    Problem moving the cursor between monitors after replacing one of two monitors.


    After replacing one of two monitors, the cursor wouldn't move correctly between monitors. One of the other threads on this topic was helpful, but it took me awhile to fully understand the suggested solution. Below is what I did to fix my problem. If you have the same issue, I hope this helps.


    The problem turned out to be my computer display settings showed the new monitor was to the right of the existing one when it was actually on the left. (The new one has an LED display, so I wanted it to be the primary.)


    I could move between monitors by moving to the left on the new monitor screen and to the right on the existing one. Here's what I did below:


    Right click on either monitor screen.


    In the popup window, select "Display Settings"


    In Display Settings scroll down to "Multiple displays" and select "Extend these displays"


    At the top of the "Display" window, grab one of the displays with the cursor and move it to change the left to right order, then click "Apply"


    Now the monitors are in the same order in the "Display Settings" as they are in front of you. That should allow the cursor to move between the monitors.


    I only use two monitors, but I'm sure this same concept works with more than two.

    :)

  2. Dual monitors

    Dual monitors

    I have Two monitors, my laptop is in front of me, the second is to the left of the laptop. the problem I have is that when I want to move the cursor to the left monitor screen, it stops at the left side of the laptop monitor and won't go further, but when
    I move the cursor to the right side of the laptop, it moves past the right side of the screen and appears on to the left monitor screen. this is obviously opposite of the direction I need the cursor to moving and is frustrating as times. I need a suggestion
    to solve this dilemma. I don't see a solution in the manual. Thank You

    Moving cursor between two monitors

    I have a monitor connected to my lap top in order to have two screens available. Cannot figure out how to move the cursor from one screen to the other.
