In my case the attribution of screens is the other way around, the external
monitor, has been automatically afaik, assigned as primary.
It seems legit since I never use the laptop screen. Laptop monitor is TN
1366x768, external monitor is 4K, IPS.
In any case I won't try high risk experiment consisting in unplugging external
monitor, or changing primary attribute.
The prospect of having to spend hours to fix it is way too scary.

My keyboard must be very very old because it doesn't have a windows key, viz
no meta key neither. I do and have done Alt + F1 from day one. I've assigned
Alt+F11 to overview.
Generally Kwin/Wayland experience is the most awesome.
