    Main Display Issue

    Anyone come across this issue?
    Tagging @Kari in to add to the list of bugs found in Win10 if it is determined to be a bug.

    I have 3 monitors, i always have the middle screen as my main display however today i noticed that the time/date and notifications area etc were now on my left display.

    The below image shows that i have 3 screens, and that the middle one is my main display however the time/date doesn't move to it, it stays on the left display.

    It's not a massive issue but my OCD is taking a massive beating :)

    Hello Jamie,

    It's not doing it on my three monitors. Does changing the main display to another one and back sort it?

    Did you happen to have video driver update before this happened?

    Very strange, setting it to and back as my main display didn't fix it... i repeated it a few times and all of a sudden all 3 screens refreshed and now the middle monitor is showing the time/date as normal

    Maybe it was just my graphics playing up for a moment?

    My OCD is back to a healthy level
