I'm a Web Developer, working on both the front and back end.
Most of my work is with the LAMP stack.

Love the old "Thin Man" movies.

I try to answer questions in a way that will be useful to anyone who comes across them. That means that I sometimes include basic concepts or fixes.

So, if I include basic things in an answer to your question, it does not reflect my opinion of you nor is it an attempt to belittle you.

Be Well

@BalaSivakumar I saw the question when I searched and didn't look at it because it said "Google Chrome not playing mp4 files", I was able to play the files. The symptoms are different. More importantly, that's a low quality answer with the wrong flag name. Also there's no explanation about how to change the setting. Most people would have no idea what the "chrome flags" are and would have to search to find out what that means and how to actually fix the problem. If you'd rather not, then I'll create an answer so that there's a clear, full explanation of the solution.

@BalaSivakumar Thanks, the symptoms in the Superuser question you linked to were different, but I tried enabling the "Disable hardware-accelerated video decode" chrome flag and it fixed the problem. If you create an answer explaining how to access the chrome flags and enable that flag, I'll be happy to accept it.

@DarthAndroid Excellent! You tipped me off to the problem. I have another computer attached to the HDMI input of the second monitor which must have confused Win 7. When I removed the cable for the other computer from the second monitor, it left my application windows in place when I turned the monitor off. Please answer the question so I can accept your answer.

Actually the title says exactly what I want, did you bother to read the question? I don't want the application windows moved to the main monitor when I turn off the second monitor. The way the title had been rewritten said the problem was that the application windows weren't being moved to the main monitor, which is exactly what happens and is not what I want to have happen.

Someone changed the title to say the opposite of my question, so I clarified.
