I use a laptop at work with a separate monitor. I often unplug and go into the conference room to project my screen, then re-plug in to my monitor when done. Then, if I work from home, I’m working on the laptop alone.
Every time I unplug from a display or a projector, I have to reconfigure my windows to where I had them. It’s time consuming and kind of silly.
That’s why I can’t believe it took me so long to download the trial of Cordless Dog’s Mac application, Stay. It’s genius. You set up your windows the way you like, then hit Save, and it automatically puts them back if you switch displays. I don’t know how it does it, it just works.
Totally worth the $15, but they have a 30-day trial just to make sure.
