Windows 7: Multi Monitor Question

Multi Monitor Question

Hey all...I have 3 monitors and I'm trying to set them up with ATI's eyefinity.

My problem is that Windows 7 assigns my monitors as 2 3 1 (As opposed to 1 2 3)

How to I reassign the monitor identifiers? I've been searching the net and the only responses I've seen are to check the box under monitor 2 as the primary monitor or to physically move them. Neither of these options are going to help me.

So does anyone know where Windows 7 keeps the settings for monitor identifiers, and which flags I can modify?

you can "drag-and-drop" the monitor configuration within catalyst. click on one and hold the mouse button, then move the monitor to where you see fit.

You can also drag and drop within windows; control panel > display > change display settings. Simply drag the image of each monitor to its desired order.
