When you setup dual monitors, to move a windows to a different display (monitor), you move it sideways (right or left). Is it possible to change the behavior to move the window by moving vertically, i.e. up or down.

I have two monitors setup in a special case above each other (instead or side by side). I want to make it easier by dragging windows up and down instead of sideways since it happens to be confusing.

I am using Windows 8.1



In the windows control pannel "Display", go to the resolution section

With the mouse Click on and drag the visual represenation of the monitors, into the desired configuration.

  • So... what did you do? I was under the impression you could just drag them into position. – Journeyman Geek Dec 25 '14 at 23:35
  • @JourneymanGeek : I wasn't aware of that initially. :( Later I figured it out that I could drag them. – Anupam Dec 26 '14 at 2:08
  • True, that wasn't obvious in your original answer. – Journeyman Geek Dec 26 '14 at 2:16
