Windows 7: Reverse dragging direction: dual monitors

Reverse dragging direction: dual monitors

XP and Vista were simple to reverse, but I cannot find the settings in Win 7. I am constantly moving screens between monitors, but instead of dragging them "from one monitor" to "the other" in a straight motion, I have to drag in the opposite direction, away from the second monitor, to have it appear there.

Okay, petty I know, but it drives me nuts!

Anyone know where the setting is located?

Right click on the desktop...
Click on Screen Resolution...
You should see your two monitors...swap them left/right with a click and drag...

Hope that makes sense...

LOL, just open the display properties and drag the monitors around to the way you want them.

There is one more way, but that requires you to do manual labor. Swap your connections on the video card. Just in case.
