I am running my laptop to two thunderbolt screens at work with the arrangement (T1-L-T2; i.e laptop (L) in the middle and thunderbolts (T1 and T2) either side), to which I disconnect and take my laptop home when traveling or at the end of each day. However when I return and reconnect them their arrangement becomes (T2-L-T1) and every morning for the past 10 weeks I have been redefining their arrangement. However its becoming tedious. I have even daisy chained them in the opposite configuration to see if that would help but the exact same issue occurs.

Has anyone had/solved/know how to solve this problem?

You've already tried my first idea.

My second suggestion would be to physically relocate the 2 displays into the order that is auto arranged.

Of course, if they are 2 different sizes (and consequently their use in that position), that's probably not what you wanted to hear.

Have not used 2 external displays, so no personal experience.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Don't you hate it when someone has the most obvious of solutions that you were too stupid to think of yourself! Thanks bobtomay!!!

Sometimes it just takes a different set of eyes.

Watch out though, these machines are getting smart nowadays and could be watching you and doing it just to aggravate you.
