    I have the same problem, so to me this would be a very useful feature.

    Spotify remembers which monitor to start on, chrome too.
    Why doesn't discord remember?

    I don't think that's how it works. Maybe it can restore the window size, but the OS manages where the window goes... (comment to this if im an idiot and don't know how OSs work at all)

    Try moving discord to the monitor of your choice and set it to windowed mode instead of full screen, then close out Discord from system tray.  It should then reopen in windowed mode on the monitor you set it to

    I can't say I know how it works either, but somehow Chrome knows. And Steam and Battle.net both know where they were last. And that's across a multi-monitor setup too. So whatever they're doing/hooking into, it'd be great if discord could also remember where and on which monitor I had it last.

    It opens on (i assume) the monitor you have set as default.
    But the ridiculous issues that've come since the "security fix" that moves the token on startup and exit have been plainly painful.

    It may take discord ages to fix it, hopefully not though.

    Hope something good comes of it soon.

    It is pretty irritating that discord starts up on the default monitor every time it starts, especially given that is the same monitor where full screen games go. As a side note, if I could move the window as soon as it took the screen it would be less bothersome, but it takes it's sweet time getting the top bar initialized so that I can grab the window to move it.

    To be explicitly clear - this issue only happens for discord if you leave it maximized - then close it - then open it again.

    It will open on your main monitor /every time/ if it was closed while maximized. Please fix this.

    @rue is right!!!

     

    The problem is with fullscreen mode and it matters how you close discord.

    Fix:

    Click box at top right of the window,

    adjust window to how you'd like it,

    Now don't close your window through the icon in the task bar.

    Go down instead to the lil icon in the system tray (the lil expandable arrow near your clock)

    Right click on that little bugger in there and choose quit.

     

    When you open discord it will now be where you left it.

    @Shanazzyone - as a person who never once had discord in fullscreen mode, I can confirm that yours is not the solution.


    It also occurs if you have different resolutions on different screens - mine is always 3/4th out of monitor bonds when I open it up, I only see the top right corner of the discord window. 

    My left screen is 1080p, my right one (main) is 2160p - discord is usually on the left half of the 1080p screen.

    Every time I open discord App on MAC OSX, it opens full screen on my main monitor, but it was last opened on my secondary monitor. I need to resize it and move it each time I open it. My other OSX apps remember their last opened position.

    This also needs to happen during updates... The other ticket I made was closed saying this is a duplicate so figured I'd mention this here.
