Symptom

Last setting in Windows has to be disabled

Cause

You do not want Windows to save the last window settings.

Solution

If you are closing a window, Windows is memorizing the size of the last window and opens new windows in the same size. If you don't want this behavior you have to change a registry key.


You have to search for the following entry "Hkey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer". Under this entry there has to been the key "NoSaveSettings".

If value of this key is 1 then the settings will be saved. If the key is 0 the the settings won't be saved.
