    kind of a trivial question: the Macbook sits next to the standalone monitor (a Samsung 2333SW), and they seem to work well together, but the system assumes that the Mac screen is to the *left* of the Monitor. So when you move the cursor to the right, it moves seamlessly from the Mac screen to the monitor screen. But what if you want to position the Mac to the *right* of the Monitor? It gets confusing in that event. There must be a way to let the system know that it's now located to the right of the monitor. Anyone know how?

    You can change that under preference, display. Just drag the monitors around to match your setup.

    Also, you can change which screen has your dock/menu. Just look at the pictures of your monitors is your system preferences. There should be a symbolic illustration of the menubar on one of the "screens"...just drag the menubar to the other screen. I thought I'd throw that out there because I never realized it until someone showed me lol.
