, I load the cd in and restart it, then it starts loading, but it wont work. The letters are all jarbled or just doesnt show. Are these cd's no longer good. I still need ME sadfully.
 

A:mobo wont remember my graphics setting

For the last "problem", you'll need to use Norton Ghost or something similar... But then you'll be able to create cd's of your Os harddrive, and restore it at any time...
Search for this in the misc software forum...

It's not your motherboard that is the problem when it comes to saving your settings... This is most likely due to a setting in Me, which ignores any changes you make to the desktop...
(A very nice way to make sure everything looks the same in an office/school, but not to usefull for a home user....)

Unfortunately I can't seem to find out where this option is...
Try searching through the register (regedit) for "desktop"...

Last, I guess you're using fahrenheight, as otherwise you've got your computer in a sauna....
Are any of the fans directed at the heatsinks on the motherboard?

BTW: Your fans are set up correctly? (not all blowing in/sucking out?)

Ok so I've been determined to try and troubleshoot this one myself for the past week and it has gotten me nowhere so far. Let me bring everybody up to speed on what has happened. I have a DV9535nr HP Pavillion, specs are in signature, that has an Nvidia 8600M GS display adapter that has stopped working recently and I cant seem to keep it when I shut the laptop off. The other day I opened the laptop lid and it said "Resuming Windows" like normal, and then bamm, everything went to VGAsave on the screen. 640x480 4 bit colors, etc. Just crappy. Naturally I turned it off went to F8 on startup and Last Known Good Config. Booted up ok I figured everything was fine. And I had been getting the all too nortorious screen flicker and blank for about 12 seconds then "display adapter has stopped responding and has recovered" message since day one. But this time the screen went black and the laptop just hanged. So I had to turn it off and back to the 4 bit color crap. SO... read through a bazillion forums on laptopvideo2go.com got a lot of good ideas but none of them have really stuck thus far. Did the whole Driver Cleaner deal with safe mode to remove step-by-step any trace of the drivers. And re-installed them, rebooted. Initially this method worked fine. But when I got to any sort of screen flicker deal...back to square one, and I'd have to do the process all over again. We'll like 3 days ago this stopped working all together. Tried registy cleaner, CCl... Read more
