Changing multi-monitor layout changes screen refresh rate RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have an old screen (800x600 non PnP) that I use for multi monitor. It is correctly configured at 800x600 and 60Hz.

    If the Control Panel, I change the position of this screen maintaining all other configurations (namely the screen resolution) windows changes the refresh rate from 60Hz to 70Hz making unusable. I have to manually go to advanced settings and change it back to the normal value.

    Windows should not change any other value other than it was requested to. The resolution and refresh rate are not connected with "virtual" position of the screen in my desktop.
    The screen refresh rate can only be changed in the advanced settings, I did not even open this window so it should not change any setting inside.
