I am trying out the IDEA 7.0.1 release. I have a multi monitor setup at work. I had IDEA full screen on the secondary monitor (LCD) while my primary is my laptop. I shut down my laptop and started it at home albeit without the LCD. Now I see IDEA started as a program but now I am not able to view it. The dual- monitor support is off.
When IDEA starts all the startup dialogs are displayed on the laptop screen, then i see an icon in the task bar but i am not able to reach it. I tried "Move" but doesnt work. I rebooted the laptop but same. I tried reinstalling BUT it still seems to be displaying on the non-existent 2nd screen. I have an older version 6.0 and even that is working the same way.
I tried registry cleanup too but zilch. I have seen this happen with another file manager program called FreeManager. I had to let it go and uninstalled it.
The only option is that when I go back to work, I need to relocate IDEA to the laptop screen before shutting down but this is hacky!
I have a Dell Latitude D630. Any info you need from my side for diagnosing? Now I am using Eclipse in the meanwhile... :(
