How to adjust the default message box location when using the /span feature of RDP

Hello all;

I have a customer who is strictly a Win2003 terminal services environment.  All of the clients are Wyse thin clients running WinXP embedded.  Most thin clients are equipped with dual monitors and use the /span parameter of mstsc.exe to span the Remote Desktop Connection across both monitors.  The problem is when a message box pops.  The message box, for Windows or any other app., is located in the center of both screens making it a bit difficult to view/read.  The user usually ends up dragging the message box to one side or other to read.

The network is your standard Win2008 SBS and the TS box is Win2003.

Is there  GPO or reg entry to change the default message box location?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Al

i guess this would be more of a windows appearance settings.
Windows does not let you customize the  location of the 'message box' .. you can only change the Font and color..
