Quicklaunch provides the ability to manage how and where an application will be displayed when it is started. This feature allows you to, for example, have a whiteboard or PowerPoint application open on one monitor and launch a Skype for Business meeting automatically on another screen. 

NOTE: There is a section at the end of this FAQ which demonstrates how to find out the window names that Quicklaunch uses.

Display Rules are associated with Action Tiles, One-Click-Join on the schedule, and the Meet Now button in Tabbed Mode. They are created in Settings in the following locations:

Settings > Actions > Actions

Settings > Calendar > Meetings

Settings > Calendar > Meet Now

Brief Description

Quicklaunch has a default display rule for most applications. You can edit the default display rule OR create a new one by clicking on the "+" icon in the bottom left. 

Rule Name – Each Application has a rule within our library in Quicklaunch or you can create your own rules for your applications.

Window Lookup – Allows Quicklaunch to locate the window to be positioned (set in default action tiles)

Change State – Set to Open a Window -  Maximized, Minimized, Normal (last state) and Hidden

Change Z Order – Set to open on the top or bottom

Move to Screen – Set the location of where the application opens screen 1-6

Move to Location – Set specific location of the application – used when starting applications in a specific area of the screen

Change Size – Set specific size of the application when opening

Delay - Allows a delay to be set before applying the display rule


Window Lookup

Windows Lookup uses the title of the window or the windows class name to identify which application window to move.

To find what to enter into these fields, open your desired application. 

Change State 

Change State allows you to start the application minimized, maximized, normal (last time program was open), or hidden.

NOTE1: If Change State is set to Maximized, it will override the Change Size option.

NOTE2: If Change State is set to Hidden, it will override Change Z-Order


Z-Order allows you to choose whether the application opens on top or on the bottom.

Move to Screen

Move to Screen allows you to select which display the application will open on. To identify which display to use click "Identify Screens" at the top right of the current settings screen.

Move to Location and Change Size

Move to Location and Change Size are both based on pixel counts. 

Examples which demonstrate Move to Location:

1) With x = 0 and y = 0 the top left of the application window will be at the top left of the display.

2) With x = 200 and y = 200 the top left of the application window would start 200 pixels from the top and 200 pixels from the left hand side of the screen.

How to look up what your window is called.

First, enter Quicklaunch settings by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL + ALT + S. 

Select the Display tab on the left and click on View Open Windows.

Next, select the filter button at the top of the names column.

Change the dropdown menu to say "Contains"

Enter your program name and select "Filter."

Your program name and window class will be displayed.
