My desktop icons are always moved to the second screen

New Contributor

Good morning, everyone,

I recently upgraded my personal computer to windows 11, I use two screens and despite that I have changed the main screen several times to the one I need. My desktop icons switch to the secondary screen every time I restart my computer.


Is there any way to change this setting? It is as if the system is not correctly detecting the main screen as the primary screen. Is there a registry key that will change this?
