Microsoft Edge was introduced in Windows 10 as a default browser, and even though this is a modern browser it has its share of issues. One problem that users reported is that Microsoft Edge doesn’t remember window position, so let’s see how to fix this problem.

How to fix Microsoft Edge window position issues?

Microsoft Edge is a completely new browser and it’s designed as a replacement for Internet Explorer. Even though Microsoft Edge fixed many of shortcomings that Internet Explorer had, Edge has its own problems. One of these problems is related to window position and users reported that Microsoft Edge doesn’t remember the position and size of the window once you close it. This isn’t a big problem, but it can certainty be irritating. Fortunately there are few potential workarounds available.

Solution 1 – Use right click to close Edge

This is a potential workaround and few users claim that it works. According to them, you can make Microsoft Edge remember window position after closing simply by clicking the X button with the right mouse button. To do that, right click the X button, keep it pressed and double click the X button with the left mouse button. This is an unusual workaround, but few users claim that it works, so you might want to try it out.

Solution 2 – Use ShellFolderFix

According to users, you can fix this problem simply by installing a ShellFolderFix application. This application is designed to remember the size and position of all windows, so be sure that you download it and give it a try.

Solution 3 – Install the latest update

This is a software problem with Microsoft Edge, and since Microsoft is aware of this issue, it should be fixed by downloading a specific update. This is just a minor and harmless issue, therefore it might not be fixed in near future. Nevertheless, be sure to regularly use Windows Update and keep your Windows 10 up to date.

Microsoft Edge window position issues can be a minor hindrance, but until an official fix is released you might have to rely on workarounds and third-party solutions.
