I use Visual Studio 2005 with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server set
up as my current source control plug-in. when I compare the
differences between historical versions of a source controlled file
(using File | Source Control | Compare... or any other method) the
Differences window always opens centered on my primary display in a
restored state and is about 75% the width of the display and 75% the
height of the display.  Ideally I would like to be able to have the
position of the window remembered, meaning that if I move it or if I
maximize it and close it, the next time I see that window it will be
in the same location.  I would also be satisfied if I can make a
change somewhere (for example to a file or a registry entry) that will
always make the window open in a particular location (I want to be
able to have the window split across two side-by-side displays and
take up 100% of the width and the top 80% of the height of the
combined displays.)
