Telling PAD what monitor to use

I have a flow where I look for an image in a subregion of the screen after launching Chrome.  I'm having an issue when PAD launches Chrome on a different monitor.  Does anyone know how to tell PAD to only open on a certain monitor?

Hi @Etignor1,

 

As far as I am aware currently there is no specific setting/action for multiple screens.

 

However, the Focus window action might be useful as a workaround:

Btw, I also saw this Power Automate idea:

Hi @Etignor1 

 

You will get more help on Desktop Flows related questions here.

 

I tried looking for an existing answer on your question there, but couldn't find anything related to monitors or screens.

Maybe you can try posting and someone might have some information.

Thanks, I didn't realize I had posted it here instead of the PAD community.
