When I had two - The secondary was on the right, and I set up the taskbar and widgets so they were vertical, on either side of the border between the two.

And it looks alien when the start button is in the middle because you're used to reading left to right.


In addition to this, I prefer my laptop on the left, because when I hook it up to my 24" I'm still reading left to right.


Scratch that. I have a HAS monitor. I can actually stick it above my laptop screen. Its... amazing

What if you had only 1 monitor and it was to your left, would it then not make since to put the second monitor to the right of the first?
