    I tried this program out because I am constantly annoyed when Microsoft Word opens a window on the wrong desktop. Initially it did not work for me, but Simon was very responsive to my questions in his discussion forum. He provided me with a fix so that the program now does exactly what I want! I will mention that I had no trouble installing it. It is necessary to install it outside of C:\Program Files (because it writes the settings to the installation directory). That is a little unusual, but I think it is worth the trouble because of the usefulness of this program.

    I can't even install this. I get errors saying that cannot assign left arrow, cannot assign right arrow, etc. I did as the programmer stated, unblocked the zip file before doing anything with it, but it still gives the same errors. I repeatedly tried about 5 or 5 times and each time i deleted and re-downloaded the file. If you know there is a problem, why are you zipping the file in such a way. Anyway, at this point I'll pass and just use what windows 10 have in place.
