    Isn't that something for the user to decide, if that is what they want?

    Besides, most(?) applications seem to remember the last state they were in, so if it was exited when it was on the second monitor, then that is where it will start the next time around.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    You have to use the virtual screen coordinates.
