Thanks for answering Anselm!

Nope, both screens have different resolutions (1680x1020 +
1920x1080)... And (with regards to your comment at the end of your
email) I know where to find a bigger screen, but my boss doesn't :)
Additionally, having two screens actually works well to sort windows -
screen in front of me gets the actual important stuff, whereas the one
on the left gets all "rubbish" windows - necessary for the program,
but less important. (and the 3rd screen on the right serves ms windows
:D )

Aha, I see where this code is going! Thanks a lot, I'll try it next
week at work.
