    How to switch sides of external monitor hooked up to MacBook
    I have an external monitor that lets the cursor go to my macbook through the left side of the screen. How can I switch it so it goes through the right side?

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    System Preferences - Displays - Arrangement tab - change the position of the two monitors.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thank you
    Thank you very much for solution to this. I setup mu ipad 2 as a 2nd display for working with final cut on the road and I needed to switch the external monitor to the opposite side so I could have my browser and effects panels in the ipad.

    I registered for this forum just to say thanks but obviously a great forum so I'll stick around.

    Thanks again,
