app loads on wrong monitor.

been using DF for years and love it. I've never had this issue before but it cropped up today after I had to make some changes to the cables connecting my two monitors. When I start Chrome it loads in the wrong window. Without display fusion it correctly loads in monitor 2, but with DF loaded, Chrome appears to load (correctly) in monitor 2, but only for a millisecond and then it jumps to monitor 2 (incorect!). My other programs appear to work correctly. Also normally when a web site asks me to open or save a file, windows explorer opens in the same window, but simualarly WE opens for a millisecond in the same monitor and window, then jumps to the other monitor. (Monitor 1 is primary)

Hey David,

Do you have any triggers set up for moving windows? And are you opening the programs through the taskbar, or through your desktop?

Thanks!

I don't even know what a trigger is! so no I am not. it makes no difference wether i open it from the desktop, start menu, or even directly from the application file in the program files/google/application directory

Hey David,

Can you open up Display Fusion settings > Functions > Add > Set the event to window created > set Process Filename to all applications > Click "Add" under the actions pane, and select "Move window to mouse cursor monitor"

Give this a shot and let me know the results.

Thanks!

sorry under "functions" there is no "add" Closest I can find would be "custom function" then "add custom function" but then there is nothing close to "process filename....or "move window to mouse cursor monitor" I'm using v9.7

Hey David,

I'm sorry, I gave you the wrong path. Here's where you'll want to go:
open up Display Fusion settings > Triggers > Add > Set the event to window created > set Process Filename to all applications > Click "Add" under the actions pane, and select "Move window to mouse cursor monitor"

Thanks!

never mind... after 2 hours of frustration it's working properly. But it appears to have been a Windows issue. I uninstalled DF and then found similar, but not identical issues without DF running. I ended up deleting the chrome shortcut on my desktop by mistake and when I hit the "undo delete" button it reappeared but everything now seems to work correctly.... yeah, I know. go figure. anyway you can close this thread.
