I like to use the right 85% of my screen, leaving the left two colums of desktop icons showing. When I open the first window in either IE7 and/or M. Firefox, it opens where I want it, but a second window in either browser will not; for IE, the second usually opens to the far left, (but is normally still the same size). I think that if that 'second' is closed and then re-opened, it usually but not always opens where it last had been. Firefox seems less regular, sometimes doing so, sometimes not, but I use multi-windoows much less with it.
I can and do just move the windows, and resize it if necessary, but was wondering if a way exists to set the program so the browser windows always open in the same place? Would the same be true of other windows, like pictures or documents?

I am running Windows XP, home eddition, SP2.

Both IE and Firefox now support the use of tabs. Instead of opening a new instance of a browser just open a new tab in the window that's open on the right of your screen. You then don't need to worry about where a second window will appear.

That isn't an acceptable option to me, so my question still remains.
Thanks for taking the time to reply though.
