    2 Displays - can 1 be portrait?

    I'm a complete Win 10 novice. But it seems I must choose Portrait or Landscape in Display Properties box before going to advanced settings. I.e., both screens must be Landscape or Portrait. Say it ain't so!

    Thanks!

    FYI - I am starting m new life - No more XP! I am writing this under Windows 10 on a new build (i5-6500 w/ MSI GTX950). I plan to try gaming. My main display is an Insignia 22" 1880x1050, the second is an HP LP1965 1280x1024. I really like the HP in portrait mode.

    SOLVED - I found an NVidia panel that allowed me to accomplish my goal.

    Right click on desktop, and choose display settings. Then click on whichever monitor you want to make portrait. From the drop down menu select portrait, and click apply.

    For what it is worth, I have four monitors on two nVidia graphics cards: three are landscape and one portrait (a little 17" monitor twisted 90 degrees, used as my icon farm).
