I have a 3 monitor configuration, my laptop screen and two 24" Samsung monitors.
Every morning, on the laptop screen I open two chrome windows showing jenkins, Resource Monitor and a cmd window and arrange them a certain way.
Is there any window manager type application that will do that automatically for me on startup?
My other monitors will then have a mix of intellij, insomnia, outlook, gitbash, etc...

Is there anything like this?

  • Probably you could consider to put your laptop to a sleep/hybernate instead of switching off. This will save state of literally everything not only window positions. – montonero Jan 28 '19 at 13:32
  • Yeah, I've been doing that, but I find it sometimes causes errors in intellij and some other apps. Maybe I'll try shut everything down except those on my laptop monitor. – bot_bot Jan 28 '19 at 14:20
  • I'm not a Win 10 user, but surely there's a provision to autostart programs, like in msconfig. – fixer1234 Jun 25 '19 at 2:08
  • Yes, you can tell windows 10 to autostart programs, but I would like it to detect I have a laptop screen and two external monitors, then arrange the application windows a certain way. – bot_bot Jun 25 '19 at 5:21

You could have a look at ws display settings, works wonders here. Handles monitor configuration and window layout and some extra mouse/keyboard shortcuts for instant moving and resizing of program windows. https://wizardsoft.nl/products/wsdisplaysettings
