How to Make Windows Format Your Multiple Monitors the Right Way

If you have multiple monitors and each is of your monitors is a different height, then it can be extremely frustrating to try and move the mouse pointer between the monitors. In this article I’m going to discuss how you can make this process much smoother and less frustrating for you.
Step number one is aligning the monitors correctly. I’m going to explain first how to do this in Windows 7. The process is slightly different for older versions of Windows, but we’ll get there in a minute, ok? In Windows 7, the easiest way to navigate to the display settings is to simply open the start menu and type ‘display settings’ and hit enter. This is where Windows 7 really does have an advantage over older versions of Windows, and one of the reasons I have no problem recommending people use it. If you’re using Windows Vista (hey guys, time to upgrade- get on the ball!) then just right click your desktop and click ‘Personalize.” Next, from the “Personalize Appearance” menu, click “Display Settings.” In Windows XP (you guys still use this versions of Windows?) right click on your desktop and select “Properties,” then in “Display Properties,” then select the “Settings” tab.

The idea behind tweaking this setting is moving each display to a particular height, making it easier to get the mouse pointer from one screen to the next.
Just as a side note, remember this is the same area where you can change multiple other settings as well, such as moving your monitors around, changing the orientation, and even adjusting the screen resolution. So take note, it’s a good idea to remember how to get back to these settings for future reference.
