ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI\MSI GamingApp\MSIGamingApp.exe")
WinActivate("MSI Gaming App")
Send("{LWINUP}{SHIFTUP}", 1)

Sorry if this has been asked already, I did search a bit, and didn't find anything helpful.  Basically I wanted to open an application, then send it to my secondary monitor with the WindowsKey + Shift + Left arrow, but it just doesn't work, I hope maybe I am just missing something easy.  I haven't used AutoIT it a while, but I thought it would be perfect for this type of task.  Thanks for any help.

How about Send("#+{LEFT}")?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

ShellExecute("C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\MSI\MSI GamingApp\MSI GamingApp")
WinWaitActive("MSI Gaming App")

Well, I don't know why, but if I compile the script with this code, and then run the .exe as an admin, it works.  No flipping idea why, but it works.  lol, thanks for the help.
