    Move entire Start Menu to different monitor


    I have a dual monitor setup and all of a sudden, when I open the Start Menu, it appears on the second monitor. How do I move it back to the primary monitor. I am using Display Fusion to manage my monitors

    Sounds like this is a display fusion issue. I have dual monitors - one my laptop screen and the other a free standing monitor - and have the freestanding monitor set as the primary display. The start menu pops up next to the task bar in the expected area.

    Thanks for your reply. I have been using this setup with Display Fusion for months and the problem just appeared today.
    Is there a key combination to switch Start Menu from one monitor to another?

    No key combo that I'm aware of. I can move the task bar around and the start menu goes with it.

    Question, could you show me a screenshot of both monitors at the same time?

    This is embarrassing, but when I restarted Windows 10, the problem seemed to resolve itself and the Start Menu is back on the primary monitor.
    Thank you for your replies
