Anyone know how to calibrate the offset between two monitors?

    Hey everyone,

    We have a dual screen set up at work and one monitor differs in what is displayed. Instead of there being a straight motion when moving from each display , the mouse and windows seem to jump an inch or two. Has anyone figured out a way to fix this? Thanks for any Help :)

    Are the screens identical in size & resolution? If not, you're going to have some offset, unavoidable.

    If they are identical but one is simply set higher than the other (eg an iMac
    27" next to a TBD) then in system preferences you can drag the preview of the lower monitor down using trial & error until the halves line up.

    In System Preferences > Displays, you can physically move the position of the two monitors by dragging the smaller one up/down. I believe that adjusts it.
