(How to make windows remember the positions you left them on)

-Right click on top of the window you want it to remember the position
-Select "Advanced"
-Choose "Special Windows Settings"
-Click the Geometry Tab

And well this is what i did, maybe you dont have to do it all but heres
what i did...

-click all the left checkboxe's exept placement
-choose "remember" on all the drop down menus at the right side.
click Ok or Apply or whatever...

Now the window respects you :-D
