Customer Display using Custom Browser printer issue


#1

Hi All.

I have setup a Customer Display using Custom browser printer, I have been using this for almost a year now.

works great however one annoying problem I have is, sometimes the internet browser decides to open on the main screen and not the second, and also when there is a power cut and the system is rebooted. I have to manual using a mouse drag the internet browser on to the second display.

My question is, are there any alternatives to the customer browser printer display method or any tricks which I can perform to ensure that the custom browser printer always opens on the second display regardless of a power cut etc.?

thank you in advance

Couple of suggestions here;

This is a windows issue rather than samba.

Thanks @JTRTech,

I have seen this but nothing works. still same issue.

is there any alternatives to custom browser printer? any other way to create a customer display without using custom browser printer?

Its a second screen so any solution is likely to suffer from similar window placement issues.
There will be a viable solution for window screen, just need to find it.
What version of windows do you use.
A ups might elevate the power cut issue.

currently using windows 10.

its been a while but I used displayfusion before now and sure it has facility to set app monitors or set trigger to move window;

I mainly used it for multi screen taskbar on windows 7 but since windows does this I dont use anymore.

The best solution is to use GQL and build an app for that but it would not be easy and you would get little support other than the built in documentation for gql.

Even that would likely still have similar issue of which screen it loads in as it would still need to run in a window - most likely browser.
