Default Startup Monitor or Location

Post by Dlashley »

Hello - I have an odd question
I have and extra monitor attached to my laptop.
After the last upgrade of powershell studio to this version, when I launch the program it opens by default on my secondary monitor.
Is there a way I can get the product to reset to again launch by default on my laptop monitor?

I have tried the basic things like moving it to my laptop -- Full screen and close - exit..
I have tried unplug the HDMI to second monitor, Tried SNAP to Laptop monitor.. etc..

Product, version and build: Powershell Studio 2017
64 bit version of product: 64
Operating system: WIN10
64 bit OS:64
PowerShell Version: 5.4.139

The application keeps track of the last location, but the OS determines the monitor it appears in, which is typically the primary display.

Thanks David.. I did find it..
I deleted a key in the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SAPIEN Technologies, Inc.\PowerShell Studio 2017\WindowState\Location which seemed to be stuck in my registry..
Allowing the app to recreate it.. worked..
Must have been a security issue with the key creation in my registry..
