    How can I precisely align my monitors?

    I have multiple monitors of varying sizes.
    When I try to align how my monitors are positioned, Windows 10 (unlike the more advanced operating systems that came before it) forces the monitors to be snapped together with an extreme priority to the bottom of the monitors, and I am completely incapable of aligning my center monitor so that its top matches the tops of the monitors next to it.

    Is there any other option for aligning monitors? Is there perhaps a file where I can manually type in the offset values?

    In settings / System / Display you can align displays. Just click (and hold) on display you want to move, and drag it to desired position (up - down).

    You can also do it with up /down keys: select display and click up down

    That helps a lot, and it looks like I can make smaller steps by holding shift.
    It's hard to tell if I'm lining them up exactly right, especially since each time I select a monitor it suddenly jumps to snap into place. So I'm still interested if there is any way to specify an exact coordinate.
    Still, this helps me get MUCH closer than before. Thank you!
