I keep opening a program and it opens on the left of my monitor even tho I don't have the dual monitors plugged in anymore. Is there any way I can fix it without plugging my monitor in again and going through all that trouble of getting it out of another room?
Dual Monitor troubles...
There is only one and its my main monitor
So you have only one monitor connected, and only that monitor appears in the Screen Resolution window, and that monitor is set to primary, and YET the program you open appears open in the taskbar below but the window itself is presumably on the other monitor (which means you can't see it)?
If a program that you open ever shows on your taskbar but the window is not on your viewable monitor, there's a handy keyboard shortcut that's worth remembering...
Highlight the Program in the Taskbar and press - WindowsKey + Shift + Left or Right Arrow
Easy way to remember it is that you want to SHIFT the WINDOW to your main monitor.
Hope that helps.
