I still can't get real Apps (not desktop programs) to remember which display they opened last but it's not great indifference because I don't use same ones all the time, will have to look at it though.
    Yes and thanks again for helping me out in choosing a card. A doozy of a card it is.

    My wife thinks I'm nuts with duo monitors. Wait til she sees 3.

    BTW, I also changed the allocation of Mem in my BIOS as you suggested. Made the old Acer much quicker. Of course the card made the bigger difference.

They all move to that single screen. then when you switch back to multi monitors, you need to reposition them again. I'm spoiled now, I run dual monitors on my laptop. Sometimes I unplug the second monitor before shutting down and it messes things up.
    It wouldn't do that in same session but now I tried with rebooting and it sticks, even in same session, funny stuff, I tried it with Calc only but now it works with all Apps. Tnx.

    I can do that in W7 & W10.

    Apparently I'm not the only one:

    Nice trick.

    I like the simplicity of the Start Menu in 10. It's fast to use, both with mouse and keyboard, and it gets the job done. It does what it is designed to do, is effortless and easy to use.

    Win key and start typing, I can find anything on my computer or on the Interwebs. If I know the name of the executable and feel that Cortana is a bit slow sometimes, Win + R + name of the executable launches any program on my system.

    All in all, Start & integrated Cortana makes the use of Windows 10 really easy.
