I would like to enlarge the default size for the XP File->Open dialog box. I can always drag them to make them larger, and most apps remember that size while the app is open, but it of course doesn't 'stick'.

I would like this across all applications that use the standard XP open dialog

dbrunton: Thanks. FileOpenChecker works, though I'd like to find something that controls both width as well as height.

d_may:  Is there a typo in your link? OpenDNS can't find the domain.

" I can always drag them to make them larger, and most apps remember that size while the app is open, but it of course doesn't 'stick'."

Try holding CTRL down while closing it to make it "stick".

dbrunton: I am going to give File-Ex a shot. I'm not wild about paying $20 for it, but it'll do exactly what I want. The FileOpenPatcher  you mentioned was free, but has two (to me) major problems: 1) It only allows you to set height, not width, and 2) it freezes the height.

johnb6767: holding the control key down when closing the dialog has no affect on its behavior.
