That`s totally normal, if you just leave them where they are on the monitor you use most often, that`s the best you can do. There`s no reason to keep moving them, your open windows will cover them anyway. Here`a shot on a 40" 1080p monitor, If I move the gadgets here, then I would have to move them again on the 1440 x 900 monitor, now that`s a pain in the butt.
