I have recently added a second monitor to a friends computer and it is working fine, except that it says that I have got three screens and the main screen it says is two.

The below screenshot will clarify more:

enter image description here

The problem is that when I go into a game (or other fullscreen programs) it will change the order of the screens, so screen #1 will be on the left after I come out of a game.

Please let me know if you can think of anyway of changing/stopping this.

  • Sorry, may be being a bit dim, but how do you do that? – DarkMantis Aug 8 '12 at 15:40
  • Drop down box next to Display: – Ramhound Aug 8 '12 at 15:46
  • Sorry yeah done that :) Thanks mate, it worked. If you want to submit it as an answer then I'll accept it :) – DarkMantis Aug 8 '12 at 15:51

From your screenshot you currently have "2|3. Multiple Monitors" on the display setting.

Click on the drop down and set it to be a single display.
