WinMove

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

WinMove("Chat", "", 797, 0, 482, 361, 2)

The problem is that you can see it move the window for a split second, then the window teleports right back.

Is there any way to beat this or is it doing that for the sole reason what I'm doing? All I want is my windows in the top right of the screen :).

Can you move it with click on title-bar? then try a script like this: It move the Active Window to right top corener of screen when you press Shift-F

HotKeySet("F","_TEST")
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func _TEST()
    Local $LeftMargin = 200, $TopMargin=1
    $pos = WinGetPos("")
    MouseMove($pos[0]+$LeftMargin,$pos[1]+$TopMargin)
    MouseDown("primary")
    MouseMove(@DesktopWidth+$LeftMargin-$pos[2],0-$TopMargin)
    MouseUp("primary")
EndFunc

You might be able to get the windoiw where you want it by setting the working area of your screen, but it depends what else you want to have displayed.

You would probably need to set the working area before you ran the application whose window you want to postion.

Here is an example

Const $SPI_SETWORKAREA = 47,$SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Const $SPIF_SENDCHANGE = 11


$newWid = @DesktopWidth;- 500
$newHt = @DesktopHeight

$DtopRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
;WinMove("Chat", "", 797, 0, 482, 361, 2)
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,797,1);left
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,0,2);top
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,1280,3);right
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,361,4);bottom
$PRect = DllStructGetPtr($DtopRect)

$DNowRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
$PNowRect = DllStructGetPtr($DNowRect)
$StartRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
$PStartRect = DllStructGetPtr($StartRect)

$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_GETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PStartRect,"int",0)
MsgBox(0,'work area starts at',DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,2) & _
             ' x ' & DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,4))

$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_SETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PRect,"int",$SPIF_SENDCHANGE)

$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_GETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PNowRect,"int",0)
MsgBox(0,'work area is now',DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,2) & _
             ' x ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,4) & @cr & _
             "better have a look" & @CR & "Eg run notepad and maximize it." & _
                        "(After you have played with it click OK.)")

;set things back to how they started
$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_SETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PStartRect,"int",$SPIF_SENDCHANGE)
$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_GETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PNowRect,"int",0)

MsgBox(0,'work area is back to',DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,2) & _
             ' x ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,4))

With the size of the window that wont work, and the whole idea is to do everything automatic, mousemove isn't automatic IMO, technically it is but to me it is not.
