I know there's an old plugin for multi-monitor setups that says it includes the option to center on the screen; but frankly, I don't need the additional functionality -- I'd just like for FARR to pop back back up in the middle every time it's launched, instead of maybe being all the way up at the top (like if I had previously listed a large directory's contents).  I switched over from Launchy, and I'm really missing that setting.  I hope something like that wouldn't be too hard to implement?

By the way, thanks for writing FARR. cheesy  It's an awesome program, and makes life in an alternate Windows shell much more enjoyable.  smiley

I agree, it seems like a good idea and easy to add -- i will add an option for it.  It could be especially useful for multimonitor users, to have it appear centered on "current" monitor.

The multi-monitor functionality can be disabled in the plugin if you only want the centering (although with one monitor it doesn't make a difference).

... It could be especially useful for multimonitor users, to have it appear centered on "current" monitor.
That would make the multi-monitor plugin mostly obsolete, which would not be a bad thing Wink

I only have one screen, but at least in that situation it appears to work in the latest:

[Feature] New option to position FARR window centered on current monitor when triggered.
