I have 3 monitors connected to my computer running Windows 10:

How can I see which monitor correspond to display 1, 2 and 3 in Windows 10? E.g. does display #1 correspond to monitor 2752 or the Asus?

It is not sure if you want to identify the physical monitors or as the in devices list. If you meant the latter, replace the part "display X" with "display X in the devices list".

This method only works if you can correspond the physical screen to the devices list - e.g by model numbers or disconnecting others and connecting only one.

Identify a display

To see which number corresponds to a display, select Start > Settings > System > Display > Rearrange your displays, then select Identify. A number appears on the screen of the display it's assigned to.


For avoid further confusions try to give names for the monitors - related: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-rename-printer-windows-10.


Another solution, which works in case one doesn't have physical access to the monitors: clicking on Advanced display settings:

It'll display the monitor name for each display:

    Of course this has limited usefulness when some of the screens use exactly the same name, as the two 2752 entries in your example (both question and answer).
