Starting applications on secondary monitor

Hi,
Is it possible to set certain applications to be invoked in the secondary monitor?
I have a small laptop screen and a large secondary and have to move each window of a new app to the secondary with CTRL-Win-X and would like to save that.
TIA

I'm not using a laptop, but I have certain apps that start in the second window automatically after I've used [Ctrl][Win][x]; Outlook shows up there every time I log in. I used [Ctrl][Win][x] to move it there and then maximized it. I don't think I did anything else to it.

The Windows Explorer is invoked where it was last closed, which might be on the secondary monitor.
I guess this is true for Office apps. too.
My problem is with all other apps. that do not remember their last location.

This is not something I had planned on including in DisplayFusion, but I have added to my future wishlist to play around with for a future release.

Thanks,
Jon

Hi mosheco,

It's also possible that Windows doesn't remember the position
because by default it only rembers 400 folders.
To change that check the following links

If you want to do it the easy way:

Go to #2

Simple Utility -Multi monitor Taskbar
http://www.mediachance.com/free/multimon.htm
Puts a button on the title bar to move to other monitor.
Or use MultiArrows only - same page - no taskbar

Use a program like HydraVision (ATI)
Uses position memory as well.
NVidea may have something similar.

Thanks.
Actually I am using Vista so I don't know which stuff still holds.
In any case 400 is way over what I need.

Don't be too sure, 400 is soon used up,unless you're a minimal user
and only do some email,write a few documents and surf the web a little.
In that case Vista is a waste of money :)

For the window positioning request, it looks like most windows applications handle this very inconsistently. Some remember their position while others don't. After playing around with this feature I don't think it is something I will include with DisplayFusion.
