Welcome to IWETHEY!

New IME OS X doesn't get it fully right, either.
Although the placement on the screen is kept (usually), it consistently forgets which monitor apps were on and bungs them all over the place. I've learnt to plug in one certain monitor first because it usually gets things right when I do that one first.

From watching the colleagues that use Windows, they tend to run things in full screen which seems to minimise the monitor pain.

New Now try that with a remote desktop
The RDP client has a special "full screen" mode where it hides the window frame. It is often used on the secondary display as it overlays the local task bar. Unplug that screen and mayhem ensues as the client will keep passing the original size to the server (a massive PITA on peon laptops as most are just 1366x768.) No only that, but the RDP client will refuse to go full screen again until you
- find the remote desktop launcher
- drag it to the correct display
- go to the options and set the display slider to full screen
- manage a successful connection to the RDP server
New Ugh.
And I thought the screen-sharing shenanigans that things like BlueJeans and Slack do was grotty.

     I has a sad ... anyone got tips for multi-monitor window placement? - (drook) - (11)
         Don't do that? - (Another Scott) - (6)
             I'm in and out of meetings all day - (drook) - (1)
                 keep display icon in your task bar, before you undock change it to duplicate displays? - (boxley)
             It is beyond the drivers - (scoenye) - (3)
                 I thought Windows was the "enterprise solution" - (drook) - (2)
                     That ship lost its anchors a while ago - (scoenye) - (1)
                         Yeah, I didn't even mention the hour I spent fighting with wifi configs -NT - (drook)
         IME OS X doesn't get it fully right, either. - (static) - (2)
             Now try that with a remote desktop - (scoenye) - (1)
                 Ugh. - (static)
         And now I'm pissed - (drook)

Note for the linguistically-impaired: That was a rhetorical question. (Second note, for the vocabulary-challenged: That means you're not supposed to answer it.)
