How to change windows2k "default monitor

by bohicam1 In reply to How to change windows2k " ...

ok, for you have proper permissions to change settings? If so, good. Next, is the second monitor installed? Do you have the proper drivers going for the second monitor? If all that is ok then go to your secondary monitor, right click anywhere on the desktop, click settings, click the monitor icon that you wish to make default, select Use this device as the primary monitor then click ok.
Good luck!

Mike, tks for an effort to help. I do have permissions to change seetings but I do not want to install a secondary monitor. I just want to have a sigle monitor, in my case the 21" hp A4033A. Previously I did not have any problems installing my 17" Darius monitor, because the "Properties" button was not greyed out, so I just changed the driver (of course I have the driver for the A4033A), but now, there seems to be no way to change this "default" monitor to anything else. If there is a way then HOW IS IT DONE? Tks again, Bill
