Reset All Window Positions And Sizes To Default?


I have a dual monitor setup. After making some changes to the orientation/positioning of the 2 monitors, I've noticed that a lot of windows are now partially or even completely offscreen. This is especially problematic with MDI programs (programs that have sub-windows inside them, like Photoshop's dialog boxes and palette panes), as there's no way to interact with the offscreen inner windows and bring them back onscreen.

How can I reset absolutely all window positions of every single program? The registry modifications at Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default fixed Windows Explorer and a tiny handful of other programs, but not even WMP and Notepad were fixed.

Resetting Original Window Sizes And Positions?
I'm guessing when you run a program for the first time it figures out what resolution you are using and centers and sizes it accordingly. My window sizes and positions are a mess and I was wondering if there is a way to reset the windows so the next time I open the program they look as if I opened them for the first time. I'm talking about every window that pops up on the computer. Is there a way to do such a thing? Hope that all made sense

Icon's Sizes Randomly Change Back To Details Sizes In Random Folders
i had last year Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder

may also be relate to the issue that this user had Shortcut icons re-sizing randomly My OS had gone crazy and change icon's sizes back to details sizes in random folders, last time i had that issue i thought it was solved by this method Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder

But unfortunately it only was temporary, i had to format anyway so the problem was solved after the format and never appeared again till 3 days ago.

it not seem to be a virus but it really annoy, the only thing i done 3 days ago that was extraordinary for me was to edit some video on windows live movie maker + cccp codecs, i rarely use WLMM but happened to use it 3 days ago, and after that the issue reappear, i can't use system restore since i done alot of stuff on my pc and don't want to lose them, and also i don't happened to made restore point before the day the issue occurred and the rest are deleted..so SR is not a option.

Can't Reset Size Of Window After Reboot
I tried to download but received a message if I did it would harm my computer. My problem happened when I had a freeze and had to force shut down. When I rebooted my screen came back up about 4 times larger and I can not get it back to normal size. I have tried to reboot, set it back to yesterday. I have checked all the drivers and they are up to date. What do I do now?

Reset WMP 12 Default Size And Position?
I've been looking to Reset the default windows size and position of WMP12 (in the Center of the Screen without Maximizing) the way it is used to be when we launch the WMP12 after a fresh install of Win 7. I know there might be some way to reset it's default size and postion from Regedit (Just like we can reset the Internet Explorer size and position by deleting 1 binary value from HKEY User/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer etc. )

How To Reset Config File For GPO Back To Default
I have spent the last couple of hours going through each GPO setting to disable as many features for my kids account on Windows 7 ultimate. I saved the file as kids.msc. The only issue is that I want to be able to clear these settings when needed, so that i can fully access the features. I could not find any options in GPO that allows you to reset the settings back to default...

Boot Priorities And Paths Deleted After BIOS Reset To Default?
I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7. I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted. Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI). I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive. I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all, how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

Default Window Size Failure?
Installed 7 yesterday. All went well. This am window would only open to half size. In Vista we could fix this by opening a link by right click and asking the link be opended in a new window and then X it out. It would then recall that size as the default. This does not seem to work in 7. Simply re sizing it up and over is not working.

Default Window Size Is Incorrect
I recently did a clean install of Windows 7. I had run into an issue where certain UI elements would ignore DPI changes. Eventually, text looked like this:

Not exactly ideal. I couldn't find a solution, so I was forced to do reinstall. Instead of using my pre-SP1 disc, I created a slipstream DVD. Despite RT Windows 7 Lite giving me an error at the end of the burning process, Windows installed fine... for the most part. See, the default window size is too wide. Whereas windows typically default at something closer to 4:3, mine are closer to 16:9. It's a minor issue, sure, but I'm worried it's a symptom of a bigger problem.

Thinking something got goofed up during the install, I found and applied a registry edit that resets window properties. After relogging, the issue still persisted. Does SP1 use wider windows by default or is there something else going on?

Default Area Selected For Folders In Explorer Window?
So i have created some shortcuts to quicklaunch certain folders. Some of them open and i can use the arrow keys to scroll through the items in the folder.

Some of them open with the "Name" column selected, so the arrow keys don't initially scroll through the items in the folder.

I know this is very specific, but there HAS GOT to be a way to define what it opens to by default... especially since some of my folders default to the list of items within the folder.

Media Player - How To Change Default Window Size
Whenever I play a video file (.wmv, mpg, etc) or audio (.mp3), MP starts out at the last size it "remembered." But when it opens the file and starts playing it, the window gets really small, like a default size and makes it difficult and annoying to re-size it to an appropriate size. Most annoying is MP becomes smaller such that the volume control on it disappears to just being a toggle for mute. Is there any way to change the default size of MP?

Weird Font On All Browsers But Can't Reset Windows 7 Default Font?
I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Way To Set GPU On Default Settings Or Reset GPU Settings In Cmd Or Other Professional Way
Now, just 3 days ago It started the BSOD issue.I realize that my GPU was the cause of this issue. When playing games or open 3d applications the temp goes 30C to 72C (In 15 seconds) then 82C - 85C constant (in about 30 seconds).Now I've been using MSI afterburner to check my temps and at fulload my GPU will be at 62-72C max temperature but now it's 10C even higher then before. No, I haven't fiddled with the voltage I set the GPU voltage to 1.037v which is the safest (been running this almost 8 months!). The GPU is the GTX 560ti.Is there a way to set the GPU on default settings or reset GPU settings in cmd or other professional way. I have uninstalled the drivers, uninstalling GPU, disabled GPU, disabled PCI-E slot and so on by using device manager and the issue still persist. Yes, I also have clean the GPU perfectly and still the temperature goes up to 82 seconds at 30seconds-45seconds. Yes, I have checked everything is set correctly and so on, I am a PC Tech.

Is the GPU damaged? Yes I have looked at this thread: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try Mainly, I know its the GPU straight away, I tried checking old drivers, new drivers, another GPU overclocked software such as GPU tweak and EVGA Precision. I am thinking it's the GPU is damaged or the PCI-E is damaged (I have another PCI-E slot on my system and the issue still there). It might be the PCI-E frequency? but it's set to 100 which it meant to be, I just hope is software related because I don't have the money to buy a new card. Did the dump files help?

How Windows 7 Out Of Box / Positions Boot Files On A HD
I'm away from my new Windows 7 box ATM, but am curious. Has anyone here looked into how Windows 7, out of the box, positions boot files on a HD? Does it simply group them together wherever there is space or does it also position the group on faster outer tracks/cylinders?
