I have a setup in use where I use up to four monitors. The problem is I generally switch around what I'm using and that messes up where all of my windows are.

I'm on Windows 8 and have two graphics cards. My setup is as follows:

  • Monitor 1: Card 1
  • Monitor 2: Card 1
  • Monitor 3: Card 2
  • TV 1: Card 2

I almost always have all the monitors turned on and in use. When I turn on the TV though, all of my windows get reconfigured and moved to different monitors. I don't know how to stop this.

Another configuration I use is where I have Monitors 1 and 2 plus TV in use, and I have my Xbox in use on Monitor 3. When I get done with the Xbox and switch Monitor 3 over to the PC, everything is reconfigured.

So is there a way to stop this from happening? I have the free version of Display Fusion in use but haven't seen settings to save monitor configurations.

UltraMon should be able to help. I'm not entirely sure how it will react to unplugging/plugging in monitors, but it ought to do the trick when it comes to reapplying your monitor configuration by saving and loading profiles.
