    Wrong Monitor gets selected when selecting "only pc monitor"


    So I have two Monitor;
    1. My main PC Monitor
    2. My TV which I use as a second monitor

    So my problem is that when I select "only pc monitor" after clicking "Windows" and "P", it selects my TV even though I have my PC Monitor selected as my main Monitor. What can I do about it?

    Hi Billy,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor and an expert with Windows 10.

    I understand your concern with Multiple displays.

    To get your PC to recognize multiple monitors:

    1. Verify that your cables are connected properly to the new monitors.

    2. Select how you want the desktop to display. You can press the Windows logo key + P and select an option, or use the following steps if you need more settings options.

    3. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select Display settings to open the Display page. Your PC should automatically detect your monitors and show your desktop. If you don't see the monitors, select Detect.

    4. Scroll down to Multiple displays, then select an option from the drop-down list to determine how your desktop will display across your screens. For the largest work area, select Extend desktop.

    5. Select Keep changes.

    6. Scroll up to Resolution and select an option. We suggest that you use the recommended resolution settings.

    7. Select Keep changes.

    Double Monitor Setup is not connecting

    Hi Yuri,

    To setup dual monitors, I suggest you to press Windows + P keys
    and select Extend or the required option and check for status. If you are still unable to setup dual monitor, suggest you to update the Display Adapter driver by following the steps provided below and check for status.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapters.
    • Right click on the driver and select Update Driver Software.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to update the driver.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.
