Question: Opening and Moving Program Windows Via Code

So I have these 6 monitors all hooked up to the same computer. On each is going to be a different fullscreen application. I need to make a menu in some language(vb.net, html, java, whatever) that can open preset applications and then move them to a certain locations on the different monitors and then making them fullscreen. After much reseach I am at a loss for finding a solution to this.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Having six monitors is really no different than having one. Any language can place a window on the screen. You can even do this in WSH to be honest.

Count up your resolutions (this is much easier if they are all the same.

The top left pixel of the main monitor is 0,0 and the screen grid continues through each of your montors. So if you had 6 monitors all at 1024x768, the upper left corner of the third monitor would be 2049,0.

Each monitor only extends the SAME desktop.

Therefore, any program or script that can move a window based on pixel location will do the trick for you.
