 Moving windows on secondary monitor to primary when RDCing

Some of you may have encountered this Windows gotcha.

When you remote desktop to your PC, you'll see the primary monitor. The problem arises when you have windows showing on the other screen that aren't visible to you, or you open up a program that was last used on the secondary monitor – by default it'll reopen on there.

A quick solution is to right click on the task bar and select maximize. But if you need to work with multiple windows:

  1. Right click on the app and select Move

  2. Press any arrow key
  3. The window will now follow your mouse, allowing you to move it back onto the primary monitor.
