Controling which Monitor a window will open on?

Is there a way to control which duel monitor will open windows applications on? When I had XP I found a way in some settings that made a monitor the main monitor for opening windows and apps.

Windows 7 opens windows where ever it likes. Its almost guess work which monitor will open what and its seems to be random as.

I have a GTX7900 Nvidia Card if that helps running duel Samsung SynMasters 245T.

Hello Dexter,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

They should open on the monitor that is selected as primary in the Nvidia control panel unless they were moved to the second monitor and closed while there. At least that's how it works here. Rt. click desktop to get to the control panel. If this isn't working, maybe try reinstalling the driver.
