Save window positions and sizes and restore them when the app is reopened.


This plugin requires a Rust version of at least 1.65

There are three general methods of installation that we can recommend.

  1. Use crates.io and npm (easiest, and requires you to trust that our publishing pipeline worked)
  2. Pull sources directly from Github using git tags / revision hashes (most secure)
  3. Git submodule install this repo in your tauri project and then use file protocol to ingest the source (most secure, but inconvenient to use)

Install the Core plugin by adding the following to your Cargo.toml file:


tauri-plugin-window-state = "2.0.0-alpha"
# alternatively with Git:
tauri-plugin-window-state = { git = "https://github.com/tauri-apps/plugins-workspace", branch = "v2" }

You can install the JavaScript Guest bindings using your preferred JavaScript package manager:

Note: Since most JavaScript package managers are unable to install packages from git monorepos we provide read-only mirrors of each plugin. This makes installation option 2 more ergonomic to use.

pnpm add @tauri-apps/plugin-window-state
# or
npm add @tauri-apps/plugin-window-state
# or
yarn add @tauri-apps/plugin-window-state

# alternatively with Git:
pnpm add https://github.com/tauri-apps/tauri-plugin-window-state#v2
# or
npm add https://github.com/tauri-apps/tauri-plugin-window-state#v2
# or
yarn add https://github.com/tauri-apps/tauri-plugin-window-state#v2


First you need to register the core plugin with Tauri:


fn main() {
        .expect("error while running tauri application");

Afterwards all windows will remember their state when the app is being closed and will restore to their previous state on the next launch.

Optionally you can also tell the plugin to save the state of all open window to disk by using the save_window_state() method exposed by the AppHandleExt trait:

use tauri_plugin_window_state::{AppHandleExt, StateFlags};

// `tauri::AppHandle` now has the following additional method
app.save_window_state(StateFlags::all()); // will save the state of all open windows to disk

or through Javascript

import { saveWindowState, StateFlags } from "@tauri-apps/plugin-window-state";


To manually restore a windows state from disk you can call the restore_state() method exposed by the WindowExt trait:

use tauri_plugin_window_state::{WindowExt, StateFlags};

// all `Window` types now have the following additional method
window.restore_state(StateFlags::all()); // will restore the windows state from disk

or through Javascript

import {
} from "@tauri-apps/plugin-window-state";
