  1. Start Menu Reposition to center monitor of 3 monitor wide screen setup


    I have just upgraded from win 7 ultimate to win 10 pro on my gaming computer. I have 3 monitors set to act as one wide desktop. Currently the Win 10 start menu positions to the far left of the left monitor. Is there a way to reposition it (in it's entirety) to he center monitor (in other words the center of the wide screen desktop) including the far left column of the start menu? I know I can drag all the icons to the center screen but that still leaves the left hand column all the way to the left which is not what I want.

    :)

    Windows 10 Apps on twin monitors

    I have upgraded to Windows 10.

    I have a twin monitor setup.

    In 8.1 if I clicked on a task bar icon, or full screen live tile, the program started on the same monitor as the task bar.

    In 10 the program always opens on the main monitor.

    The display is "extended" over the two monitors and works fine other than this.

    I can reposition the program to the second monitor, but once closed it will always reopen on the main monitor.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Hi, you can set it full screen, but I doubt that's what you'd want.

  5. No, I did that and it still show everything to the left. Was able to move icons to center screen but the left column will not move from left edge of left monitor.

    That's the limit of what you can do I'm afraid. I've not seen a start menu replacement that isn't left oriented. And please note that if you have categorised start menu folders and sub-sub folders inherited from Win 7, Win 10's start menu extracts the shortcuts from the deeper folders and lists them alphabetically.

    Think

    from different programs.

    You may find you like Classic Shell much better (free). That gives you all the features of XP and Win 7 menus and more. But still left oriented.

  7. I don't think you can do that when you have your display spanned across multiple monitors. As far as Windows is concerned its just one big monitor. Your only options are top bottom, left side or right side. In the normal Windows Extend mode the Start menu is on all monitors. That's the way I run my triple monitor setup.
