Second monitor help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just set up a second monitor and it's great only thing is i have some shorcuts on the second monitor and when i click on them they open in my first! I do not want this is there any way i can set the shortcuts on the second monitor to open on the second monitor? Thanks. P.S i know windows remembers where you last closed it but that means that if i open my downloads folder on my second monitor the next type i open control panel that opens in my second monitor. Thanks in advance!!!

Unfortunately windows' window manager controls the position based on display logic. You're right in what you say - a lot of applications store their last position in the registry and, once opened again, open on that monitor.

Do you know the SHIFT+WIN KEY+LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN combination to quickly switch windows accross monitors? I use that a lot
