I am using the attached USB to VGA convertor for connecting two monitors to a single desktop machine. The problem here being faced is at times my applications such as outlook and excel opens in the extended window. Then it has to be dragged to the main window manually.  

Can anyone advise of some settings that cna be used to ensure no applications opens in the extended window until it really is dragged to the next window.

Normally programs will open on the last monitor they were closed on.  So, if you open an application and it is on the wrong monitor if you drag it to the other monitor, make it full screen and do a File \ Exit.  The next time you open it, it should open on the same monitor.


It may also be an issue with the USB to VGA.  Not that it isn't working properly, but how it is working affects where programs open.


On my home machine I'm running three monitors off of the same video card and software opens on the monitor where it was last closed.
