Is there a hotkey or something to center a program? Like say I open a new Notepad session, it tends to open around the bottom left corner. Is there a way to center it on the screen?

Thanks.

Install AutoHotKey and load this script:

#c::
  WinGetActiveStats Title, Width, Height, X,Y
  WinMove, %Title%,, (A_ScreenWidth-Width)/2, (A_ScreenHeight-Height)/2

The #c means "Windows Key + c", so this defines an action which will center the current (active) window when you press Win+c. You could of course use some other keyboard shortcut if you prefer.
