Is the Premiere Elements window maximized? If so, make it a floating window and it should open in the same spot on your desktop every time. (Otherwise it will open in your #1 monitor.)
At least that's how it works in XP. I don't know about Vista.
thanks for helping.
I just added a few photos to show what happens.
1. DSCF3703.JPG the Premiere Elements 7 window opens maximized on my right-hand screen (pivot)
2. DSCF3704.JPG I minimize it and pull it over on the left-hand screen
3. DSCF3705.JPG when trying to maximize it on the landscape left-hand-screen, it stays in the pivot-aspect-ratio
Do you see the problem? :-)
My guess is that the program is using the #1 screen as reference for defining itself as maximized. (In the same way, the Windows background you're using is likely either landscape on both monitors or portrait.)
If you keep it a floating window and don't maximize it, you should be able to place and size it as you'd like.
Already tried to fix the size by myself by not maximizing it and then pulling it into the size I want.
No chance - it stays in pivot-aspect-ratio.
This is what I also tried:
I also tried to switch screens in Windows so that screen 1 was screen 2 and the other way round.
So I thought it would take the landscape screen as reference.
No chance - doesn't work
I tried to switch the screens positions so that the left screen appeared right in Windows and the other way round.
No change - it keeps opening on the pivot-screen.
I also switched off the pivot-screen and it started on the landscape screen because it was the only screen available.
BUT when I switch on the pivot screen it resizes and jumps over to the pivot-screen.
