Windows 7: System Tray pop-up appears on my secondary monitor

11 Feb 2017   #1

Windows 7 64 bit (6.1 Build 7601)
System Tray pop-up appears on my secondary monitor

I have Win 7 64 bit, which I run with two monitors. What with a series of small but annoying problems, several days ago I restored my computer to the factory settings, and am now in the process of reinstalling my 3rd party programs. So everything should be fairly healthy at this point, at it seems that that's so, with one exception. I use MailWasher Pro for the purpose of screening spam. I have it set to minimize to the system tray, instead of the task bar. When I right click on the MW icon in the tray, for the purpose of exiting the program, the little pop-up appears on my secondary monitor. Every other program in the tray works properly: the pop-up appears on my primary monitor, immediately under the cursor. Any idea what could be causing it to act differently for a single program, and what the fix is? Thanks.
