Default Dual Monitor... Side Flop?

I used nView to setup my dual monitors... and everything is fine except that my secondary monitor is to the left (side on the right is occupied by stuff on the curve of a desk) and nView seems to resort to moving the mouse right to access the second monitor... how do I change that?

Btw... i didn't' know where to post this, so it can be moved by a moderator or admin as they see fit

It's fine here.

Use UltraMon you can do anything with that but you might also want to check under the display properties in the options for the desktop you should be able to do something there.

why not just flip the monitors, or make it so the primary is on the left

eh, my primary is my good monitor (19" LCD) while my secondary is a fat CRT... If I put the LCD on the left, it'll have to be turned towards me and I don't want to look sideways at a screen for my primary.

I just play videos or chat on my left screen.

edit:

Chad, thanks for the ultramon idea, works great and has some nice extra features

Not a problem, works nice an you can set different back grounds per monitor, stretch the task bar across the 2 screens ect.
