Reset maya windows script

Detached maya windows have an annoying habit of getting lost when switching from a multi-monitor window to a single monitor setup!!! (or just in general, when they get lost under other application windows or  the start bar >.<)

All hope is not lost however, here are two solutions to the problem:


  • Close maya and delete the window preferences file (annoying)
    • This file is call windowPrefs.mel, and is located in your default “prefs” folder – This file basically stores the list of the last locations  of the default maya windows. It gets updated  when maya exits.


  • Run this maya script I cobbled together (less annoying)
