    Changing number labels for monitors


    Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.254)


    I have a setup using 3 monitors, and originally they were numbered correctly (1,2,3, going left-to-right). However, after reformatting my computer, the numbers have changed themselves to be 1,3,2 going left-to-right.

    This is very annoying for programs that use the second monitor because they instead appear in my third.

    :)
