I use M-! to run the command shell-command. The output will open the buffer in a new window at the bottom. Can I configure it to appear on the right?

  • This must be a duplicate. Seems like there are multiple questions asking how to position the window that displays a buffer. If so, it would be helpful if someone consolidated them and we closed all but one. – Drew Nov 5 '17 at 5:55

Packages that help you to customize window location settings include Shackle (my recommendation) and Popwin

    Can you add more detail to your answer to help the OP? For example, what would be the exact shackle rules to get what the OP wants? – Kaushal Modi Jun 8 '17 at 19:21
