Remote PC control window always opens on wrong monitor

Hello everyone,

I have the following issue: I have an laptop and additional monitor, and I would like everything related to TeamViewer to be opened on my second (additional) screen. I have managed to set the starting TeamViewer window to the second screen, but the new window that opens when I connect to remote PC always opens on laptop (primary) screen. I have tried setting the "initial screen" setting in the properties -> advanced tab, but it doesen't help. Am I missing something that should solve this issue?

Best regards,

    I have the same issue, a workaround is to change the primary monitor in Windows. The connection screen will always open on the primary Windows monitor.
