    I'm curious about where you stash the legacy client's radar map on your desktop. ("Legacy client" refers here to the old "2d" client.) Since the most recent set of patches, it seems the radar map always opens in the upper left corner and I always end up dragging it to the upper right corner.

    If you visualize your UO window being a 3x3 square (i.e., upper, middle and lower rows; left, middle, and right columns), where (approximately) do you prefer to place the legacy client's radar map while you're playing?

    And just out of curiosity and regardless of which client you use, what's the relationship between where you place items on your desktop versus which is your dominant hand?

    I'm right-handed and almost always play with the game window (i.e., where my character is seen) on the left side with the paperdoll (if open), legacy client journal, backpack, map, spell icons, health bar for character and pets mostly stashed on the right side of the desktop. However, if I'm using the enhanced client, I put the chat window on the left side.

    Same as you, prefer the radar in the extreme upper right corner. It's a drag to always have to drag the radar. Whether mainly playing right handed, or rarely left handed, game window is to upper left, icons on the bottom and right, pdoll lower right, health bar usually upper left or middle right.

    Lol :D

    But yeah. Always the upper right. It just feels natural there.

    I didn't vote because I switch it between upper left and upper right, depending on the direction I am having to walk/run at the moment

    I prefer the upper middle, slightly to the right of center, as when I'm in an unfamiliar area (like in Ter Mur, the underworld or the Abyss), I like to have it to where I can easily compare it to the terrain in the game window (which is in the upper left, stretching past the middle going left to right). I keep the paperdoll to the right - when I have it open.

    I like UOMap on the second monitor.

    I wish I could have that functionality with the ingame radar.

    Mine: upper right.

    This is a throwback from the first days of UO where that was the default screen position.
