ResizeExplorer v. 1.0 is available on my downloads page:
It just sits in the tray and the first Explorer window it sees, it
sizes and positions it. Before it is initialized, it will move Explorer
to x,y 0,0 width 600 height 600 just to show it's working. Size
and position Explorer then use the Save Explorer Position and Size
command in the Tray Icon Menu to save the setting to the .ini
file that is written in the same folder as the .exe when the program
This is just for those situations where you can't get Windows to
remember where you want the Explorer to open and the window
It only messes with Explorer the first time an Explorer window opens
while it is running. Close all Explorer windows and it is "armed" again.
edit: changed default sleep time to 1/10th second. Seems much more
responsive without hogging CPU. If it runs up CPU on your system
you can bump it up a bit using the .ini file setting.
