  1. Window Location (multiple screens)


    Hi,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to either find a setting or a tool to fulfill my request.

    For years I've been irritated by one small issue with Windows, and that is window location. If you have multiple screens, I feel it should be standard procedure to place the window on the screen you opened it from.

    Is there any tool or registry tweak that would allow this?

    Thanks.

    :)

  3. Multiple screens, multiple backgrounds

    I use three monitor displays for work. I have my computer setup to show different backgrounds on my monitors to give me variety. I really hate the shuffle feature when showing different backgrounds. I want to keep displaying multiple backgrounds, but do
    not want the shuffle. Is there a way to disable shuffle and keep different backgrounds? If not, please fix this issue.

    Thank you in advance!

    The deciding factor is on which display a program / app was last closed. By default program windows open on that display.
