I'm using an extended monitor. Currently, when viewing the display monitors in the OS, I see they are listed as below.

1 2

My problem is that my extended monitor is not on my right hand-side as it says - i.e. physically I place it on the left. What I want is to change the posistions listed in the OS to be

2 1

How can I do that?

Wow... It's so naive of me. After posting the question, I try dragging the monitor 2 and drop it on the left of monitor 1 and everything is right what I expect.

So simply, use drag 'n' drop to deal with the mornitor positions.

Don't feel bad - I have a lot of customers who can't get it in their heads that it doesn't matter if the numbers are in order or not, as long as they're CORRECT. It's only intuitive once you realize what it's representing. – Shinrai Mar 24 '11 at 16:11

@Spike - One of the few things I've ever liked about Catalyst Control Center is the way it handles arranging monitors in Eyefinity display groups. Instead of numbering them, it turns them blue one at a time and asks you to click the corresponding part of the thumbnail. – Shinrai Feb 21 '14 at 2:41

Talk about non-obvious. Why do people make everything into some stupid video game, where it is "guess if this is an icon, guess what actions you can apply, and what the actions might do". – Ira Baxter Apr 15 '14 at 14:19

I never knew you could click and drag those screens, and I've been working with extended displays for years! Now I can finally have my monitor on the left of my laptop. :) – apnorton Jul 16 '14 at 1:45
