    I use two monitors (the laptop monitor + a VGA monitor). I connected a 3rd monitor (HDMI) for a while, then disconnected it as I didn't really use it. Since I disconnected it, one of the programs I use always opens on the laptop (main) rather than #2 screen where it is when I shut down. All the other programs I have tried seem to remember where they were when shut down - whether it is monitor 1 or 2, and size etc.

    Even the subsidiary windows of the program in question open in their correct locations, it is just the main part of the program that insists on coming up on the main monitor.

    Some detail - Win 10, program in question is an amateur radio one called fldigi. I tried reconnecting the 3rd monitor, but the problem is still there, so that may have just been a coincidence.

    Any ideas of how to make the program open on #2 monitor in the location it was when last used?

    Thanks

    That's normal, I use dual monitors (or tv) since Xp and I remember that since there.
    After a reboot, a shut down or a screensaver switch off, programs always go back on primary. Then you must move then to right position.
    There's no setting / app for that

    He talked about a subwindow of the main app, that's like windows media player e.g.
    All the rest works as I wrote. I used dual monitor for years
