Is there a way to RESET notepad to open to its DEFAULT size?

I'm training a BASIC pc course (Super basic to seniors and lower class peeps).

One of the things I teach them is resizing windows and I use notepad to do so.

First class went great. However, when the second class opened notepad, it opened with the various and mishapen windows the previous class had made and closed notepad with.

So, is there a regedit key I can delete/edit or some other thing I do to reset notepad to its default size (And font -- some of the seniors needed to really bump it up).

Gratzie in advance.

    Have them Use the restore button (before closing) the APP.
  2. Yeah.. Little too late for that. Also RESTORE doesn't work once you have them open, rezise, close, reopen, move, place a new window on top of that window, etc. etc.

    And finally, which RESTORE are you referring to? My response above refers to the middle button in the top right window. Did you even try your suggestion before you shot out your reply? Because it simply does not do what you think it does.

    NO ! - As a matter of fact, I mis-read your post. Happens sometimes.
  4. And that's fine. I thank you for your attempt to answer all the same :)

    But, that window size data has to be getting stored SOMEWHERE.

    Anyone?

  7. Ya know, I had looked in there before, and stopped st fsavewindowsize. Found the corrordinates section and now I just have to find a way to easily reset them (I have to go back and re-learn how to make an executable file that writes to the regedit...)

    Thank!
