In the tool bar one has the "Zoom view to drawing extents" icon.

On some drawings, when I click on this icon, the drawing fills the screen as I require them to be positioned (at 90%).

But on other drawings, when I click on the icon for them to fill the screen, they end up in the top right quadrant of the monitor/screen - every time.

How do I set for it to fill the screen every time I click that particular icon?

There is no clutter elsewhere on the file causing the drawing to be pushed to the top right quadrant - I do a blanket erase of areas around the drawing.

And I have toggled "Free Zoom" on in the Zoom menu.

There must be some setting for the zoom extents to be fixed as required when clicking the icon - I just cannot find it.

Will be grateful for direction.

Are you using xref's? Could be something in the xref that has it's layer hidden. Could also be something within a symbol?

Just a couple of thoughts.
