Can't setup GNOME 42 to open windows on active screen

Back when I used KDE Plasma, I had a KWin script installed that allowed me to always open a new window on my dual monitor setup on the active screen (being the active screen the one where my mouse cursor would be at the moment), however, I can’t find anywhere how to change this behavior in GNOME 42. Any tips on how to do it? Thanks in advance!

In Gnome, so-called “extensions” are responsible for individualizing your desktop.
These can be installed from here:

Please note that Gnome is based on Wayland and not all extensions have to work on an X server session.

On the fast search I have this extension:

Search term was “Window”

Maybe there is another user who has the same problem and can recommend an extension.

That’s how mine appears to work on wayland.

Checked with gnome terminal and firefox. Starting the application and opening a new window.

This is a brand new installation.

Do you have some extensions active?


Thank you so much! I knew what extensions were but never occurred to me that one could solve this issue.
