Photoshop: Swap screen option

Now that we finally have great support for Hi DPI screens of various sizes in Photoshop cc 19.1 there's an option that I have sorely missed. Currently Photoshop remembers the position on every menu box and window from the last position. So if I would want to work on another screen it would require me to either shift my head constantly back and forth between the screens or spend a lot of time moving all the menus from one monitor to another. 
And the reason why I use two screens is because I use a Wacom Cintiq for painting, but a lot of times I work on technical stuff which I don't use the pen for and would prefer to work on the other higher quality 4K display with more accurate colors. But I always end up sticking with the Wacom because it's too tedious and time consuming to work on an image on one screen and operate the menus on the other. 

So an option to Flip/Swap screens, meaning everything on one screen would move to the other and vice versa would have been amazing! Or some other way that you could easily shift which screen you mainly work on.

I am not sure... but I think I have seen that this is supported on Windows 10 natively, it let's you set a specific display as a default one and all of your apps, windows and what not opens on that display as default...

or maybe that's just for some apps (app developers might need to include that behavior in their code and if that's the case, adobe might need to do that for photoshop and other products)

anyway I will confirm it & will soon get back to you...
