[Wishlist] Display all dialog boxes on the monitor where the Settings window is positioned

In current version (v9.0.x), "Settings" and "Add/Edit Favorite" windows position and size are remembered and saved in the ini file. The first time they are displayed at the center of main monitor (if system has multiple monitors). But other dialog boxes ("Add Favorite Type", "Options" and secondary dialog boxes) are always positioned at the center of the main monitor.

The request is to open these windows at the center of the monitor where is located the main "Settings" window. This will also apply to the first time the "Add/Edit Favorite" window is open (after that its position will be remembered as now).

FYI, the position of the "Settings" and "Add/Edit Favorite" and "Move favorite" (and "Move favorites") is remembered to allow the display of long submenu paths in the "Settings" list or in the other dialog boxes "Menu" drop down lists. In my view, it is not necessary to remember the position and size of the other dialog boxes.

You can discuss this request in this thread.

[Wishlist] Switch to an existing Explorer window

From Helge: an additional QAP special feature which shows the currently opened windows explorer folders like the “current folders” feature already available (renamed "Reuse an Open Folder"), but with the difference that choosing a currently opened folder in QAP doesn’t open the same folder in a new explorer window / instance. Instead I would find great if the already opened explorer window with the folder chosen in QAP would just come to the front.

[Wishlist] Option to always open the folders in the running instance

Originally suggested for Total Commander by Horst, but applicable to Explorer and other file managers.

Horst: "I would like a Total Commander option to always use the running instance (/o) even without using the Tab option. Currently I accumulate many tabs which I have to close manualy. I think this will be liked by many TC users to."

Jean: "When you open the QAP menu in a current TC window, it change the folder to navigate inside the current window. If you open a folder using the popup menu from another window, it will open a new tab or a new TC instance. What you want is an option to always change folder the current TC window?"

Horst: "Yes, exactly. I often use the left click from the tray menu and not a pop-up from inside of a TC window."

[Wishlist] When launching a folder in a new Explorer, restore initial position of the window

When the user is adding a folder from an Explorer window using the Add this folder (or Add this folder express) menu, memorize the position and size of the window.

When the user open a favorite folder using the regular Launch hotkey, the new Explorer window created to load the favorite folder is positioned and sized as it was when the favorite was created.

These attributes could also be edited in the Add/Edit Favorite dialog box, allowing user to enter position/size for favorites added with the Settings Add button.
