Desktop moves to second monitor when a game is in fullscreen.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i am running a dual monitor display. My main monitor is a 4K IPS LG monitor, and the second monitor is a 1080P BenQ TN monitor. They work fine, but everytime i try to run a game on the main monitor with the monitor set to its native resolution on windows, My main desktop moves from the main monitor to the second one. All of the Desktop icons, Cortana search bar, and apps running on the main monitor, bar the game, move to the second monitor. Doesn't matter if the monitor is set to 4K or 1440p. It works fine with both running in 1080p, but i would like to run the main monitor at 4k so that i can watch 4K content on Youtube and other services. I'll leave two images to help get a better understanding of what my issue is. If anyone knows about what's causing this issue or have had this issue before, please let me know.
