[dba-Tech] [dba-OT] Screens Flipped

Perhaps turning the monitor 'jiggled' the cable connection a little - which was enough for the newly updated W10 to 'relearn' which monitor was actually where and how they should be.  And they should have been where they were to start with!  :-)

Thanks for the idea. I tried to do that. One display is HDMI and one is VGA.  I wasn't sure if the HDMI display had a VGA jack as well.  So I started to turn it around to see.  As I did the comp made a sound that indicated a device was unplugged. Then, the displays righted themselves. 

WTF??!!  Now I have no idea what caused it OR what fixed it.  :-|

But if it ain't broke...

Easy way is to switch the cables.  ;-)

And to get the mouse from the right display to the left display I had to move it to the right off the right hand display and then it re-appeared on the left side of the left hand display.
