When you use ShellExecute(), it all depends on the browser what's default on the PC. Then would I recommend your _IECreate() script. Then you always know what browser is used: Yep, Windows Internet Explorer.

If you also know the title of the page you want to open (in this case Google) and you know how the title of IE is made, you can make with these things the title of the window. In this case it's: (title of page) - Windows Internet Explorer.

Then simply use WinMove("Google - Windows Internet Explorer", "", xpos, ypos) and move it to the position you want. :)

PowerSlide2UnlockiPhone look-a-like program you can use to lock your pc, you can't access your desktop again until the password is entered and the slider slided to the right. (really proud of it)-- After a time AutoIt and Windows, I switched to Mac. Don't expect me to answer anymore.
