I have a laptop with external monitor, with option: "Extend these displays". I have my laptop on the left, physically. Therefore I would like to drag windows from big monitor to the left. However, in "Multiple display settings" my laptop screen appears on the right side. How can I change the order so, that my laptop screen would be first?

UPDATE: OS: Windows 7

Right click your desktop and select Screen resolution.

Drag the screen images to the position you want (the images with numbers on them) and then click Apply.
