    Open windows on specific monitor for windows 8 & eyefinity

    Using eyefinity (3 monitors), I have certain desktop icons on different screens. What I want to happen is have the icon I click that is on the right monitor open on the right monitor, left icon on the left, and middle on the middle. Instead it open opens where it was closed last.

    Can I change this with a windows 8.1 setting or could this be AMD based?

    Hello Han, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Unless there's some sort of 3rd party program that may allow it, they have always opened to where they were last closed.

    About, all you can do is open and close them to how you like so that they will open that way next time.
