Application Positioning

If you would like east-tec Eraser to open exactly at the screen position you left it the last time you used it, you can make it remember that screen position. This feature is especially useful if you run the program on multiple monitors. By default, it opens in the middle of your screen, but if you had moved the interface window, for instance, to the top-left of your screen and enabled this feature, the next time you open the program, it will open at the top-left of your screen. To enable it, tick Remember window position on exit from the settings option list.
