Locking Application Dialog Boxes to Same Screen
I have a three-monitor setup with nvidia cards. All is well technically, but I have one extremely frustrating problem.
When I have an application open on one screen, say screen #3, and I do anything that might require a dialog box to open (ie. open a file, scan a document, etc) the dialog boxes pop up on the primary screen (#1). This causes me to have to move the mouse across three monitors to click whatever the dialog box is asking and then move all the way back to the monitor where the application is running. Not the most efficient means of working.
What I am looking for is a windows setting, or add-on software, that will allow me to lock applications, and their child windows, dialog boxes, etc. to a single screen so that dialog boxes for the application running on screen #3 will pop-up on screen #3.
nVidia used to provide a utility called nView for XP that would do this, but they do not support nView under Windows 7.
I have tried Ultramon and it does not have this capability. I've looked at Actual Multiple Monitors and Actual Window Manager but they don't appear to do this either.
Do any of you know of a solution for this problem? With so many people using multiple monitors out there, I can't be the only one facing this issue!
Thanks to you all in advance,
