WindowTack ensures that when running in windowed mode, the position of the render window is remembered and restored on subsequent runs.

WindowTack saves and restores the positions of various Orbiter windows. Every time you move a window, WindowTack saves its position. Next time you open it, WindowTack will move the window to its last saved position.

Some examples of windows saved and restored by WindowTack:
  
Initially, the render window will be centered on the primary screen. Afterwards, the render window will appear at exactly the same place where it was when you last ran Orbiter. In full-screen mode WindowTack simply does nothing.

* Launchpad (not really relevant in 2010 now that the Launchpad always restores its own position)
  
WindowTack remembers window position separately for each screen resolution and each window size, and will remember the position even if you manage to crash Orbiter or terminate the process - making it addon developer friendly.

WindowTack saves and restores the positions of various Orbiter windows. Every time you move a window, WindowTack saves its position. Next time you open it, WindowTack will move the window to its last saved position. Some examples of windows saved and restored by WindowTack:

  • main render window in “windowed” mode;
  • main menu (F4);
  • ship selection window (F3);
  • Launchpad (not really relevant in 2010 now that the Launchpad always restores its own position)

WindowTack remembers window position separately for each screen resolution, and will remember the position even if you manage to crash Orbiter or terminate the process - making it addon developer friendly.

Tested to work with Orbiter 2006 P1 and Orbiter 2010.
