  1. Saving Display Settings For Multiple Monitors


    All,

    Didn't really see a copy for this question in the forums when I searched, but if I missed it my apologies.

    Okay my issue:
    I have a Surface Book 2 that I frequently will pair with my monitor through the use of a Microsoft Surface Dock.
    My issue is that I will go to the display settings and change it to display only on 2 (My External Monitor).
    That all works fine until I disconnect my surface for whatever reason (Working From Home, Taking to meeting).
    At this point when I reconnect, the display settings have defaulted back to duplicate display.
    I wish to make the default to display only on 2.
    Any ideas on how to fixate this setting?

    Any help or tips would be appreciated, Thanks!

    :)

    How to save a multiple displays settings?

    Hi VAinc,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums

    You may want to answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    1. May I know the make and model of the PC?
    2. Did you try updating your display driver?
    3. Are you getting any error message?

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Steps 1:

    1. Go to settings
    2. Click on “System"
    3. Then click on Display
    4. Move your mouse to the monitor that needs to be set as primary and check the box
      "Make this my main display"
    5. Under "Multiple displays" select "Duplicate these displays"
    6. Then select “Keep this display settings
    Once you make these changes, you may restart the computer and check.

    Hope it helps,

    Mithin EJ
