Stay overview

Stay is for those who are fastidious about keeping their windows tidy. Stay ensures that your windows are always where you want them to be, even as you connect and disconnect displays. Move your windows to where you want them, then have Stay store them. Once stored, windows can be returned to their stored state at any time by having Stay restore them.

I love this app and it worked great so far but OSX Big Sur broke it and I'm now getting "You do not have permission to open the application “Stay”. Contact your computer or network administrator for assistance." error message :( Hope this is fixed soon.

Works for the most part, but not very well with Adobe apps (especially their tool panels), which is what I have to use at work. Emailed developer twice in February about it and he has not responded to either email, therefore, two stars.

I was after an app that would restore specific windows and their paticular positions in the Finder (macOS 10.12.6) after a restart. Found Stay, tried the demo for 30 seconds and paid for a reg code immediately. Exactly what I was after.

Can't live without this one. Fixes nearly all of the problems when living with multiple displays on macOS. I have it starting up with Starupizer2 right at the start so when I restart my Mac, voila, I'm back to where I need to be!

I love Stay! Running from meeting to my desk and to another meeting has me plugging in my external display and bam, all my windows go back to the way they are supposed to be thanks to Stay! I've only got 1 beef: I have 2 windows open for Chrome, one on each monitor. It would be great if when I connected the external monitor to my mbp, Stay would remember which window was on the external. As it happens now, I have to move the 1 chrome window I like to keep on the external back, but honestly, moving 1 window back into position is nothing compared to what I had to do before I had Stay. Great APP!
