Dual Monitors

I have 2 monitors. My main one is to my right and the other is to my left. I have to drag to my right inorder to go to the monitor on my left. I want to drag to the left where my second monitor is at? I don't seem to be able to do this can anyone help?

Right click an open spot on the desktop and select Resolution. Where it shows the monitors listed as 1 and 2, just drag the one you want to be on the left.

You're welcome.

That is one of those things that has to be done manually if you don't happen to have the monitors in whichever order Windows decides is the default. Neither Windows nor the video card drivers know where the monitors are (left-right, right-left, one on top of the other, etc) , just that there is 2 (or more) monitors connected.
