Windows 7: Renumber windows monitor identities

Renumber windows monitor identities

This place has helped me so much via Google search, I had to join up.

I have a Virtual Pinball that I use as a normal PC as well. I know all about Windows+P and extending/duplicating screens. What I want to do is renumber my monitors (Monitor 1, monitor 2, etc). Right now screen 3 is primary, but I want it as screen 1. I have even gone as far as swapping and re running all my cables, and windows mixed it up even more.

I'm no stranger to editing the registry if that's what I need to do.

Merry Christmas all!!

TV Identities
Here in the UK, until fairly recently, many of the independent (ITV) television programmes made regionally as opposed to nationally had their own creating company logo (or ident) shown at the beginning.
