    Change Start Menu location based on number of monitors


    I have two desktops (work and home) with more than one screen, on these computers, I would like my start menu on the far right side of the right screen.

    However, on computers with only screen (my laptop), I would like my start menu along the bottom.

    Is there any way to set up an IF statement that places the start menu in a location based on the number of screens or, worst case, stop that property from updating across computers?

    To stop syncing your settings across PCs, have a look at this: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...a.html#option4

    I guess that start menu location is under the "Other Windows settings" slider?

    Any idea what else is there? Like I said, I only care about the start menu location, everything else I'd like to sync (not to mention if I could set up some sort of script that looked for number of monitors connected and adjusted accordingly, that would be awesome)

    Settings/System/Display: make far right monitor my main display,
    put taskbar on the right side.
