Hi!

I'm running dual monitors with extended display. Left is Display 1, right is Display 2. Display 2 is currently listed as "make this my main display." All works well and as expected/intended. However, I am looking at Display 1 more often and want all things to pop-up on Display 1. As soon as I make Display 1 "my main display" any scrolling I do on Display 2 controls the volume/media for the system instead of scrolling pages (to scroll I have to click on the scroll bars and drag up/down/left/right). When I switch back (display 2 main display), scrolling resumes as normal for both monitors again.

I'm looking to make Display 1 the main monitor while being able to scroll pages as normal on Display 2.

Am I missing something? Or is it dependent on something else? Both are LG monitors.

Thank you for the help!

OK, these are not touch screen... I had a somewhat different issue where both my monitors are touchscreen but when I was using one, it will perform the touch on the other screen...

Does the audio come from these monitors? have you tried removing Display2 from the computer to see if it continues with just display1?

I have seen software listed that can perform this task but you would need to hold down another key.

No audio from the monitors; I have external speakers directly to the tower. I will try the full-on removal after work, however, using the settings and switching to "Display 1 Only" and "Display 2 Only" makes the scrolling feature work as intended on both.

I will do the full removal and follow up later today. Thank you!
