    Multiple displays - after update, Monitor One and Two keep switching. Rearranging Displays...


    Updated a few weeks ago and Display one main screen was on my right monitor. It's usually on the left.

    I went into settings and dragged Monitor One icon from the right back to the left.

    The displays looked fine, but the mouse wouldn't go from the left monitor to the right. I had to drag it out the left of the left monitor to come in the right side of the right monitor.


    Kept tweaking things, and eventually just swapped plugs. Fixed.


    Now Windows updated again, and the problem is back. I can swap plugs again, but I'd like to know how to stop this from happening every damn time.


    TIA

    :)
