#11776 new Bug report

Incorrect placing of the fileZilla client window after the second monitor turning off

Reported by: ibarski Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: restart window placing Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: win10 x86 1809 Build 17763.55


FileZilla client starts with invisible window on the desctop.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install the FileZilla client on the Windows 10 x64 using double monitors with the second monitor used as an desktop extention.
  2. Start the FileZilla client and move/resize its window to be placed on the second monitor completely.
  3. Exit the FileZilla client
  4. Turn off the second monitor
  5. Restart Windows 10
  6. Start the FileZilla client again - it will be invisible. Workaround:
    1. set focus on the invisible FileZilla client window
    2. enter <ALT>+<space> for the window context menue
    3. select "move" and use arrow key to move the window back to the visible desktop part.

I guess the FileZilla client stores the last window placing and use this information in none-start manner to retore the window on the same place.
The Microsoft programs like IE do not have such behavior: if the extended desktop is available the IE will restart on the old place. If not - on the visible area.

Addiion: "turn off the second monitor" means disconnect it from the computer.
