  1. specify specific virtual desktop to open on specific monitor


    What I want to do is:
    I have setup 3 virtual desktops, and I have 3 monitors - my laptop, 1 viewsonic and 1 hanns monitors.
    So I want to have each desktop assigned to specific monitor always. When I switch to that desktop, it should automatically open on the assigned monitor.

    Is there a way to do this?
    I have learned how to open specific apps on specific virtual desktop by using a .bat file. If there is any way to use that for this, it would be great.

    thanks

    Startup items to specific virtual desktop

    How can I create shortcuts in the Startup folder and tell those programs to startup on a specific virtual desktop?

    All I can find is minimized/maximized/normal, but not really anything else. I would to be able to specify in a shortcut which virtual desktop to start the program on. How can I do that?

    Especially very handy for autostart programs, i.e. the ones in the Startup folder.
