How Do I Change Default Action When Connecting an Additional Monitor?

Everything works on this laptop. It’s great. I’ve been using Manjaro on it for years. But for the life of me, this drives me absolutely crazy. I connect different displays to my laptop all the time. Sometimes 2. And never, ever, not once, have I wanted to mirror the display. This has just driven me nuts. If this is a setting someplace, I can’t find it. I want the default action to be to extend the displays.
Every distribution of Linux, Windows, and MacOS do the same thing. It drives me crazy.
Please, HELP! Give me some sanity.

Not that I know, but you can set profiles for each screen. So if you reconnect the montor, it will load the profile.
