At church, I have a glorious three monitor setup which works GREAT for Logos. But, when I go home and use my laptop, The Logos window(s) are only slightly visible along the far left edge of the screen and I can't get them to drag back onto the usable screen. I can "guess" where to click to close logos by sliding my mouse off screen and clicking. So, since that works, I assume it is somehow working off-screen due to my 3 monitor setup at church.  But, this means that I have no real access to Logos on the laptop.

This past week I uninstalled Logos 8 completely and did a full reinstall. Alas, the issue persists. What am I doing wrong?

For reasons that go beyond this email, my screens are physically arranged in a different order than the ordinal numbers associated with them. 3 is to the left. 1 is in the center. And, 2 is on the right. This means I have LOGOS showing on screens 1&3 (the ones to my left) and part of 2.  Then, I do most other things (Wordprocessor, internet, etc.) on screen 2 to my right. I have attached a picture of what my office setup looks like in case I need to change that so the laptop will work.

Chris not sure if this will help but when I am moving from a multi-monitor configuration to a single laptop screen where I have forgotten that I closed a window on my secondary screen I have this issue. I usually resort to the following...

Maybe this will help you.

In Three Monitor Setup

Just a thought. Don't close Logos or Shutdown before you unplugged the monitors. First unplug them and wait for your primary screen to take control, it will go black and come back on. Check to see if all screens are visible on the primary monitor. After this, close Logos and shutdown.

ór, press Win+P and select "PC screen only" before closing logos and shutdown. Wait for the Primary monitor to take control and then do your shutdown process.

Greetings Chris

I have a two monitor set up on my desktop with floating panels on my second monitor.

When I move to my laptop if I go to the Layouts button and reopen the lay out I can find my floating panels behind the main panel.

It is then just a case of moving the extra panels into their own workspaces and I am good to go.
