It’s always great to receive Mac automation question from my subscribers. This most recent one asks:

Hello! I’d like to know if there is a way to automatically open app windows so that when you open the app, the window is automatically sized and placed on the screen in a certain manner each time? For example, I like to have my Mail app on the left side, and then open Messages in the upper right corner.

To respond to the question, I created a 3 minute video to show how to use Keyboard Maestro and its application trigger feature to automatically resize and reposition a window when the application is launched.

Note, the video does assume that you have some basic knowledge of using Keyboard Maestro.

Here’s another article about using application triggers. Let me know in the comment section below if you have any questions.
