I’m using Studio 2019 on a multimonitor setup.
Recently, I noticed that when I open Studio (whether from double-clicking a project, or from a shortcut, or from the start menu) it opens on a secondary monitor, and not on the main monitor.
Is there a way I can ensure it always opens on the main monitor (or at least on the secondary monitor I want)?
It is 15.2.6
I’ve checked for updates and I’m downloading 15.2.6. Perhaps that’ll do it.
Could you please check your exact version of Studio? Help - About... And post it here.I remember some early versions of S2019 behaved that way on my double-monitor setup (with no extra software) on Windows…
Hello Lorenzo Martinelli ,
When you have all screens the screens active - open Studio.
Resize the Studio program (so that this is not minimized or mazimized).
Drag Studio to the screen you want it to open in and close the program (without changing or resizing).
Now when you reopen the program, it should be in the preferred screen.
Did this work for you?
Thanks for your comments.
No, regrettably it does not. That’s the first thing I tried because it generally works on other apps.
When I reopen Studio, it opens resized, but on the wrong monitor.
I use a piece of software to manage my screens, downloadable here:
You might find its functionality useful. I find the free version useful.
All the best,
I suppose that if my irritation at Studio opening on the side monitor continues, or if Studio does not revert to its previous good behaviour, I’ll download it and give it a try.
PS I was nosing at your profile on this site, and I suspect we actually live in the same "middle of nowhere" :-)
Hi Lorenzo Martinelli
I've only just set up a second screen and my stepson who put it all together for me uses several screens and recommended DisplayFusion. He uses the Pro version but the free version is fine for me. I have used it to remove the bottom toolbar from the second screen (which I have mounted in portrait to read A4 reference documents) so I control everything from the main landscape screen bottom toolbar.
My second screen is totally empty until I place something there...
When I want to send something to the second screen, I click an icon on the top toolbar...
highlighted in the above image in yellow.
Or I use a shortcut:
That shortcut moves the ACTIVE window to the other monitor (or the next in the sequence if you have more than 2) and using the shortcut again takes it back or to the next monitor.
There are lots of other features but I've only been using it a day and so haven't tried them out. This level of control already suits me fine. I was thinking you wouldn't need to worry about Studio opening on the second screen because you'd only have to click Ctrl+Win+X to bring it back.
The software also opens the program in the same screen as it was previously opened. Useful for me as I have PDFs and JPGs open on my portrait screen one above the other.
So far, Studio hasn't 'jumped' but because I'd already read of people having this problem, I decided to follow my stepson's advice and use a tool that would keep things under control
Hope this helps,
Could you please check your exact version of Studio? Help - About... And post it here.I remember some early versions of S2019 behaved that way on my double-monitor setup (with no extra software) on Windows 10. But this bug has been resolved with some latest CUs. Might be the one before last or even one before that.
Windows 10 seems to be able to do a lot of those things natively, but if DisplayFusion helps to keep Studio on the monitor where it belongs....
Maybe the update will be enough. I didn't need DisplayFusion because Studio was working fine in the correct space. I just wanted to get rid of the bottom toolbar on my 2nd screen.
Have good day,
The current build is 184.108.40.20631. This one opens on the same monitor, where it was previously closed. But there have been some versions, which did open on the secondary monitor. This was reported as a bug and has been resolved.
