I added an additional monitor to a Windows 7 laptop, so that I have 2 screens, Display 1 (laptop screen) and Display 2 (additional monitor). On my desk, the additional monitor has to sit to the left of the laptop. Therefore I would like to be able to move my cursor out of the left side of Display 1 and have it appear on the right side of Display 2. The default setup only permits the cursor to leave the right side of Display 1 and appear on the left side of Display 2, which is frying my brain. What settings allow the cursor to exit the left side of Display 1 and enter the right side of Display 2?

Right-click on the desktop, choose Screen Resolution option, rearrange monitors in the display.

Go to the picture and select the monitor you want on the left. Move it to the left of the other monitor and hit apply.
