There are a lot of programs, which cannot remember what was its last window size. I need a program, which works in the background, and I can configure it, to resize all launched programs/windows on the fly.

For example, if I open my SSH client, I want it to auto resize its window to a given size. When I open another application I want it to auto resize/position it.

Is there such a tool in the wild? The prog called 'Auto Window Manager' just doesnt fit my needs. And I dont want to write autohotkey / etc. scripts for each prog I launch, so I need a generalized solution for this problem.

"The prog called 'Auto Window Manager' just doesnt fit my needs." - how so? – John T Oct 20 '10 at 23:04
Because it just does not work. – Damancer Nov 4 '10 at 8:27

You can check WinSize2, it's made with AHK.

For each program you can save settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Z. When you launch the program next time it will be moved to saved position with saved size.

Does WinSize2 support tool windows? – Arne Evertsson Sep 19 '13 at 6:36
