Bug Description

To replicate:
On a multi monitor system give the focus to an app on a secondary monitor, and hit Alt
Result:
The HUD appears on the primary monitor
Expected result:
The HUD should appear on the same monitor as the application with focus, in the same way the menus for the app appear on that monitor.
