    Win 10

    Open an application on the same screen from which it is launched

    Hi, I just got windows 10 and I think the idea to put a copy of the taskbar on everyone of my 3 screens is great. However whenever I launch a program windows starts it (presumably) on the screen where it was last closed. Is there any way to launch an application on the same screen that it was selected? To clarify if I click on my MS Word button pinned to the task bar on screen 2 can I get MS Word to launch on screen 2 regardless of where it was closed last.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
