Rainmeter moves skins when second monitor is disconnected

Post by Grecklock »

Hi,

I recently added a second monitor to my setup and have been facing issues when turning it off. I sometimes prefer to have the second monitor disconnected, and I use the Winkey+P method to do so. When I turn off the second monitor, all the skins move back to my primary monitor. I have set all the skins to the correct monitor, and have tried setting the "stay on screen" box both on and off, and I still encounter the problem. In ranimeter.ini all of my skins are set the the correct display.

Is there anyway to just have the skins unload or disappear when the monitor is turned off?

Thanks!

Untick Keep on screen on the skin, though it's made like that for a reason, don't question why your pc might lag when there's a visualizer on a monitor you can't see (assuming people don't know about the active skins list)
You can also change the display monitor position of the skin so it stays on that monitor even when you disconnect

Not working for as in?

Skins go off-screen even if KeepOnScreen is on?
