    I use two monitors when I GM and got slightly annoyed resizing FG everytime I start it up.
    I finally found a small program that gives me a shortcut to resize FG instantly to a custom resolution.

    Works perfectly and just cuts out the mild annoyance that this function isn't built into Win10

    FG remembers what size it was when it closes and reopens in that size. If you stretch across two monitors you need to set up Windows so that both monitors display the same thing (Choose 'Extend these displays' from the Settings>System>Display>Multiple Displays) otherwise FG will revert to the main monitor only.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    I have it set up the way you describe it, doesn't work for me for some reason.
    Always starts up as a smallish window in the middle of my main screen
    It has worked for me in Win7 like this before, but for some reason no longer does in Win10

    Ah, the vicissitudes of operating systems

    I'm still baffled that this feature got removed... Well, using a program/hotkey is a good enough workaround; and FG instantly jumping to the correct size via keypress makes unreasonably happy

    It didn't get removed, it's still there - saving the desktop size across multiple monitors works fine for me in Windows 10 with FG v3.3.7. It maybe that FantasyGrounds.exe is unable to store the position data - try running FG as Administrator (right-click on the startup link and select "Run as Administrator" and see if this results in the position information being stored.

    Thanks for the troubleshooting help, SFC; and the other things in that thread, brings up nothing, and admin doesn't change the behaviour either.

That might allow for easier shared viewing by the group of their Character sheets and Maps.
    How do I open a players' copy on the same computer? Mine just keeps going to my DM one.
