PATTERN PLACEMENT in a SHAPE

I currently use illustrator on my laptop and my iMac. On my iMac, when I move a shape (from right to left for example) with a pattern inside, the pattern doesn't change, it is places exactly the same way, so I can control the placement of the pattern. On my laptop the pattern changes automatically when I change the place of the shape, to adapt to the placement of the pattern, without the ability to control it. Where is the command for that?

I've moved this from the poorly named Community Help forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Illustrator forum so that proper help can be offered.
