When I press the global hotkey associated with "Minimize/Restore (Quake-style hotkey also)", I'd like to have the console be displayed on the active screen (i.e., where my mouse is currently located).

This is relevant for multi-screen environments; if i'm working on my 2nd screen, then it's useful to have the console also on the 2nd screen if I go back to the 1st screen and need the console then it should appear there instead.

With such an option (i.e., having it automated), then I don't have to worry about knowing additional shortcuts to move the console window myself, it just follows me & displays 'in-context'.

Here's a gist that might help: https://gist.github.com/dsebastien/a9f803713294d2b87217

It certainly ain't great CPP code (I haven't touched a C/CPP line of code in many years) but it does what I meant above ;-)

I'm just no sure where/how to integrate this in ConEmu so any pointers/help would be appreciated ^^.
I found the "DoMinimizeRestore()" function and assume it could fit in there, maybe behind an option flag?
