How to make adobe acrobat print box open on monitor I'm currently using

I wanted to see if anyone has a fix for what I think is an incredibly annoying issue. My current setup is that I have a single monitor on my regular desk and two monitors on a standing desk behind me. The single monitor on my regular desk is my primary monitor. The issue is that if I'm using Adobe Arcrobat reader on my 2nd or 3rd monitor and want to print, the print dialogue box always opens on my primary monitor, which forces me to turn around to hit ok (or change the print setting). Same issue happens with any pop up box (e.g., when you do a search and the box pops up to say that you reached the end of the document). Is that a way to change this so that the pop up boxes only open on the monitor where adobe is currently open? So, for example, if I'm using monitor #2 at my standing desk, the Adobe boxes will only open on monitor #2?

I also sometimes have a similar issue with outlook, where I click on an email on one monitor and the email opens up on another monitor. So a fix for that would be good as well. Basically, when I'm working on one monitor I don't ever want anything to pop up on another monitor, unless I purposely open another program/document on that other monitor.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Have you already tried enabling the "Centre child windows over the parent window" option on the Settings > Window Management tab?

If so and that didn't help, try creating a rule on the Settings > Triggers tab like the attached screenshot. It will force all new windows to move to the monitor that the mouse cursor is on when they open :)

Hope that helps!

I tried both of those things and it's still not working. For example, I'm using outlook on monitor 2 now, and when I hit reply to an email the reply box opens on monitor 1 (main monitor).

I take it back. Everything seems to be working how I want it after restarting my computer. Thanks for the help!
