ShellFolderFix 1.1.4

Publishers Description
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.

Packages available are non-installer versions (.zip) and a unified installer for both 32- and 64-bit systems (ShellFolderFixSetup.exe). When using the installer to upgrade from a previous version, it's good practice to exit any currently running ShellFolderFix before starting the installer, to reduce chances of needing a reboot.

What's New in Version 1.1.4 (See full changelog)

  • added pages to options dialog to be able to fit more options, and to make a clear separation between normal and advanced/expert options
  • added folder list dialog, that lists all open folder windows with commands to activate, minimize and close windows.
  • added option to show "Save Database Now" command in menu, instead of always displaying it (now hidden by default)
  • added option to specify start delay that used when the app auto-starts and the Windows folder option "Restore previous folder windows at logon" is enabled, this option might help solve problems with windows that end up with incorrect size/pos at startup
  • added control modifier option so that windows can be closed without database or recent file list getting updated, when holding down a control key during close
  • added "Disable State Recording" functionality, when enabled it suspends database updates so that windows can be resized and moved without their new size/position being saved (optionally this can be overridden with a control key modifier)
  • added option to control behavior of newly opened windows, to allow the app to be configured to not affect window size/pos (suitable for users that would only like to use other functionality, like for example workspaces or recent folder list)
  • ReadMe updated with more (and reworded) information, courtesy of kind forum poster Yahya

This very good freeware provides a method for Windows 7 users to apply individual size and positioning settings for each folder window in Explorer.
