I spend a lot of time stretching & resizing child windows of apps to fit each monitor.
Would it be possible to add a button to child windows titlebar that would maximize it to it's monitor.
Here's what it would look like with dual monitors.

I know Jon has spent a lot of time trying to avoid this (see image)...

I'm not sure I understand. Your screen shoot doesn't show any child windows...

Sorry for the confusion, they are child windows of Cinema 4D. They're just on the second monitor.

@BazzaCAD: Sorry, DisplayFusion only adds TitleBar Buttons to windows which are considered to be "top-level" windows. There are too many application-specific "gotchas" with child windows, so I don't support them with the TitleBar Buttons right now.
