Makes Windows Explorer folders retain size and position

This is an app to make Windows 7 explorer folder windows remember their size and position. It has a couple of additional features too, and hopefully some more later on. It does NOT manage window size/positions of regular applications, if you want that, other apps like Window Manager do it. Allthough I haven't tried it, in theory it should work to run Window Manager simultaneously, if it's configured to ignore folder windows (found as "CabinetWClass"). I'd strongly recommend configuring WM to ignore them, or disable WM, before running ShellFolderFix, to avoid any potential "fighting" between the two apps.

Features and highlights

  • Correctly restores minimized/maximized states of folders when you log in (/ start windows)
  • Workspaces, allows you to save "presets" of your open folders (can be useful if you work on different projects and are used to have a set of folders open specifically for each project)
  • Tracks folders by folder name, and not window title.
  • Functionality completely independent of the windows setting to display full path in window title or not
  • Able to track folder changes when navigating to different folders inside a single window
