Mouse behavior with multiple displays.

Right now I have 3 displays sitting side by side. The only way that I know to move the mouse from one to the other is by moving the mouse horizontally from one display to the other. But what if I stacked my displays?

Lets say I got a 4th display and stacked them by 2's. Is there a way to get those 4 displays to act as one large display in the sense that I could move the mouse horizontally and vertically to get the cursor to where I want it to be?

Thanks.

You can set that up in the Vista display properties... The monitors in that tab can be dragged anywhere you wish... I only got 2 screens, 1 and 3, but you can see I moved 2 and 4 above them.


Now the 1 hugh screen, with 1 large wall paper, i'm unsure off...

WOW. Didnt even know you could do that. Well,... I only have 3 monitors right now. I will try that though and see what happens. With the 3 screens I have now side by side,... I tried to get my main screen in the middle and have the 2 aux screens on each side ofhe main. I couldnt figure out how to get the cursor to move onto the screen to the left without having to move the cursor aaaaallll the way to the right.
