Screens reversed in extended desktop -- how to undo?

May 19, 2020 at 15:43:16
Specs: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 3.3 GHz / 32GB
I have a Windows 10 computer that is configured for extended desktop. The main screen is directly in front of me. The other screen is to the right. The extended desktop configuration has been in place for several years.

I booted the computer today and find the screens are reversed. What was formerly displayed on the main screen in front of me is now displayed on the screen to the right. And vice versa.

What happened to reverse the screens?

More importantly, how do I undo the reverse?

re: "What happened to reverse the screens?"

That is not something I can answer, so I'll move on to the "more important" question, how to "unreverse" them:

1 - Click the Windows icon in the lower left of your main display

2 - Choose Settings (the gear icon)

3 - Choose Display

4 - Click and hold one of the Display boxes (labeled 1 & 2) and drag it to the other side of the other display box.

That should fix things. Let us know if it doesn't. Good luck!

No idea.

Right click on your desktop and select Screen resolution.
You can change the setting there.

More here, if needed.

Thanks guys. I got the screens back to where I want them. But without knowing what caused the first reversal I am apprehensive that they will unreverse themselves at some random time. At least if they do I know how to deal with it.
