Hi,

Is there a way of making sp4/win10 remember which apps were on which screen when connecting to one or more external displays. Currently if I am connected to an external display and the sp4 goes to sleep or screen turns off for some reason, all the apps appear back on the sp4 and I have to re-arrange them again on my external monitors.

Is there a way around this? Known issue?

I think it is a known issue with Win10, not really a Surface only issue. It has to do with the High DPI screen though, and the games they are playing to make multiple DPI settings work.

ahhh OK, yeah I am connecting the SP4 to 2 4k monitors, so that would explain it. Shame though, I use a macbook pro at work and this particular functionality works great on it.

I use two non 4k monitors and apps remember fine as long as I don't disconnect from the dock. If I take the tablet away and use things then redock I have to move things back to the monitor I want.
