Atom multi monitor quirk: everytime I open a folder, it goes to the left monitor


#1

I have a setup with two monitors. Once i attempted to do a side by side compare of code and moved an atom window to the left monitor. Now, everytime i open that same folder, it opens on that left side, no matter how many times i move it back to the right side and close it. Is this normal? Is there any way to fix that?

atom version 1.0.19 on windows 7 64bit

You should be able to fix the problem by completely exiting all instances of Atom and deleting or renaming the ~/.atom/storage directory (sorry, I keep forgetting exactly where that directory is on Windows). All your window positions and sizes will reset though.
