ITunes 9.2 Window Placement

by flabouve / July 5, 2010 3:24 AM PDT

Since installing iTunes 9.2 I have not been able to permanently place a minimized iTunes window at the bottom. I can manually place it there, but each time I enlarge it, and then minimize it again, it returns to the bottom of the screen at a level above the dock. Is there a way to make it remember to stay at the very bottom of the screen?

Strange behavior
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / July 6, 2010 10:06 AM PDT

Hitting the Orange button does not place the window in the left hand side of the dock?

What about other open windows, do they exhibit the same behavior?

If the answer is yes, then you may want to get rid of the Finder preferences.

You will find them in users/yourusername/library/Preferences/

Drag that file onto the desktop and either log out and then back in
Command + Option + Esc and tell Finder to Force Quit.

I prefer the log out method.

In reply to: Strange behavior

It's the green button that minimizes and places the window. After initially minimizing and placing the iTunes window in the lower, right-hand corner, subsequently pressing of the green button should enlarge the window, and another press should again minimize and replace it to its previous spot. However, it will only replace it to the right-hand corner leaving enough space below for the dock to be extended to the corner, which in my case is NEVER extended to the corner because I prefer my minimized iTunes window there. BTW, it exhibits the same behavior in the left-hand corner.

I get that some programer thought that the entire bottom line should be reserved for the dock, but that has always been available to the dock by placing other windows above the dock. It just seems to me that they took away some flexibility with this latest change. I was hoping that some one had a software fix.

Placement of other windows is not a problem, and this iTunes behavior only began after upgrading to Version 9.2. I did redo the finder preferences, but that didn't solve the problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
