Windows 10 display layout not remembered between shutdowns

    I have a 2019 16" MBP with parallels 16 pro edition, and Windows 10 with all latest updates.
    My monitors are in a side by side configuration, and are laid out as such in MacOS Big Sur.
    On Win10 the monitors default to an 'above / below' configuration, and thus the mouse does not move properly between them when managed by windows, but does when managed by parallels.
    This leads to highly inconsistent behaviour, as in some cases windows seems to manage the mouse, and in others, parallels does.

    When changing layout to be 'side by side' in windows all is fine - until the next reboot, at which point windows reverts to the over/under layout.

    How can I configure parallels to leave the display layout alone, or to copy the MacOS one?
