Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Apps/Programs only open on Primary monitor
Jorden   2016-08-22 13:29
I have created numerous shortcuts to open applications and programs on different monitors however recently they only open in the primary monitor. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I have verified that in the shortcut settings under the "Window" tab I have chosen to "use custom settings" and Show: "maximized" on "Monitor 1".

Monitor 1 is not the primary monitor?

Also let me know with which applications you have the issue, and what version of UltraMon and Windows you're using.

I am kind of having the same issue. If I open excel on my right monitor (using 3 monitors) it will appear on the taskbar correctly however if I open another excel file, both move to the center (primary) monitor taskbar. The workbooks themselves remain open on the right monitor.

Peter, which version of Windows and Excel are you using?

Seems to be the same issue as with Excel 2007, you could ask Microsoft to look into this, but I doubt that they'll fix this as Excel 2016 doesn't have this issue.

UltraMon's Smart Taskbar handled this correctly, but on Windows 8 and later the built-in multi-monitor taskbar gets used, UltraMon no longer adds its own taskbars.

That's one of the reasons why I bought the software was to keep open office files on their appropriate taskbars. :(
