#3906 closed Feature request (fixed)

On client startup, parts of program window are beyond edge of desktop

FileZilla client version
On a multiple monitor setup where the main and secondary monitors are not the same size, the FileZilla program window defaults to the following position:

  • Horizontally centred in the primary monitor
  • Vertically centred in the overall desktop

This causes the title bar, menus and button bar to be off the top edge of the desktop on the primary monitor, and beyond reach of the mouse.
FileZilla can be made to function normally by maximizing its window via the Windows taskbar, but since its title bar is off the desktop, the window cannot be moved and cannot be used at less than full-screen.
Is it possible to change the default program window position to fit vertically within the primary monitor, instead of the overall maximum vertical dimension of the desktop?

I consider this feature request to be fixed.

FileZilla stores the dimension and position of the window across sessions. So after the first launch, simply move/resize the window to the desired position/dimension and FileZilla will remember this.

Furthermore, last time I checked on Windows, you can move and resize the window using a function from the task manager, like right clicking the program and then choosing "move" (or something like that).
