Q. I have multiple monitors connected via DisplayPort and after screens turn off with power save my windows are all re-arranged. What can I do?
A. I recently deployed a new setup with a new graphics card and multiple 4K displays. After the monitors went into power save on resume all the windows I had open were rearranged and appeared in random places. After trying many different solutions and a lot of investigation the solution that worked for me was the following:
- Open the registry editor
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\Configuration
- Delete all of the sub keys
- Reboot the machine
After the reboot if you rearranged the monitor positions or changed the main display you will have to redo that configuration. Also anytime there is a major graphics driver update you will have to re-perform these steps. While not ideal this is the only solution I have found that actually works.
