    How to stop apps from moving from one monitor to another upon monitors

    I have two monitors. One uses dual DVI cable and one uses DisplayPort. When the monitors wake up after a sleep, the apps on the DVI monitor move to the DisplayPort monitor. This probably has to do with the difference when Windows senses which monitor is active first.

    Is there a way to stop the apps from moving? Is there a tool which restores the apps positions after a wake up?

    I have found a work-around.
    Using Sysinternals ProcessMonitor I found that Windows was accessing the following Registry path;

    My system had three entries;

    Under each is a tree called "00" two of the keys are

    Under "00" was another branch also called "00" two of the keys are;

    The first two of the configs (ie DELF00... & QHD3...) the above keys were 1440x900,
    so they were not involved.
    The third (SIMULATED...) were set to 1024x768.
    I changed these to 1600x900 and the problem was solved.
    Further I changed resolution (via control panel) to 1920x1080, the moving/resize issue returned,
    but the lower right corner was set to 1600x900, ie the SIMULATED... settings.
    So for some reason one of the configs does not get set correctly.
    I don't know why there are three configs, I have only ever used one monitor.
    Hope this helps someone out there...
