Question on new multi-monitor functionality

I just upgraded to The PortableApps.com Platform v29.3 .

My work setup is a laptop and two 1920x1080 monitors. When I take the laptop home, I use it with only its own built-in monitor. My question is, if I run the launcher at work and move it to one of my external monitors #2 or #2, then exit, shutdown, take my laptop home, and run the launcher again, will it appear on the laptop monitor #1, or will it be on the non-existent monitor #2 and thus not accessible?

I've run into this issue before on other software that remembers the monitor it was last run on, but does not handle the case of that remembered monitor not existing the next time the software is run.

Thank you for your time and all your do.

Moves to Existing

If the last monitor it was on no longer exists, it will move to primary. It also runs a command to force it on to a visible monitor just before it appears for the first time if somehow the monitor calculations are off. The only time you'd run into an issue is if a monitor is plugged in and shown within the Windows displays but turned off. We can't account for that, though, as Windows doesn't know it is off.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
