I find this beyond frustrating.

I have two extra screens on my laptop while at work. I take my laptop and go home, with no extra screens connected. I come back, dock the laptop, and the windows need to be rearranged again.

Is there a way to get windows (or a utility) to keep track of the overall screen configuration (#, size, resolution), and remember where windows were placed, so when the screen configuration again matches, it puts applications BACK where they were?

I run into the same issue but my complaint is when I open the laptop later and the application window is still off-screen (end up using the arrow keys to move it back onscreen). I don't think there is a built-in solution to this. –  Brad Patton May 10 '13 at 0:38

I've used utility before in a similar scenario:


Worked for me :)

That arranges icons. Not windows. My issue is that I have 8 programs open across three screens. When I close the laptop, and re-open it with the three screens all my application windows are open on one screen, not arranged how I had them. –  CaffGeek May 10 '13 at 13:17
