Can you choose your primary monitor?


New Member
I'm having the issue where nearly every time I start my computer display 1 changes from one monitor to another. So when recording display capture I need to keep editing which screen to stream. So my question, is there a way to select your (Primary Monitor) instead because my (Primary Monitor) is always the correct screen?

Unfortunately there is not. OBS runs off the monitor numbers assigned by Windows, and capture is determined by monitor number.
It'd probably be better to figure out why Windows is changing the monitor numbers, and address the root of the problem itself.
