Camera Raw opening on other monitor

Hi

I have a laptop and a screen attached to it. I always use the screen for photoshop as its much larger. I open my NEF raw files directly into Camera Raw. I don't think I made it do that, as its always done it

My problem is when a file is opened, it open Camera Raw on the laptop screen. There does not seem to be a method of moving it to the monitor. Its most annoying as the monitor is calibrated and the laptop screen isn't, so the images show colour differently

I would be glad to hear any suggestion that might solve this

Thanks

If I am understanding the answer correctly, it is not possible to have Camera Raw open on a display other than the primary display? I would very much like to have Camera Raw open on a display other than the primary display. It would ve great to learn that this is possible. Thanks.

Can't you drag it over? That should normally stick.

Thanks. That's what I thought as well, but despite dragging it over, each new image opens on the smaller primary monitor. And I need to drag each time. No stickiness.

Drag camera raw to the primary screen

Quit Photoshop

Reopen Photoshop

Neil,

 

Thanks.

 

The issue is that Camear Raw always opens on the prinary monitor, and I want it to open on a secondary monitor.

 

Stay well,

This is not at all normal behavior. I've been dragging the ACR window (and everything else) between monitors for years, and never had a single issue with it. Wherever you leave it, is where it will be next time you boot up.

 

This sounds a bit like one of those things you get with laptops. There are so many manufacturer modifications to the operating system, that you never know what comes out the other side.

 

I'd try to dig into the laptop and Windows settings. Not sure what to look for, though.

Cannot drag the ACR window at all under Windows 11 (even to reposition it on the primary monitor).  Desktop machine, not a laptop.  Like the other poster, I want to open the ACR window on my secondary monitor.
