I'm trying to play Fallout 4. It used to work fine on this machine, but have since reformatted and reinstalled.

The issue is, it always appears on my right side monitor (I have 3 monitors).

The center monitor is primary.

I have read Can I tell Steam which monitor to open a game on? and so went into big picture (something I've never needed to do before) and changed to each monitor - regardless of the choice, it always loads on the right hand side monitor (monitor 3)

Starting a different game loads the game on the primary monitor. This issue appears to be only with this game.

What else can I do?

The solution was from the launcher, set the game to start in Windowed mode.

From there, hit alt tab to get the mouse so you can move the game window to the desired screen.

Wait for the main menu and choose to exit.

Start the game, remove windowed mode and it should remember the screen it was last in

  • It should be noted that you need to do this in bordered mode otherwise you don't have a titlebar to grab on to. Also don't forget to accept your own answer!
