When I open an new figure with
figure();
the figure is displayed out of the screen! This only happens when there are 2 monitors connected.
I tried to solve the problem with
set(0,'defaultfigureposition',[x y w h]')
but this only lasts for the current session. This didnt happen with my last installation of the same MATLAB version.
Is there a file or something in installation-path where I can fix this?
Regards Patrick

You can insert the definition of the 'defaultfigureposition' in the files matlabrc.m or startup.m . Then it is applied every time Matlab is started. I assume you find the wrong definition in matlabrc and could fix it there also.
