    Dual Monitor System Desktop Is Unstable


    Windows 10 Pro, Version 1809 (17763.437), 16GB RAM, AMD RADEON HD 6350 Video card;
    System has two VGA Monitors attached.
    WIth only one monitor, desktop configuration is stable - ie, appears the same after each boot.
    With TWO monitors, desktop configuration is unstable - ie, is unpredictable following reboot.
    By this I mean, some desktop icons suddenly appear on second monitor rather than first after reboot.
    This kinda reeks!

    I've never before seen such behavior.
    If anyone knows of a fix, I'd be glad to learn of it.
    Thanks,

    :)
