How do I force a program to open on a second monitor?
Posted on 2008-10-17
I'm currently using a dual monitor setup for my laptop and I'm wondering how/if I can force programs to open on the second monitor.
Usually the way I have done this in the past is to open a program, drag it to the second monitor and then usually once I close it, the program will remember what screen it was on before.
What I'm wondering is if there is any tag that I can throw on the end of the program shortcut to force it to open in the second monitor. To give you an example:
I can force Warcraft 3 to open in "Window Mode" by adding a "-window" tag to the end of the shortcut.
Target: "C:\Program Files\Warcraft 3\WC3.exe"
To force it into Window Mode (Non-fullscreen):
Target: "C:\Program Files\Warcraft 3\WC3.exe" -window
Is there an option that I can use that would force the shortcut to open in monitor 2? Something like "-monitor 2" or something like that?
I would also be open to using third party software if there is any available that allows me to manage where an application opens by default.
