T420 external monitor - left side

2012-10-26, 15:50 PM

I have a T420 and everything appears to be working correctly.  When I attach an external monitor, I can select either to duplicate the laptop, or extend and have two screens (one on the laptop and one on the external monitor).  I prefer to extend the screen.  When I drag something from the laptop monitor to the right off of the laptop screen, it appears on the external monitor.  I simply want to know if I can change that since my external monitor is physically to the left of my laptop.  I want to be able to move items from the laptop screen to the left and have them appear on the external monitor.  Anyone aware of a setting or a way to change this?

 

I do not use a dock and I attach the external monitor using the monitor connector on the left side of the laptop.

 

Thanks

Solved! See the solution

Hey

Go to intel Graphics and Media Control Panel => Multiple Displays

There you see both your integrated and external monitor in a box to the right. Put/drag them as you prefer and clik OK. Hope it makes sense
