Set the Position of Multiple Monitors with Windows 10

Bought a second monitor and can't get you mouse to go across the middle of the screen. No worries there is a quick and easy fix for that. Microsoft has decided to modernize Windows and allow us to take control of our displays without having to rely on cumbersome display adapter software.

Relocate your Monitor Virtually

Select the monitor you want to reposition in this case it will be monitor 2 left of monitor 1 or in front of monitor 1. This will allow your mouse to cross the middle of the screen.

Click Apply

After repositioning your monitors click Apply. The Main display is the dark blue gray monitor. The next step will demonstrate how to select monitor 2 as the Main monitor.

Set Primary Display

After rearranging your monitors the primary display will need to be set. The primary display is the monitor that has the notifications and time in the lower right. This is dependant on the position of your start menu location as well.

After that your cursor should move about the middle of the screens and the Start button should be on the screen of your choosing.
