Quick question about window position profiles

So I did some googling in order to find a solution to my issue. Mainly I had a few programs that simply do not/would not save their window location no matter what I did.

This was a huuuge hinderance since with multiple displays - I have several things that load on startup based on preference, and several that are mandatory for what I do.

Also considering all the issues SLI and multiple displays presents, changing drivers is a relatively frequent occurrence which leaves me re setting up all my window locations etc.

Anyways, Razer Synapse 3. Every time i restart the pc, and double click the icon it starts in the same spot - its just the wrong spot. Ive sent feedback to razer several times suggesting they add a save window location feature like basically EVERY modern program since ... ever.

Still I began looking for another solution since something that I imagine is simple to add, was ignored.

I found displayfusion had the feature and began using it. The only shortcoming is it appears to save the windows location the window has to actually be open and on screen at the time.

I opened everything including razer synapse 3, and positioned it where I wanted it to be. Saved it. When the time came I applied the profile. Most things went to the location I had saved. The two things im struggling with not returning to their position are Razer Synapse 3 and MSI Afterburner's monitor.

I checked in the saved profile and the windows seem to be named properly, they just dont move back for whatever reason :(

Curious if it can be looked into or any suggestions given?

Thanks for the time/help!

If you focus Synapse or Afterburner and press Ctrl + Win + X, does it move to the next monitor? It may be that those apps are completely ignoring the SetWindowPos commands that we send to them to get them to move

Hi and thank you for getting back.

Ironically enough I don’t think that’s it. Or maybe it is.

For starters if I close afterburner and re open - it saves its location. Synapse does not.

Meanwhile regardless of what I ctrl win x on, it doesn’t do anything ><

It’s always something isn’t it? Windows is the bane of us ocd folk :p

Might just be that key combinations are disabled in the DisplayFusion Settings. Can you check the Settings > Functions tab to see if Key Combinations are enabled, and also that the Ctrl + Win + X combination is assigned to the Move Window to Next Monitor function?

Another test would be to try the Win + Shift + Left/Right keyboard shortcuts on those windows. These are Windows keyboard shortcuts.
