Force particular application to open in specified monitor

Hi. This is not a big deal, rather an irritation that's been bugging me for ages.
Normally of course, windows open in the same location as where they were when last closed. But I have one misbehaving application (Remote Desktop Connection) which always opens on the secondary monitor even if it was on the primary when last closed. It always used to open on the primary monitor but I once closed it whilst it was on the secondary and now it always opens on the secondary. Because this is unusual behaviour for Windows, I wonder if DisplayFusion may be a factor.
Is there a setting within DisplayFusion to force a specified application to open on a specific monitor?

Hello,

Strange, are you opening the application through the taskbar?

Also, if you close down DisplayFusion, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

Hi, thank you for your interest.
I start Remote Desktop from a desktop icon and no it doesn't make any difference whether DisplayFusion is running or not, that is why I assumed it was something peculiar to Remote Desktop and whether there was a setting in DisplayFusion that could force RD to open on the Secondary.

Hello,

I've attached a trigger below that you can copy that should do this. You can adjust the "Process Filename" to the RDP application, along with the selected monitor you would like it moved to when the window is created.

Hope that helps!

Hi, that works perfectly. V. grateful, I would never have worked that out on my own!
