WinMove Non Visible Windows

Recommended Posts


Hi, recently i had 2 monitors on this pc, and i had to remove one at one point, but then i noticed that some applications would start in the "ghost/second/removed" monitor, so i cannot interact with them, so i thought about doing a simple app, that on a double click would drag the specified window to coordinates x0 y0.

the problem is that it only works on windows on the monitor 1, applications on 2 just don't come to 1.

Hoping for some hints to solve this.

Opt("WinSearchChildren", 0)

$GUI = GUICreate('BringBack', 605, 335)

#Region ;ListView
$cListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("#|Title|Handle", 8, 10, 585, 250, $LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES + $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT)
GUICtrlSetFont($cListView, 9, 600, 0, '', 5)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 40)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 370)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 2, 160)
#EndRegion ;ListView
WinSetOnTop($GUI, '', 1)

    Local $aList = WinList()
    For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
        If $aList[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($aList[$i][1]), 2) Then
            GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($i & '|' & $aList[$i][0] & '|' & $aList[$i][1], $cListView)
EndFunc   ;==>WList

                $GetLTLV = _GUICtrlListView_GetNextItem($cListView, -1, 0, 8)
                If $GetLTLV <> -1 Then
                    $GetItemTxtT = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($cListView, $GetLTLV, 1)
                    ConsoleWrite('Title - ' & $GetItemTxtT & @CRLF)
                    WinMove($GetItemTxtT, '', 0, 0)
                    WinSetOnTop($GetItemTxtT, '', 1)
