Steam Link keeps going to 2nd monitor

I run Steam Link and when it opens initially, it appears on my primary screen but when I then hit Start Playing, it will open on my secondary screen.

This is my display setting:

The problem with steam link, when it opens, it is full screen so I can't drag it across.

I tried both Wayland and the standard display.

Is there anyway to make it switch displays or when it opens, keep it to the primary display?


This may be an issue with Steam, rather than the Xwindow system or Wayland. I am not 100% sure on that.
But, you can read this users experience and their workaround here:

Thanks for the reply.

I think they are talking about the Steam Client running natively. I'm using Steam Link which is essentially a remote desktop to the steam client that I have running on another puter.

I hadn't tried it on this computer for a while and I'm pretty sure it was working previously.

Primary Display is hdmi, Secondary display is Display Port.

I just tried unplugging the Display Port, ran Steam Link so was open on my Primary/HDMI and then when I plugged the second display back in, it immediately flicked back over to the second display.

Are there any key commands which move the windows between displays?

I do not know of any... I play Few Steam Games in general and fewer still that Auto-Fullscreen.
