    I don't know if I'm being dim and missed a switch or something but I can't seem to arrange my windows on the desktop anymore so that they appear where I need them when opened ?

    this is important to me as I am used to working in My documents and My computer simultaneously with those two windows appearing diametrically opposite, this always worked in win98 , winme , winxp and vista , although sometimes not consistently :rolleyes:

    I have a fresh install of WIN7 beta and have tried the technique of closing with the x while holding CTRL but nothings working to set it :frown:

    Is there something I've missed here or is this a known bug ? :mad:

    thanks for any help :cool:

    Yer right. It don't.
    Bloomin' nuisance if you ask me.
    Two panes, esp with Explorer, is essential to my work style.

    Try docking.
    Hold down Winkey and press right/left arrow.

    yes docking works in that instance but as soon as they are closed they reopen in the last place and size the last window was closed in , so if I close My computer then close My documents then reopen My computer it will reopen in the position and size that My documents was in :mad:
