    I suggest for GPU-Z to save its window position on exiting/starting again. Most similar programs have this - please add!

    For example, I want to move GPU-Z to my 2nd monitor, and have it keep that position after I close it and run it again.
    An example of a program that has this is Core Temp - I use Core Temp to track my CPU temps, and use GPU-Z to track my videocard temps.
    RealTemp has it too.

    (Sorry if this has been brought up before...
    Core Temp has a small bug with the window position when using 2 monitors, but its author will be fixing that too.)

    This will be included in next build.

    It will ensure the window will always start on-screen (e.g. when graphics card changed and resolution is lower)
    Naki and adulaamin say thanks.

    Great, thanks!
    How about if the user had 2 monitors, but removed one? I assume you will have that in mind too.

    EDIT: Please also make sure it works properly with 2/3/4+ monitors.
    Core Temp has a bug when there are two monitors, and the 2nd one is on the right (the maker will be fixing it in the next release).
    So, you may need to test/have in mind the following scenarios:
    1) Two monitors, 2ndary monitor on the right.
    2) Two monitors, 2ndary monitor on the left.
    3) Two monitors, 2ndary monitor below the main one.
    4) Two monitors, 2ndary monitor above the main one.

    I did some testing, and GPU-Z handles moving monitors around well!
    For example, if you have the 2nd monitor on the right, and put GPU-Z on the 2nd monitor, then close GPU-Z, change Windows to have the 2nd monitor on the left, then run GPU-Z again, it moves back to the main/first monitor.
    I assume this will also happen if you disconnect a monitor.

    EDIT: I tried 2nd monitor above and below the main one (instead of to the left or right) - that works fine too.
