How to open Chrome Portable with predefined window size? (HELP)

I want to open Chrome Portable windows on my laptop screen. With 2 Chrome Profiles for 2 halves of the screen. Or 4 Chrome Profiles for the 4 corners of the screen. How to do so?
Please let me know. Thanks very much

Window Manager

I'd use a window manager to handle that. Windows 10 can do it in halves. I think Windows 11 can do quarters now. A third party window utility could help, too.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Don't Use Myself

I don't use one myself. I think AquaSnap Portable may fit your needs if you only have a single screen. You can Google for others. Note that this won't be automatic, you'll need to arrange them yourself each time I think.

THANKS SIR ^_^

Thanks for advices. I'll try to figure it out, hope it works with Chrome Portable (I'm having a lot of trouble related to my work, I dream of being an actor, not a programmer)

Try Sizer

http://brianapps.net/sizer4/ It can be used as a portable, I use it that way myself but I'll leave you figure out how.

Use Portable Apps on both Flash Drive and HDD/SSD.

How to Make Sizer Portable

(1) Goto http://www.brianapps.net/sizer4/

(2) Download the "binaries only" zip file of Sizer

(3) Unpack the zip file to a folder of your choice (let's say "W:\Sizer")

(4) Launch Sizer.exe

(5) On launch a folder "Sizer4" will be created in the %appdata% location on your system. If you are not sure where that is read this https://www.lifewire.com/find-and-use-the-appdata-folder-in-windows-4771752 In any case, open that folder.

(6) Right click on the Sizer icon in your System Tray and select to "Configure Sizer..."

(7) In the dialogue that opens up click on the Load/Save tab. Then click on the "Apply" button. Sizer will create a file titled "sizer.xml" in the %appdata% Sizer4 folder. Click on the Okay button to exit the dialogue.

(8) Copy the file sizer.xml from the %appdata% location into the W:\Sizer folder you created in step (3) above.

(9) Right-click on Sizer in the System Tray and choose Exit.

(10) Now launch Sizer again and you will find that it will use the configuration file sizer.xml in the location W:\Sizer

The long and the short of all this is that if Sizer finds a configuration file (sizer.xml) in the same folder that sizer.exe is launched from it will use that configuration file (not the file in %appdata%) and hence you have made your Sizer a portable application. If that is what you want you can delete the Sizer4 folder in %appdata% as you don't need it now, or you can leave it in place, it won't do any harm. Just remember that now when you make your own custom window size configurations to Sizer that it will save your custom configurations in the sizer.xml file that is located in W:\Sizer.

It's a great little program Sizer, have used it for years.

Have a Good Scratch Around the Sizer Website

This will give you some idea of how Sizer works and how to configure pre-defined window sizes to suit you preferences. Note that the user instructions there won't all apply as you using Sizer as a portable. Also some of the instructions are out of date so you really need to experiment a bit to see how it all works.
