What do you call this thing that causes some apps & windows that spontaneously move to another screen? And how do I control it?
It is especially annoying when I'm in a Zoom meeting. I close a Safari window and then my Zoom window vanishes to the other screen. Thanks.
Hey there fishlips,
We'd like to help get your apps to stay on the intended screen.
While you may need to contact Apple Support, let's rule out some basics first. It sounds like you may be referring to working in multiple spaces and Mission Control. You can learn more about this here:

If that doesn't help, the following steps may lead to a resolution.
5. While you'll also want to test it restarted normally afterwards, this link shows how to Start up your Mac in safe mode.
