How do I make my desktop identify Monitor 2 as Monitor 1?
I run dual monitors and my desktop identifies my second monitor as Monitor 1 and my primary monitor as Monitor 2. Yes I already know that you can set a monitor to be the primary display but it doesn't change the identification on the desktop itself. My primary monitor (which is set to also be my primary display on the settings) identifies as Monitor 2. It isn't that big of a deal and it's just something small that I would like to change. The reason is because sometimes I like to access my bios and it defaults to my second monitor because I believe that it's because it's labeled as Monitor 1. However, it could be because it is connected to my Motherboard and it defaults to Monitor 1 regardless. I have tried to disconnect the monitor, turn on the system with just my primary monitor that is connected to my GPU, and then connect it afterwards but it still says the same thing. I don't want to connect both monitors to my GPU because I don't want loss in quality. It's not that big of a deal if there is no way I can switch it but I was just wondering if there was a way. Thanks!
Cannot change hardware preference of motherboard port being #1 and card port being #2. You could swap cords to go to opposite ports? That assumes the connector types let you do that, and resolution limits also.
Who says the second connection to the video card has "loss of quality"?
