Binary Fortress Software: Apps to Make Life Easier!

Automatically Saving and Restoring Window Positions on Dock/Undock

April 11, 2016

Undocking and re-docking a laptop to external monitors can be frustrating at times, due to the fact that when you undock, Windows moves all open applications to the laptop monitor. When re-docking, the applications don't automatically move back to the external monitor(s). With the latest DisplayFusion 8.0 Beta, you can solve this issue by automatically saving and restoring the window positions using DisplayFusion's new "Triggers" feature. The steps below explain how to configure the Trigger rules in order to achieve this. The two Trigger rules below will make DisplayFusion save the window positions every 2 minutes when docked, and restore the window positions when re-docking.

  1. If you haven't already, make sure to update to the latest DisplayFusion 8.0 Beta.
  2. First, save your docked layout as a new Monitor Profile.
  3. On the Settings > Triggers tab, click "Add."
  4. From the "Trigger Event" drop-down, choose "Timer Interval."
  5. Set the "Interval" to 120 seconds.
  6. Enable the "Monitor Profile" checkbox, and choose the Monitor Profile that you created in Step 1.
  7. Below the Actions Pane, click "Add," then "Run Function." Choose the "Save Window Positions" function from the list, then click OK.
  8. Click OK to save the Trigger rule.

  9. Click "Add" again to open up another new Trigger rule.
  10. From the "Trigger Event" drop-down, choose "Monitor Profile Changed."
  11. Enable the "Monitor Profile" checkbox, and choose the Monitor Profile that you created in Step 1.
  12. Below the Actions pane, click "Add," then "Wait." Enter 5000 in the Wait Time dialog, then click OK.
  13. Below the Actions pane, click "Add," then "Run Function." Choose the "Restore Window Positions from Last Save" function from the list, then click OK.
  14. Click OK to save the Trigger rule.

To test this setup, dock your laptop and open some windows on the external monitor(s). Wait more than 2 minutes so that the "Save Window Positions" Trigger has a chance to run, then undock, and re-dock. About 5 seconds after re-docking, DisplayFusion should automatically restore the window positions.
