Windows 7: Program window opens split across two monitors

Program window opens split across two monitors

I open this programme (NCalc, used in Flight Simulation) in normal view mode and it insists on sitting half on one monitor, half on the other. I use WindowsManager (payware, though quite cheap) to manage all my other windows, which on my Flight Simulator PC are quite complex. But it's immune to this one.

Anyone know how I can get this programme to sit on one window rather split across two? I gather a few lines of code will set a window's position, but I can't find what's needed: maybe someone knows what would help here!

Thanks,

Martin

Can you drag the window to one monitor when this happens? If so, what happens if you close it on that one monitor, then open the program again? Or set the PC to use only monitor one, then open the program and close it. Re-enable the second monitor and see if it behaves.

Thanks for the ideas. Yes, I can drag the window to either monitor but when I closeit, it reopens spread across the two screens, as before. Same if I disable the 2nd monitor. Of course the programme opens in the centre of the main monitor now, but as soon as I switch back to 2 monitors, same problem. I tried setting the position in WindowManager whilst only one screen was active, but again, no luck when back to two screens!!

These things are always tough as this is not normal behavior. Although spit in the middle is a new one to me. If we don't come up with an answer, you can always use Display Fusion to do the job. A Guy

How do you manage the two monitors? Via NVIDIA control panel? It's likely the coding of the program is telling it to center itself, and it sees the 2 monitors as one long extended display. What effect does minimizing, or maximizing have? What about a full screen setting? A Guy

Windows Manager is supposed to do this too, but doesn't. I am in touch with their support to see if they can fix things.

Yes, I manage the monitors with nVidia CP, (WM apart). Minimizing the programme to the taskbar and bringing it back makes no difference. If I maximize the window, it opens on the left monitor. When I return to normal window, it's back straddling the two screens. I don't want to use the programme in full screen view as the information is only a tiny proportion of the full screen, up in the top-left corner.
