    Secondary monitor


    Recently I bought a slightly larger monitor and planned to use the older one as a secondary monitor. I went in via 'Display Settings' but have managed to screw things up and I've ended up making this smaller monitor the primary one.
    How might I reverse this and thus make the larger monitor the primary one?
    Thanks.

    Hi @Struggler79, welcome to tenforums.com!

    Go to Settings/System/Display, pick(highlight) the monitor you want as Primary, check 'Make this my main display', click 'Apply'.

    Secondary monitor


    Sadly that didn't work for me as I am not seeing those lower choices showing on your screen as compared with mine. However I have a local guru about t work with Team Viewer for me so the problem should so be overcome.
    Thanks anyway.
