Getting my mouse to move left to other monitor.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 590-p0057na Product number: 8CG9208KFP 6RU46EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've just added another monitor as I'm starting 'Match Betting' and it saves a lot of time. My main screen wouldn't operate when I connected up the second monitor because the first screen was using an HDMI cable and the second screen was using a 'VGA' cable. It worked after I swapped the cables over. But now my mouse will only go from the main screen right to the second screen. Which is a bit confusing the main screen is in front of me (or just a little to the right.


I could swap them over but I'm comfortable with the main screen where it is and has been for the past 15yrs.


Can I get the mouse to go the other way, from the left side of the screen and show from the right on the second monitor?


I've tried swapping the screens in settings without any change, it doesn't matter where I place the screens there, the mouse still goes off the main screen from the right and not the left.


Would anyone tell me how to change the mouse direction?


Thank a lot

I don't like to answer my own posts but I have now figured out how to make the mouse travel from left to right across two monitors.


Just right click on the screen of the main monitor and go to 'Display Settings'. Identify the two monitors (1 + 2) and just move 1 in front of 2 and then click the apply button.


Now the mouse will travel from your main screen over to your second screen left and appear from the right.
