    Keep Multiple Monitor Display Arrangement?


    Hi all,


    Have a challenging one here. I have 2 NVIDIA 1080's with 8 monitors currently plugged invisual arrangement below used for business. Even through there are 10 ports on the back of the cards combined, it appears I can only run 8. On occasion, I want to game on 1 gaming monitornot included in those 8, in SLI, and that requires that I unplug at least one of the 8, and that screws up the display layout when I go back to work. So my question is, can I save this attached display layout, so I don't have to configure the layout EVERYTIME I unplug the gaming monitor?


    Thanks for any help!

    Paul
