How to Change Monitor 1 and 2 – A Simple Guide

If you’re like most people, you have two monitors set up on your computer. One is probably your main monitor, and the other is likely your secondary monitor. But what if you want to change which monitor is which?

It’s actually quite easy to do, and in this article we’ll show you how. Just follow the steps below and you’ll have your monitors swapped in no time.

First, you’ll need to open the Display Settings dialog box. To do this, just right-click on your desktop and select “Display Settings” from the pop-up menu. Alternatively, you can also open the Control Panel and select “Display” from the “Appearance and Personalization” category.

Once the Display Settings dialog box is open, take a look at the “Multiple displays” drop-down menu. By default, it’s probably set to “Duplicate these displays,” which is what you want to change.

Click on the drop-down menu and select the “Extend these displays” option. This will cause your monitors to behave as if they’re one big monitor, which is what we want.

Now that your monitors are extended, you can simply drag and drop each display to rearrange them. So if you want your main monitor to be on the left, just drag it to the left. And if you want your secondary monitor to be on the right, just drag it to the right.

Once you’re done, just click the “Apply” button and your changes will be saved. That’s all there is to it!
