Will not except the wordpad window placement... is moving all over the screen.

I have this annoying problem... I open a wordpad document and set the widnow investment that I love and that you close the document. When I re - open the document window has shrunk and moved to another part of the screen.

Often the window will be very small... almost half the size of my screen.

I know that I can use the properties to maximize the window always open to but I work with several documents simultaneously and need access to my other links and expanded running does not allow this.

Is there a way to keep the wordpad to remember the location of the window?

And while I'm on this subject, my excel 2000 does the same thing, but it slides to the top of the screen, each opening until the title bar is off the screen (I keep my taskbar at the top).

Thanks in advance


Go to start / Control Panel / folder Options / display and check the box next to remember each folder view settings.  If it is already done, this obviously won't work.

I don't know what else to think.  This should not occur and there is no settings in Wordpad to control this type of behavior (or on the desktop also).

As far as Excel goes, try to post the question on the Excel Forum: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/excslcreate/threads where experts in Excel will be happy to help you.  Maybe this solution will solve Wordpad as well.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

  • Windows will not update the screen resolution and the color depth

    Out of the blue today, my Windows XP installation had its color depth and screen resolution back to the lowest setting and whenever I try to update it refuses to put up-to-date.

    I even try to restart my computer and a bubble appears downstairs offering reset the color depth and resolution to my automatically.  When I click, it appears as if he's trying to return to normal, but again once nothing happens - the colors and the screen resolution is still at the lowest setting.

    Can any ideas on how I fix?


    Here are some things to try to fix it.

    Change the screen resolution.

    "How the resolution screen on Windows XP"


    You can also right-click on an empty desktop > properties > settings > it the slider bar allows you to increase the resolution > Apply > OK > agree in the next window, etc.

    If that fixed it, have damaged you graphic drivers.

    Access the site on your computer or the manufacturer of the graphics card > look for a driver download Section > search for your model number and operating system > get graphics / video / Chipset Drivers (depending on how it is formulated) > download and install.

    Change the screen resolution.

    You can also try a system restore before all these problems started:

  • Equium A100-027: can not get the screen turns off automatically in Vista


    Got one of the new A100-027 of the load with Vista a couple of weeks. I can't get the screen to stop automatically when the appliance is left unattended. Standard windows screen saver or power options makes no difference. The screen is always on when I get back to the schedule of the machine later, I don t want to put a 'sleep' mode because the machine is internet access.

    In desperation I changed the option to close the display does not go into mode 'sleep', but it would be nice if the screen would make her s auto off, instead of having to close the screen every time.

    Thank you very much

    A bit of an update, I found the screen stops automatically in normal conditions. But then, I leave the computer running a program of file sharing peer-to-peer on the net that he will not cut the screen down. Even minimize the program doesn t allow the screen to close.

    I am really frustrated. WMC will not download the new guide listings and I tried all the patches that are supposed to be that I found in this forum. I also tried the system restore, which did not fix the problem. Obviously the problem is not affected by the restore program.

    I was able to determine that there is some kind of corruption of the WMC files that Windows 7 can not solve (according to the event log).

    I'm a bit exasperated at the tenacity of this problem. Y at - it a reliable fix or I need to reinstall Windows 7?

    create dvd Windows will not import the mp4, how to get around it, someone knows?

    It must convert your mp4 to WMV format video, and then add the wmv in Windows DVD Maker.

    There are other formats supported by Windows, but I chose WMV format because it is the most reliable and foolproof format for Windows.

    You can google for a free video converter. No need to buy one, unless you are a 'huge' in the making of films and others.

    I use Prism video converter. It's free.
