Bug Description

Laptop has internal panel
External display connected via displayport.

External monitor is above my laptop screen (it's physically positioned on a book further back on the same desk) so not side-by-side.

I want to adjust my laptop display brightness so I use the brightness controls on the laptop itself.

The notification that the brightness has changed appears on the external monitor (which I am not adjusting the brightness of) instead of the laptop I am currently adjusting the brightness of, and am looking at. (first screenshot)

Note that if I slide my external screen to the side slightly in display properties, the notification appears in the laptop instead. (second screenshot)

-------------------------------------
Desired Resolution:

- Brightness notifications should only every appear on the monitor whose brightness is currently being changed.
