I personally don't (not because I don't understand the registry) but I prefer use an INI file, just the same as Opera does.
guinness, you never miss an opportunity to mention Opera... :roll:

Late to the party as always, but couldn't pass by without mentioning that Pitaschio (http://pitaschio.ara3.net/; v1.20 has been discussed at http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 8849#p8849 and seems to be portable now...) has a setting that will constrain any program windows to the available screen real estate.

It's that 'Place window only in screen' option...

It lists all open windows. A double-click on any list entry centers the window. And it's portable!

@ jscottmurray
The Desktopian.org address is currently down.

But I found a link to a file called DeskLite @ http://www.shellfront.org/utils/

Please If you could post a md5checksum for your copy of DeskLite, or download the copy of DeskLite from http://www.shellfront.org/utils/ and compare them.

Thanks.

Oops I ignored the dates entirely.

I scanned the copy of DeskLite I downloaded and it works.

Tested Desklite and it seems to work as described. Thanks. :)

EDIT: Although last developed in 1998, Desklite seems to be able to interact with x64 program windows... :shock:

EDIT2: Autosizer current version is 1.71 (Warning: not portable, plus installer autolaunches once finished).
