    App launch location when using multiple monitors


    Hey Everyone,

    I use multiple monitors while at work (As I assume most people do now). One quirk I have seen on Windows 8/8.1 and now Windows 10 is how the start menu launches applications. Now that Windows has start menu access on all monitors is there a way to force the apps to launch on the monitor they are being launched from? For example, I use the start menu on Monitor 3 I would expect the app to launch on Monitor 3 not Monitor 1.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Mine remember what monitor they were last launched on. I can launch an App or Program, move it to the monitor I want it on and close it. Then after it launches on that monitor. In Windows 10 anyway. I think the first time you launch they open on what ever monitor is set as Main.
