Remember the last screen location the Platform was open at

When I open portable apps, it starts at the top right corner of the monitor.
I then move it down to the bottom right location of the monitor.
Upon shutting down and restart, portable apps returns to the top right corner of the monitor.
This is a recent issue and did not exist prior to February 2024.
This appears to have started with portableApps 29.3
PortableApps 29.5
Windows 8.1 64bit
Single monitor

Fully Closing?

Are you closing the PA.c Platform when you're done using it to save the setting before shutting down Windows? It's working for me here with a single screen.

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

I have the same problem. I usually have PA-menu in bottom left corner. After closing and re-opening menu, it always goes the middle of the left screen border. I have dual screen, with PA-menu on main screen (1920x1080). Second monitor is 1280x1024. What can I do?

Working Here

I setup the same scenario and it worked here without issue. Where are you positioning the menu before you close it? After closing it, open up the PortableAppsMenu.ini file within X:\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data and check what the entries are for StartPositionHorizontal, StartPositionVertical, and LastMonitor-COMPUTERNAME.
