Windows 10: Display Monitor Setting Changes on Startup

    Display Monitor Setting Changes on Startup

    I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 10. My main display monitor is a LG 24 widescreen plugged into the laptop.

    With Windows 7, I had no problems in using Fn key f5 to set the display to only the LG (showing as "CRT" on the screen). This did not change when I re-booted the laptop.

    With windows 10, it reverts back to to the default setting and I get the laptop screen and the monitor lit up.. I frequently get a different resolution on the display too, until I open the laptop and re-set the display with the Fn key. This is annoying, as I use an external keyboard (which doesn't flip the Fn key) with the laptop lip down.

    I've also tried via Control Panel (Display) but that doesn't hold the setting either.

    I'd be grateful for any advice on how to set the display and keep it there.

    Pressing the key and the P key may be easier than messing with the Fn keys. I have dual displays on my laptop but my second screen is USB3. Window 10 remembers if it was set to extend. If it's plugged in when I boot up I get dual displays. If it's not plugged in, it defaults to PC Only, the one built in screen. Same deal on my desktop PC. I run triple monitors on it. Windows 10 remembers if I left it in Extend when I shut down. I put shortcuts on my taskbar and Start Screen for PC Only and Extend. I switch to 1 screen when gaming and switch back to all 3 when done. Wish I could be more help.

    Thanks very much for the reply. At least I can now use the Windows key + P to make life easier if it doesn't hold the settings on start up (I wasn't aware of that option for the remote keyboard).

    I've been doing it that way since Windows 7. My desktop PC doesn't have the Fn function for that like a laptop does. It might actually stick doing it that way. Hopefully.
