    I am trying to cause MP to open in my third monitor in windowed mode. In MP config, when I try to un-check Start MediaPortal in fullscreen mode, the checkmark remains. Other options can be unchecked and checked at will.

    When I inspect the Windows shortcut settings, the target is set to MediaPortal.exe without command line options. Run is set to Normal Window.

    MP always starts in my desired monitor, but in fullscreen and I am trying to start it in the same monitor but windowed as a work-around to a different mouse click problem that I plan to post separately.

    I am suspicious that my window manager DisplayFusion is somehow intervening, but it's trigger list has no such entry. Also, the intervention here is real-time... I cannot clear the checkmark from inside MP Configuration.

    What might force this setting to be always on?
