How to Change Your Primary Monitor in Windows 10

If you have more than one monitor connected to your computer, you can change which one is your primary monitor. This is the monitor that will display the Start menu and taskbar. It will also be where the mouse pointer starts when you move it across your desktop.

To change your primary monitor, use the following steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click System.
  3. Click Display.
  4. Under “Select and rearrange displays,” click the display you want to be your main display. If you have more than one display connected to your PC, you’ll see a diagram of all connected displays here.
  5. Click the “Make this my main display” checkbox.
  6. Click Apply.

Your primary monitor will now be changed. This is a quick and easy way to change which monitor is your primary display without having to disconnect any cables or move any hardware around.
