Windows Explorer window jumps to other position or 2nd monitor when clicking a folder to open
Posted on 2014-03-28
I like to have two explorer windows open so I can easily work with moving and copying files between two mapped drives or two different folders. I have been frustrated with maintaining their position and size in Windows 7 so I installed ShellFolderFix to do just that. However when I use the navigation pane on the left to click on a favorite folder or even a mapped drive under Computers the explorer window jumps position on the monitor and changes size and even moves to the other monitor. Not all favorites and mapped drives do it. I've uninstalled ShellFolderFix and reset folder defaults but explorer still has a mind of it's own.
1. I would like to reset explorer to not jump around.
2. I would like to use something like ShellFolderFix but even it will not allow me to have a preview pane open in one explorer window and not in another.
What should I do? Why can't two different named desktop icons for windows explorer keep the precise size, position and other attributes?
