im tired of switching to DP port on my dual monitor setup constantly

I have nvidia GeForce gtx 1050ti 4gb with DVI, displayport,2 hdmi

and it keeps trying to switch to HDMI as main display every time I try to change settings for my dual monitor

I don't understand why it keeps doing it. very stupid.

it also defaults my sound output through hdmi every time.
I already disabled the hdmi sound output in audio panel and nvidia panel and it still does it

Maybe do a clean install on the driver. Also, have you gone into the nvidia control panel specifically and made it your main monitor?

You listed the card but not how things are setup. I am guessing you have one monitor on HDMI and second on display port.
To set the main monitor you go into the Windows video options and select which monitor you want for the main screen. Save the settings and make sure you shut down Windows properly or it won't save. Next time you turn it on, Windows should remember the default monitor. Are you saying it does not?
