    Window Location (multiple screens)


    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?

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