Changing Monitor Identity RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the most frustrating issue with Windows 7 displays.

    ATi Radeon 6800. It has one HDMI and two DVI.

    The HDMI is plugged in to the TV.

    One of the DVI is plugged into the monitor.

    Windows insists on numbering the HDMI as #1. This means that every File Download dialog box displays on the TV instead of the monitor, interrupting anything we are watching on there.

    Yes, the monitor is set as Main Display. But that doesn't stop this issue. How can I change the monitor identities so that the TV is #2?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

    You can try the workaround by using the Winkey+P shortcut to disable TV or follow both nmalinoski and Gordon 7’s suggestions to check.
