Windows Explorer question

Hi, I am wondering about the ability to customize a window size but have it apply to ONLY that window like I used to do in Windows 7 and have it show up in that size every time I call it up.  Windows 10 doesn't seem to allow me to do that.  Am I overlooking something?
Thanks

Please provide steps or a PSR.exe recording. This works on my Windows 10 laptop, I used Windows Key + E to open Explorer.

This is the size of the window I wanted (see pic 1).  Problem is that this is not the window I want size like this.  After I size the window to the size I want, all subsequent windows that are opened are opened to the same size.  I only one ONE window to be this size.

So you are talking about file explorer? resize one and open another and you'd like it to be of another size?
camtzAuthor Commented:
Okay, I guess it's called file explorer.  Yes, I normally look at my windows in a bigger size.  I want to be able to see one particular window in this size and all others in my "normal size".  I am working on transferring music from one folder to another so that I can categorize my songs and this was very easy to do in Windows 7 because once you resized a particular window, it would stay that size until you changed it but did not affect any other windows.  In windows 10, as far as I can see, once you resize a window, all subsequent windows open up to the size of the last window you opened.

Is there a way to resize ONE window but not affect all others?  That is the question.  Why would Microsoft take away a very useful tool?

The behavior you're describing is not one I've observed.  What's normal is that if I open one instance of a program (Explorer, Notepad, etc.), the next time I open an instance it will (usually) open the same size as the last instance of that program that was resized.  I just did this in Win7:
 - open Explorer window 1, resize it and close.  Open Explorer again, and it has the same size as the window that was closed.
 - open another Explorer (window 2).  It has the same size as window 1.
 - resize window 1.  Open window 3.  It has the same size as window 1.
 - resize window 2.  Open window 4.  It has the same size as window 2.
 - close them all.  Open a new window.  It has the size of the last window to be resized (window 2).

I see what you mean but it doesn't bug me in the least

You can try...
Open first Explorer and size it as the larger one.
Open second Explorer and size it smaller then open subsequent Explorers

Also, there are shortcut keys (Windows Key + Left/Right/Up/Down that controls Windows) and you can put Windows side by side

Like footech said, that is how it behaves on 7 and it's the same on win10. I haven't found them to behave differently.
