Hi Wei,

There is nothing in ROOT allowing to select the display on which the canvas is displayed. You could try to move your canvas to the other screen this way: TCanvas *c = new TCanvas("c", "a canvas");
Or (depending on your screen resolution):

Cheers, Bertrand.

I have two terminals connect to the laptop running win7. One is the main display and the other one is the extended display. When running ROOT, the canvas always pop-up into the main display. Is it possible to configure it such that it automatically goes into the extended display? Thanks
