    Dual Montor Questions

    have my windows 10 pc hooked up to a 1080p display (displayport out) and a 4k hdr tv (hdmi out).

    1. in display settings the 1080p display shows as display #2 (even tho it's marked as "make this my main display), would like it to show as display #1, how do i make this happen? or does windows assign display numbers based on the video output port used?

    2. if i select "duplicate these displays" i lose hdr support for the 4k hdr display, the hdr toggle becomes disabled, apparently windows defaults to the lowest resolution when this option is selected - if i want hdr support for my 4k hdr display i have to select "extend these displays"... is there a way to get 4k hdr support when using "duplicate these displays"? maybe if i make my 4k hdr display the main display?

    3. is there a built-in display option, or third party software option, that will allow me to:

    - view both displays on one display, even temporarily?

    - move an open window from a display that is off to the display that is on? for example, if i open a program, let's say spotify, on display 2 and the turn off display 2, i can see that spotify is open from the icon in the taskbar on display 1, and can even close it using the icon, but i can't move the opened program from display 2 (off) to display 1, and if i close the program (using the taskbar icon) and reopen it it will reopen on display 2.
