Windows 7: Multiple Monitor Issue- how do I configure up/down?

Multiple Monitor Issue- how do I configure up/down?

I have a laptop and a separate monitor set up above my laptop. It runs fine but the only problem I have is that when I want to go to my 2nd monitor I have to run the mouse out to the right to go to this screen. As the monitor is placed above my laptop screen it would be more natural to run my mouse UP to the screen above rather than to the RIGHT. I don't see a place in the display settings where I can change this. Any ideas?

Hello Eric, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of your Screen Resolution window?

Normally, you should be able to drag the monitor to the position you want and release it to have it snap there.

Brink, thanks for your response. I feel like I tried this and thought it would only allow me to drop the monitor left to right. But per your suggestion I went back and dropped the monitor above the other and bingo, it stacked just like I needed. Thank you.
