In a multiple monitor situation, how do I get popup windows to open on the same monitor as the parent application is displayed.


I have two monitors. I have an application that I run all day, displayed on my secondary monitor. Whenever a popup windows is launched form that application, it always opens on the primary monitor. Very annoying. Any way to get the popup to launch in on the same monitor as the parent application?
