I am perfectly able to set primary monitor via Nvidia X Server Settings or displays settings. It works just fine for the most of my needs.

Except for one. System ignores these settings when I want to save a file to my desktop. It always saves new files to my left hand side desktop, although my primary monitor is on my right hand side.

This is very annoying since I want to use my left display only for browser window, which I always keep open while on the right desktop I do all my other stuff like programming, browsing files, writing documents etc..

So how can I set my primary desktop to the same value as my primary display?

EDIT: I have tried to switch the cables, displays but either one doesn't solve the problem. System always use left hand side desktop as a primary.
