      I have the luxury of having two external monitors, and I also use the laptop monitor, making three.

      Almost every time I detach the laptop from the setup, when I reattach it, the screen orientation has changed.

      From left to right, the correct setup of the monitors is: portrait; portrait flipped, and landscape (the laptop).

      When change it the monitors come up as portrait flipped, portrait, and landscape – so both of the external monitors display upside down. They are also in the wrong sequence, with the one on the left being on the right and vice versa.

      So every time I take the laptop into our conference room, and nearly every morning when I reconnect, I have to open Display Settings and change everything back.

      It’s not a huge deal; but it’s five minutes or so every single day. And it annoys me that I cannot fix it.

      How to stop this from happening? Please!?

      In my experience this kind of thing is usually handled by the graphics drivers.

      What GPU do you have and is the driver version from Microsoft, laptop manufacturer, or GPU brand?
      Also how are the displays connected and would the two that are swapped happen to be identical? (Connector type, and docked or direct to laptop?)

      My experience has been that it’s always a fight. Windows wants to put the primary display on the left.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
