Trying to set Monitor 2 as Monitor 1, or get all windows to pop up on Monitor 2
I am trying to figure out how to get all these windows to pop up on monitor 2. I set the option in nvidia control panel to pop up all windows on monitor 2 and set monitor 2 as primary. The main problem is that windows will pop up on monitor 2 but things like errors and windows installation will pop up on monitor 1.
Anyone know a way to fix this?
Monitor 1 is hooked up via VGA
Monitor 2 is hooked up via DVI
So theres no way to swap those two cables around.I5 2500K @ 4.5ghz 1v idle 1.32v load | P8P67 Pro | MSI 7950 | 32GB Ripjaws | MCR320+RX120+MCP355+Apogee XT

Right click desktop
click the number 2 screen
check the box that says e this deviceas primary monitor"
Also if you want pops up to occur on your NON primiary monitor just drag the window over to the second monitor then close it.. .next time it opens it opens in the 2nd monitor
But you need to do the "primary" if you want games to run on your DVI monitor

I have monitor 2 setup as the primary and the 1st monitor set as extended.
So currently everything should pop up on monitor 2, but errors and some popups will appear on the left monitor. Makes it a hassle to go back and forth when installing software and messing with many programs. Of course I use 2 monitors for certain programs that makes it easier to work with.I5 2500K @ 4.5ghz 1v idle 1.32v load | P8P67 Pro | MSI 7950 | 32GB Ripjaws | MCR320+RX120+MCP355+Apogee XT

Only thing I can think of then is an app like ultraMON
