Windows Vista Window Issue

Windows Vista Window Issue

When working on Windows Vista, there seems to be an issue when I plug my laptop into another monitor, using both monitors. The issues is after using both monitors, I unplug my laptop from the other monitor while my laptop is on, but the programs still think there is another monitor not returning to only the laptop screen. Is there a way to auto reposition windows for all programs back to one monitor without doing a reboot? Rebooting is sometimes a big hassle when I am working.

It is possible to disable the screens of many laptops with an Fn + other key shortcut.

"There's a command-line tool called ResSwitch that can disable the secondary display, automatically taking all windows back to the primary. You could copy this

resswitch /device:\\.\DISPLAY2 /detach

into a batch file and put it on quicklaunch."
