so i have removed one of my monitors for the time being and now the windows are still stuck over on the monitor that isnt there.. i can see the window tabs in my task bar on my main monitor, but i just cant get the NT windows that were on the monitor that was removed over to one of my other monitors.. do you guys have any ideas on how to go about this other than closing all the windows themselves and starting new ones..?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

You can either

-> deactivate the second monitor via your Windows controls
-> or create a new workspace via NinjaTrader, which only uses the remaining monitors

ok i figured it out:

do alt tab select that window
press alt + space
press m
move keyboard arrows to move window to another monitor

Yup and I think also right-click taskbar and Cascade windows will do it as well, but it will screw up all the positions of the other windows.

BTW, I think NT stores the absolute window positions in the XML file for the workspace, another last case resort would be to edit that.
