Ok I don't know where this should go but I am using Windows 7 so lets throw it here.

I use applications that involve multiple windows, specifically I thought of this while using MathCAD. A common example I can think of for a program like this is GIMP where all your toolbars are separate windows. I also use 2 monitors to work on. So is there a way in general that when I move a main program windows from one monitor to another all the other windows controlled by that program (guess I will call them slave windows) will come with it and maintain their position relative to the main program window?

Alternately is there a way to select multiple windows at one time so when I move them they all move uniformly relative to one another. I just really hate having to move 6 windows sometimes when I want to swap monitors with one program. Yes I am aware I could dock the toolbars but if I wanted to do that then I wouldn't be posting the question.
