Open Firefox for example, resize its window, place it anywhere on the desktop, and then close the browser. When you’ll restart it at a later time, it will remember its window position and size. I picked Firefox only to highlight that some applications remember their window position, while others don’t. And that’s where WindowManager comes in. This tool will make sure that application windows open where they should.
WindowManager is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8 or 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Home Server, and Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012. No matter what Windows version you have on your computer, a simple setup wizard will help you quickly and easily install WindowManager on it.
As you can see from the screenshots and from the Quick Look video, WindowManager’s interface isn’t exactly pretty. It’s all just a bunch of text and buttons and menus that a novice computer user might find a bit confusing. The Help file isn’t much use either, featuring huge chunks of text that the novice user might not feel compelled to read.
Explaining how WindowManager works is a fairly simple matter: set up rules and it will apply the rules, forcing application windows to open a certain way. If a software application doesn’t remember its last position and size, WindowManager will apply rules that force it to remember these things.
WindowManager isn’t free, it is only free to try. You have a trial period of 30 days to evaluate it and decide if it’s worth paying $10 to get a license. As someone who tests dozens of software applications each week, I have to say that only a handful fail to remember their windows position and size. Most applications remember their position and don’t need to be forced with a tool such as WindowManager.
If you find it annoying when an application doesn’t remember its window position and size, then you’re very well advised to go give WindowManager a try.
WindowManager is compatible with any Windows edition you can think of. WindowManager will apply rules and force windows to open a certain way.
The interface may prove challenging to a novice. The Help file is text only. WindowManager is free to use for 30 days.
