I have two monitors on my Windows 10 PC - monitor 1 (on the right) is a 32" set to 1920x1080 resolution and a monitor 2 (on the left) is a 17" set to 1280x1024 resolution. I have extended the desktop over both monitors with the right-hand one (monitor 1) being the main monitor that has the desktop icons on it, stacked vertically along the left-hand edge of the desktop. This all works beautifully except that after waking my PC from sleep mode, my icons always move to part-way across monitor 2 (about 2 thirds from the left) and I have to move them back manually.
I've tried every sort of configuration I can think of to prevent this but nothing works. This aggravates me in the extreme as I always have windows open covering every inch of my extended desktop apart from the bit where the icons normally reside so I have to keep minimising things so I can move them back, otherwise I can't get to them in a hurry (if a customer calls with an emergency).
I'm thinking that maybe on waking, the PC sees monitor 2 before monitor 1 and gets confused as to which is the primary monitor but if that really were the case, I'd expect the icons to be positioned on the left of monitor 2, not just hanging around in the middle somewhere.
Has anybody else seen this and perhaps solved it?
