I have a MacBook Pro with two connected displays. I keep windows on all three displays, and I have found Stay - which I discovered thanks to this question - to work very well for remembering what windows go where on all three displays after I've disconnected and reconnected my monitors.
However, it's not quite what I need.
When I use my MBP with the monitors connected, I don't use multiple Desktops - it's just not the way I work. So when I disconnect my displays and just use the MBP, I'm left with a jumble of windows from all three displays (the built-in one included) all on one Desktop.
What I would like ideally is:
- to have the windows on each monitor move to their own Desktop when I disconnect the monitors;
- then, when I connect the monitors again, the windows would whoosh back to their respective monitors and all be on the same Desktop.
- (In a perfect world, it would also remove the two empty Desktops while the monitors are plugged in, but I'm not sure I can hope for that.)
Can I do this with Stay, or is there another app (or system setting) I need to find to accomplish this? Is this even possible?
