    Cannot extend display to second monitor

    I am using windows 10 pro on my Powerspec desktop PC. I have one HP monitor and one AOC monitor. I had three monitors (one HP and 2 AOC monitors) working fine using extended display. After removing one monitor (now have 2), the extended display does not work any more. I can use "Duplicate these displays", "Show only on 1" or "Show only on 2", all work fine, except "Extend these displays". When I select Extended, the second screen shows up with task bar, but I cannot move any window onto the second screen. The mouse does not move over either. I tried update the display driver, rebooting computer, reconnect the cable, nothing works! What's wrong?

    Try moving the mouse cursor in the opposite direction. If that tracks to your other screen, you can rearrange your monitors in the Display Settings area and get things working properly.

    Thanks a lot Ed! You are right, when I move mouse to the opposite direction, it went to the other screen! I guess the order of the screen is wrong. How do I rearrange the order? Thanks again for your quick help!

    I was able to drag my screen and change the order on Display Settings. Now it work correctly. Thanks, Ed, for your help! Save me hours of frustration!
