Getting tax program to open multi screens in correct spots

Tony Mauro
3 discussion posts
We use Drake software for our tax clients and I have a Dell 49" single monitor. The program once open uses many different screens that pop open when you click thru different forms on the tax return. The problem is that every form opens to a full screen even though I have DF set to open it on the left. The main program opens this way, but every time I click on a new form I can't get it sized. I need them to stay on the side of the screen I pick. Any ideas? Thanks.

When one of those forms is open, if you press Win + Left or Win + Right on the keyboard, does it resize to half the screen?

Keith,
Yes that works. However, when we close a particular window and re-open, it goes back to full screen. So as we are in and out of windows (forms) for preparing a return, we are constantly having to hit Win + L or R. What makes is tricky is we have the previous year up on the left side of the screen for reference and as we start bouncing around, it is very easy to get confused on which year you are on as both look the same. I think it is a software issue, but still trying to figure out. We have used Drake for 18 years, but we have always had 2 physical screens so it was not a problem.

Ok, that's good! It should be possible to automate that using Trigger rules for the application, assuming the window title for each of those windows is different. Please see this guide for details on the Triggers feature, and if you have any further questions, definitely let me know: Working with Triggers

Fantastic! It worked. Took a little playing, but that is a great feature. Thanks again.
