  1. Moving from left to right monitor directly, with a small laptop screen in the middle


    My computer configuration at work has my laptop in between two monitors; it's optimal for ergonomic and other reasons. The problem is the laptop rests lower than the bulk of the external monitors.


    To move the mouse from the leftmost to the rightmost monitor currently requires me to make a "smile-shaped" swooping motion (the red arrow below), which is a pain in the neck -- I always seem to "snag" on the transition to or from the laptop monitor, even though the "geography" of the monitors is set up perfectly in Display Settings.

    I'd like to be able to slide the mouse pointer "over" the middle laptop monitor, directly from Monitor 3 to Monitor 2 (the green arrow below).

    Is there any way to set that up?

  2. application windows exceed past edge of monitor when moved to the left or right

    no I have three monitors running.

    monitor 1 to the left when you move a window over say browser window it can be moved way over to the left to the point is is almost missing.

    Monitor 2 in the middle you can move left or right to each monitor. If I drag the window to the top so that it expands full screen it does so correctly.

    Monitor 3 to the right is the same as monitor 1 but the window drags off to the right side

  3. Small Duplicate Screen at top left corner of monitor

    Hi,

    There could be some reasons why you are getting a small screen at the top left corner of your monitor. To provide a better assistance, we would like to know a few information:

    • Are you using a screen recorder app on your PC?
    • Have you made any recent changes on your device prior to this concern?
    • When did this issue begin?

    We'll wait for your response.

  4. Moving from left to right monitor directly, with a small laptop screen in the middle

    Monitor screen size

    I have a 4K laptop, with two 1080p monitors attached to it.

    In the display settings, I have the laptop on the left, and the 2 monitors to the right. So basically I move the mouse from left to right to go from the laptop, to the first monitor, to the second monitor.

    All good. Except the display settings show the laptop screen as twice the size of the monitors. This is true when based on resolution, but not on actual size (15" compared with 21" for the monitors).

    So at the minute I have the monitor right in the middle vertically of the laptop screen on display properties. What this means is that I can only move the mouse from the laptop to the monitor where the display properties show the monitor is placed compared
    to the laptop screen. So I cannot move the mouse when on the top or bottom section of the laptop screen, only in the middle section.

    I can see that I can move the laptop screen in display properties, so the top half of the screen is covered by the monitor, but then the lower half will not allow the mouse to move to the monitor from the laptop.

    Apart from lowering the laptop resolution to 1080p, which I'd rather not, then is there a way to make it automatically move to the highest/lowest point on the monitor, even if the mouse moves off the laptop screen higher/lower than where the monitor is placed
    in display properties? Basically a method to basically fake the size of a screen just for this one bit of functionality. Ideally it would be great to be able to resize the screen in display properties to whatever you wish, so regardless of resolution you can
    map perfectly with your actual screen size.
