Multi-monitor display wall issues

I have a 6 monitor setup for one of our departments. The goal is to open 3 websites in IE, one in Chrome, and a security camera program all maximized on different monitors. The preference would be to set a hotkey and the user could just log in, hit the key combo, and everything would open in the correct location. I can get some of this to work, but not reliably. As I add more to the same script, it seems to get worse. Sometimes it will stack the windows on one monitor, and it seems to ignore another monitor entirely no matter what I do.

I'm not a programmer, so I just looked through the scripted macros here. Would I be better off doing seperate functions? I can post the script I'm trying to use if that would help.

Thanks!

I would actually try doing this with Custom (not Scripted) Functions and Trigger rules first. There's a bit of setup involved but it's hopefully more intuitive than trying to code it from scratch :)

Please see this guide for details: Launching and Positioning an Application on Startup

Note that for website windows, there are a couple of extra conditions you'll want to set in the Trigger rule for moving the window. You should put part or all of the page title in the "Window Text" condition, and set the "Delay before checking match conditions" to something like 1000 or 2000 to allow time for the page to load.

Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.

Thanks!

I did get the script to work. When I modified your scripted function (Open 3 Sites Maximized on 3 Monitors (Internet Explorer)) I neglected to add the trailing "/" when I changed the URLs. However, launching and positioning on startup was a better solution. Thank you.
