Title pretty much says it all.
Can it be done?
Thanks in advanced =).
Not sure what you mean. Chrome always opens at the last window position and size. Does yours not do that?Title pretty much says it all. Can it be done?
@C++vid; It sounds like a strange request to me, if I may say so. When I first installed Chrome (a few times after 'upgrade' hiccups!) its window appeared off left, and an odd size; half monitor width, but almost full monitor height. Why on earth would you want to reset it to such a default position? Just curious - you may have a very good reason, but I can't think of it!
I know It's a weird, very weird actually, request, but just go with me here...
Can it be done?
The only way I can think of would be to uninstall Chrome, and delete its directory from within your Users/AppData/Local folder. When you reinstall it, it'll probably go back to the original position. It's perhaps easier to just move the window and size it as you think it was, and pretend! (I think once you move Chrome's window once, it defaults to remembering the position and size).
Go to ~\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\ and delete the User Data directory. This will reset all of Chrome's settings, including window size and position, to their default values.
Not just for Chrome, but I have written a free hotkey utility that toggles between 2 non-maximized sizes and positions. For Explorer windows it forgets the info between runs, but for applications the size and position are saved in a file. Go to this page:
and download Toggle2
When you hit the hotkey it prompts you to move and size the active window the first time. It saves the old size and position. After you resize/move then hitting the same hotkey toggles between the new position and the saved one. After you install Chrome, make it the active window. Then hit the Toggle2 hotkey. You should then be able to switch between those 2 non-maximized sizes and positions.
It's just a little hack I wrote for my own use.
