Dual monitor disaster [Solved/Closed]

 R -

I had dual monitors set up but I lost a monitor. I went to fix the settings back to one monitor, but apparenty I gave the missing monitor primary status. Now I can't login at all, b/c the login isn't showing up on my remaining monitor. I can't access the Start menu or Control Panel to fix this.

Any tips on how to handle this disaster?

I've done dumber stuff, but not lately...

Thanks for any help I can get here.

Pressing "windows" button and "C" does not always work to get to control panel, but pressing the "windows" button and then "R" will bring up the "run box". Then you simply type"control" which will bring up the control panel and you can proceed with "M" + "arrow" to move the window into view as instructed.
