desktop icons

By iokten ·

Last a few days, when I turn the computer on, when it boots up to desktop, it moves all my icons on my right monitor to the left monitor. Then I have to drag them back to the right monitor. Each time when I turn the power off and on, all icons on the right monitor moves back to the left screen(monitor).
I use dual monitors with one graphics card with two connectors. It just widens my screen. I have tried all desktop settings etc. but no help. I would appreciate any recommendations. thank you

Have you gone into the Monitor settings and moved the second screen to the right of the primary screen? This sounds as if the second monitor has been moved to the other side of the first monitor. You can position the second monitor to the top, Bottom, Left or Right of the primary monitor although for ease of use the second monitor is generally to the right of the first monitor.

What it sounds like is happening is that your second monitor has become the default monitor after someone has moved the second monitor. To check this out just right click on the desktop and chose Proprieties then Settings to get to the Monitor Display screens where you can click on the number 2 monitor and move it around.
