Windows 10 - Dual Monitors - cannot move Mouse to right hand monitor

Hi Experts,

I am running Windows 10 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 tablet.
I have a Surface Dock with Dual Monitors.
I'm getting images on both monitors - but my Mouse is constrained within the left hand monitor, so I cannot use the mouse on the right hand monitor.

Regards,
Leigh

But after reading your comment, I discovered that I could move the mouse freely between screens - without changing any settings.

Fixed using psychic powers
lol  ;-)

Try going to the opposite side of the screen (both left and right) and see if you can move your mouse onto the other monitor. I think this will be an issue with the way you've setup your dual monitors in Windows 10. Ensure multiple displays has been set to "Extend" or similar.  I don't have dual monitors setup on Windows 10 at the moment to test.

Have you checked if the monitors are flipped flopped.
Left is right and right is left.

Thanks, Andrew.

I had earlier tried going to the opposite side of the screen (both left and right) to no avail.

But after reading your comment, I discovered that I could move the mouse freely between screens - without changing any settings.

I'll see how things go in the next day or two...

Thanks Andrew,

Not sure - were the psychic powers yours, mine, or somebody elses?

Cheers
