Windows 7: How do I change my mouse functions for multiple screens?

How do I change my mouse functions for multiple screens?

I've managed to set up an extra screen, but I can't get the mouse to leave one screen on the side I want. For example my new screen is set up on the left side of my laptop screen. When I move my mouse across the screen to the screen on the left I have to move my mouse to the right to bring it onto the screen instead of just moving it over to the left. It's a small problem, but it's driving me insane. How can I fix this?

Hello cami, and welcome to Sevenforums!

To move the display to correctly position itself according to your layout, RIGHT-click your desktop and click "screen resolution". You should see 2 monitors labeled 1 and 2. Simply click and hold one of the monitors and drag it to the opposite side of the other monitor. Here is what the screen should look like, except that I only have a single monitor where you should have two:

Remember, windows can only guess as to which side of your main monitor that you place your secondary monitor; it is up to you to position it in the correct manner. Just ask if you need more help!
