Hi experts, since I'm working from home with a remote desktop system, whenever the internet connection drops out, the computer arranges the monitors in the wrong way and I have to manually rearrange them in the correct order using 'Display' settings. It's a limitation of the PC-over-IP box I've got from my employer, so no help switching the monitor cables around. Is there a powershell command to rearrange the displays? Thanks Wim Schalley
