If you mean the ones returned by google groups when searching for
-tkinter center screen- then I guess there isn't anything easier. (at

To me it looked like only instances of Toplevel have the methods you
mention. Those methods deal with displaying windows, so they don't
really make sense for a Listbox widget, for example.
