cursor between these monitors, for example, if I take my mouse cursor and move it off the screen, I want it to show up over here on monitor two at roughly the same point where it left monitor one. For example, if the mouse cursor leaves monitor one, right down here, I want it to appear on monitor two in roughly the same location so it tracks a straight line across between the two. Now in this current configuration, it's actually not doing that because monitor one is being displayedtoo high. So when my mouse cursor leaves, it actually displays too high over here on monitor two. To fix this, what we can do is click and drag the monitors and arrange them to match the way they are physically oriented on my work bench. So in this situation, I actually need to move monitor one down.Now, when I move my mouse cursor off of the screen, it shows up in the right place on monitor two,which of course you can't see right now. And actually, I got it just a little off. I need to put it right about there. When I do that, everything works perfectly. Now to make these changes stick, I need to come over here and click the apply button. And now I have my dual monitor setup configured and working properly. So on Windows 10, that is one way that you can configure your display settings. Using Control Panel 7:42-10:01

Now in older versions of Windows, you may not have the Settings app where you can do that.Instead, you're going to have to do these same tasks in Control Panel. And on Windows 10, you can still do it in Control Panel as well. To do this, you launch Control Panel and then you come over to Appearance and Personalization, and then click on Display. And then click on Change Display Settings. Now notice that the same information we were looking at in the Settings app is displayed here as wellin Control Panel. For example, I can click on identify. And when I do, I see the number one displayedon this monitor, and the number two is displayed on the other monitor. I can select which display I'm currently configuring. Right now, the settings displayed here are for monitor number one. If I click on monitor number two in the display list, then the settings are applied to monitor number two. And for each of these, I can select the appropriate resolution, I can select the orientation, landscape or portrait, and I can decide whether I want to duplicate the display or extend the displays between monitors. Now there is one other option that was not available in the Settings app, and that's this one right here, make this my main display. Right now, we're assuming that monitor one on the left is my main monitor. But what if it really isn't? What if it's actually monitor two that's my main monitor? In fact, what if monitor one is not actually on the left side of monitor two, but monitor one is on the right side of monitor two? To fix this, I can click and drag monitor one over to the right side of monitor two, and then I can click on monitor two and say make this my main display. Hit apply. Now when I did that, my monitors essentially flipped. Monitor one is now my secondary monitor, and that's the one that I'm currently working on right

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
