We've all lost our keys, but computer windows? That's something the operating system is supposed to remember. Windows 7 has always had that kind of memory problem with occasional program windows, but this tiny freeware utility should fix that. The program forces Windows 7 to recall where you last opened a window, preventing your apps from opening partially under the taskbar or unmaximized when you really want them opening full-screen.

The program sports a simple two-pane interface for keeping track of your open windows and logging their movements, and it's all text-based in small fonts. It also feels like it adds a quarter-second or half-second to program windows opening. That being said, if Windows 7's forgetfulness is annoying you to no end, WindowsWhere will end it.

Developer's Description

Manage your explorer windows where you want.
WindowsWhere is a tool designed to help you make sure that the Explorer windows stay where you left them. Use WindowsWhere with Windows 7 to make sure that explorer windows stay where you left them. See, Windows 7 (and Vista as well, apparently) like to forget where you left your explorer windows, so that new explorer windows end up wherever the last window was, instead of where that particular window was last. It's seemed to work fine on Windows XP. This tiny program is an attempt to regain that functionality.
