Joplin does not store windows size

Operating system


Joplin version


Desktop version info

Joplin 2.14.22 (prod, win32)
Sync-Version: 3
Profil-Version: 46

What issue do you have?

Joplin does not remember the windows size I prefer on start up. I have to manually resize the window every time I restart the PC. It fine, when I close the window and restart the application, but the moment I restart the PC, it does not remember the last window size and position. While this a minor inconvenience, it is still somewhat annoying and a bug.

Is it possible, that it has to do with my monitor? I am using a 49" Samsung G9 Neo. Maybe the 32:9 format is a problem for Joplin?

@DonDahlmann welcome to the forum.

I am another user not a developer but I have tried to duplicate what you are seeing and I have managed it under certain circumstances.

Joplin stores the window size and position in a file called window-state-prod.json and from my testing it seems that the window settings are stored when Joplin is quit (File > Quit). However if Joplin is running when the system is shut down it appears that window-state-prod.json does not get updated. So when you open Joplin after a reboot it reverts to the size that is stored in window-state-prod.json and not what it was when you last used Joplin.

As a work-around try setting the Joplin window to where you want it and what size. Then Fully Quit Joplin (File > Quit or ctrl+Q or right-click the tray icon & select Quit) so window-state-prod.json gets updated. Hopefully after that even if you reboot / shut down when Joplin is running the window will open at the size and position you want it to the next time Joplin is used.

Thank you so much, that helped. I had to force close it and stopp any background tasks. But it finally worked.
