Cursor hitting "border" between differently sized monitors

Cursor hitting "border" between differently sized monitors

I'm not sure if I'll be to explain this right. I have a dual monitor display on Windows 7 and my left monitor (laptop) has a lower vertical resolution than the right monitor (regular LCD monitor). So obviously, if I stick these monitors together, there's a part in the upper-left corner of my LCD monitor where cursor cannot go to the other monitor. I remember there was a trick to make this gap disappear, and make it seem like the monitors are of equal height.

"Pretty sure there's no way to make it seamless from the smaller to the larger screen.

If you right click on desktop, choose Personalize, Display Settings, you can drag the smaller screen higher or lower in relation to the bigger screen to determine exactly where you can cross over from one to the other.

I'm not sure if UltraMon has any settings like that.

Edit: I just installed UltraMon beta version. The beta version had a Display Settings panel that does that same thing. You can change the relative position of the monitors to one another in order to control what areas will be blocked/open for crossover."

all you do is go in to the resolution settings and you drag the monitor with the cursor and swop it round.
