Hi Anbang,

Please add the following commands to your .vmdrc file:

For the OpenGL Display: display reposition “your x-coordinate” “your y-coordinate”
For tk console: menu tkcon move “your x-coordinate” “your y-coordinate”

Subject: vmd-l: Startup position of OpenGL Display window and VMD console window
Dear VMD-Community,

I have read VMD user's guide, and have known to specify the startup position of VMD Main window by writing statements in vmd.rc:
menu main move 10 550

However, how can I specify the startup position of the OpenGL Display window and the VMD Console window?
I executed command "menu list", but found that there is no name for those two windows.

All the best,
