Support both crossover sides for extended display setup (2 monitors)

In Windows 10 Home, I have a monitor connected and physically oriented to the left side of my laptop.  I have it set up so that if I go to the left edge of my laptop display the mouse will go onto the extended display to my left.  This works great and I have no complaint.

I was wondering if there is a way to have a mouse crossover on the right side of my laptop monitor be supported in addition to the left hand side crossover (which is already working).

This way it would not matter which edge I use to crossover to the second monitor.

crossover any edge

What is the GPU of your notebook? How do you connect the secondary monitor for now and your proposed new setup?

I used this functionality (Cursor Wraparound) with InputDirectort but with a slave computer. You can check if this functionality works without a slave computer

@Jackie Man:

I described my setup in my original post above.  What is your question?

GPU?  It is a AMD Radeon I believe.

As far as physical setup, right now I just connect like this to my extended display:

laptop + HDMI to VGA + VGA cable + second monitor

@Shaun Vermaak:

Yep, I have been running Input Director and it works with a old laptop between the laptop in question and the extended display.  But I am not sure about what happens with just my newer laptop and the extended display.  Technically it is the "same computer" on either display, right?

Input Director does some impressive slight of hand to allow cross over between the 3 displays.  But it also freezes a lot.  And it is not a TRUE extended display (the older laptop).  I cannot drag windows onto it or off of it.  All I can do is move the mouse over to it.  It knows nothing of the other laptop.  It does keep information from the clipboard across the laptops, which was cool.  :  )

what I understand you need to make you left side monitor as primary monitor and do crossover to right.

you would require to make left side as primary in display properties.

after extending you display making digital one as primary.
