IDEA: Saving and restoring window(s) size and position
« on: September 26, 2010, 10:18:15 AM »
Hi all,
I'm wondering if someone can code a program that can save and restore size and positions and window currently open.

Every time after I run a full-screen application (like a game) that uses a lower resolution, the currently opened windows all gets moved and sometime resized. This means I have to re-move and re-resize them after I'm done with the full-screen application.

So it'd be nice to have a program that solves this annoyance. Specifically, I'm envisioning the program to be:
-A tray icon that has two options: "Save window size and positions" and "Restore window size and positions"
-The first option would store the size and position information of all currently open window
-The second option would restore the size and position setting, if the window is still open when the option is selected

Thanks.  :)

This thread may point out some tools that are out there:

I know there's an ahk script mentioned in the thread but I haven't tried it:

Also there's this $10 app.  Haven't tried it either:

This isn't exactly what you're searching for, but if you like your programs in the same window size/position, you can try "Sizer". I found it some months ago and after some hour using it I decided it's one of those programs I can't live without anymore. Love it.

For your gaming issues I recommend a seperate user account, at least that's what I do. (Fast user switching, also see http://www.technixup...ndows-in-mouse-click)
