Please advise what and where I need to read to implement such a scenario (I think it is quite common):

- Close all Windows on all displays
- Open website asdf.com in default browser and positon at Display1 (left half)
- Open website jkl.com in default browser and positon at Display1 (right half)
(do it eiter for Display2 and Display3)

Thank you in advance

"Open Multiple Websites on Specific Monitors" function by Keith Lammers is this what I need?

That one won't quite do what you're looking for, I may have to write up a new one. Is this being used on a machine that's used for other purposes as well? Or is this machine just used to display those sites? If it's just for displaying websites, CloudShow might be a better product for you

Thanks for your answer!

I realized that your solution can do a lot of things, but do not expect that it will solve all the problems "out of the box". As a result, for this task, I created simple.bat file that runs multiple browsers

@echo off
start chrome /new-window https://website1.com/
start chrome /new-window https://website2.com/
exit


The next step I going to save it in "Window Position Profile", set key combination.

And then create script shortcut that run exec.bat file with websites and then apply Window Position Profile.

When I asked about a possible solution, I assumed that all this could be done using DisplayFusion. It is ok, but a little bit complicated.

p.s. Should I asked the my last relevant question in the new topic? - It is about DisplayFusion additional configuration to work with Win+P shortcut, because without changing the default settings, creating new triggers, etc. windows do not return to their place, after switching from single back to three monitors

You should make it more user-friendly, I'm sure millions of office clerks that employers buy the second monitor, so that they spend their time more effectively in social networks, would love to use your solution, but they will not create exec.bat files to run browsers) create new keyboard shortcuts, triggers, etc. But without such features, why would they need additional software

Glad to hear you found a solution. We are planning to add a way to launch the websites with the Window Position Profiles, so we will definitely let you know when we have.

Regarding the window positions with Win + P, you can do this:

  • Save each monitor configuration as a Monitor Profile
  • In the Monitor Configuration window, click Manage Monitor Profiles, and assign the Window Position Profile

Hope that helps!
