So, for those who have multiple monitors set up, which side do you want your desktop extended to, left or right? I personally like the right; seems more natural.

It seems to be that the right side works best for most people.

However, many people that are left-handed prefer it on the left.

Right. If I put a monitor on my left it...would fall to the ground. I have a corner desk and if I extend it I will go right for that obvious reason. But since I am only 14 with NO SOURCE of income, that will be a while. But my 32" tv/monitor will do for now :)

You know... I've ever actually paid attention to it now, but I've always put monitor #2 to the right of the main one. It just seems to be more comfortable having it over there. Weird...

I'm right handed, but I can't stand having my secondary monitor on my right. I have my smaller screen to the left of my main display.

I honestly thought it had something to do with being left/right handed. I guess it's just personal preference.

I put mine to the right, because that's where windows puts it, and i'm lazy to change it.

I personally have 3x24" monitor, so i have left and right, but when i used just 2 i had it on right side, it is more natural since "start" (or "menu" depends on what os you use) is on the left....

I have 2 23" monitors. The main one sits directly in front of me and the extended one sits to the right. I'd like to upgrade my graphics card and have 3 monitors. One on either side of the main. A boy can dream.
