Managing windows when some monitors are turned off...
« on: May 21, 2017, 12:43:32 PM »
Sometimes becomes unconfortable my six monitores when I need less.
The windows explorer windows are memorized in one monitor in particular (something very useful ordinarily) or the kmplayer windows when watching a movie or the browser window, etc.
I would like sometimes have two or three monitors only, but I need to turn on additional monitors to control additional windows.

Exist an utility to manage this ? Able to change the program window position without turn on the corresponding monitor ?

Best Regards

Shift-right-click the taskbar icon, select Move, use cursor keys to move the window in the direction of a turned-on monitor. When Move is greyed out in the menu then the window is maximized, use Restore first to un-maximize it, and repeat the Shift-right-click/Move as described.

Goes well in almost any case.
but with kmplayer don't goes for me. Perhaps something in my configuration. But I can try with another media player.
Also don't work for me with Pspad ( a notepad alternative) .
Works fine for me with windows explorer windows (even selecting the miniature over the the taskbar)
With Acrobat or Word goes well when the window in not maximized.
All my attempts with kmplayer don't go well for me.
Best Regards.

Note : For me your answer is pretty good and enough, just because acrobat and word are in the most usual monitors.

Sounds like a specific kmplayer issue, it might give similar issues when using other tools for doing the same, though I don't use (or have) kmplayer here.

Also don't work for me with Pspad ( a notepad alternative) .
This is an issue with PSPad, confirmed, should be reported in the PSPad forum, IMHO.
