Hi Team


I work between 4 different programs using twin screens, and RDP into my computer frequently from a laptop.  When RDPing in, of course programs on the second screen get kicked across to the primary screen, and don't automatically move back.


Has anybody successfully used a bit of software (and a hotkey combination or similar) to move windows around to a specific location?


I'm aware of and use the Windows 10 docking keyboard commands (WINKEY+arrows) already, but this is not quite enough for me.  I don't mind spending up to about US$50.


Thanks for any suggestions.

Try displayfusion pro.  You can use the pro version for 14 days for free on trial from memory.

DisplayFusion Pro is working beautifully, thank you.


I had expected to be able to position several individual windows with the software, but that does not look to be the case without stacked macros.


What is working nicely though, is the ability to 'save current window positions' and 'restore window positions to last save point'.  I can now rock up to my desk, login, see the windows are not where I want them, and with a keyboard shortcut the windows are restored within 2 seconds.


Thank you @askelon.  It turns out I have used DisplayFusion in the past for a client, but had forgotten about it.
