Main Display Issue with Metro Apps


#1
Greetings!

I'm having a little issue with my Screen Setup and I was wondering if there's a fix to that.

But lets explain how it all started:
I recently upgraded from to Photoshop CC after seeing a YouTube Video with someone working on the same Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch I have using the newly introduced Experimental Touch features of PS CC.

Turns out it didn't worked THAT well on mine.

Panning, Zooming and Rotation in PS CC is totally screwed like the axis of them being totally off or outside my Screen and thus causing my Workspace to vanish off screen which is REALLY annoying.

Working with the Issue for a while I noticed that the issue could be related to me using multiple Monitors unlike the Video which only used one and the Cintiq with the Touch Interface NOT being either the center or rather the Main Monitor of the Setup.

Bäm! - Having the Cintiq not as the Main Monitor causes Photoshop CC to relocate the Rotational, Zoom and Move Axis to the Main Monitor and thus cause this agonizing behavior.

Problem is... With the Cintiq now set as the Main Monitor every Metro App I use ( including the Start Screen ) opens out of my normal Field of View.

Question:
Taking the picture below as an example - Is there a setting that allows me to keep the Cintiq ( 2 ) to be the Main Monitor because of Photoshop while having Metro Apps open by default on the Center Monitor ( 1 ) ?


I do know that hitting the Windows button in the Task bar will open the Start Screen on the screen it was hit and all Metro Apps opened from there will also open on the now active screen but working like this is kind of cumbersome as I prefer to use a Mouse button ( or the Keyboard Windows Key ) with the Windows Key assigned and there it just doesn't work like I want.

Thanks in Advance!

I run three displays on my desktop PC. Metro Apps launch on the screen you click the tile on. If you launch them from the Start Screen, they open on the monitor you opened the Start Screen on. If you opened them from a ICON pinned to your taskbar, they open on the monitor you clicked the short cut on. For most people they will open on the monitor that is set as your main screen. If you set your taskbar to show on all monitors and set it to display the program Icons on all displays you can open it on what ever monitor you want by clicking the icon for that app on the monitor you want it to open on.

I already tried the All Taskbar Thing but I'm not really happy with this solution as I'm rather unwilling to fill my Taskbar with like two dozen of the most frequently used Links just for the sake of having them open on the right Screen.

If someone knows of a Setting or maybe a third Party application that allowes to Change this behaviour I'd be thankfull.

After all I'm not expecting a quick fix for this from either Adobe, Microsoft or Wacom... Who ever is responsible for this Kind of behavior.

OK, I missed that last line of your post under the screen shot. Pressing the Windows LOGO key + shift + an arrow key will move the open App from screen to screen. Other than that I don't know what to tell you. It would be nice if Apps remembered what screen they were last used on and launched from there when opened again. Like desktop programs do.
