Windows – How to get Windows 7 to remember program windows size and position

displaywindowwindows 7

I can open Outlook and it fills about half of the screen. I then maximize it to read some mail and then minimize it to do some other work.

When I click on it again in the taskbar, it is back to the original size that it opened at.

I have tried Ctrl-close and Ctrl-maximize but neither seems to work.

This also happens with Explorer windows, AutoCAD, Revit, and other programs that I work with.
Shouldn't a minimize and a maximize bring the window back to the last size and position?

  • As user harrymc, I checked: Maximize + minimize + click on Windows 7 does return an Explorer window as maximized.

    Try with Shift + close on the window (to save its position and size). This may help!
