In Windows 8 two monitors can be connected very easily to allow a synchronized display of the same operating system. However, due to the introduction of charms bars and scroll bars in Windows 8, this results in a limitation of the cursor when moving from one screen to another in a multi-monitor system. Because of this restriction, the mouse pointer is suspended over the common edge, which obviously covers the right edge of the first monitor and the left edge of the second monitor.

In fact, pasting the cursor helps to make the two functions introduced in Windows 8 work without problems – the drawing bar and the scroll bar. But for some people, it can be boring and they are looking for a way to fix it.

If your mouse pointer or cursor gets stuck on the edge of the screen as you move between multiple monitors in Windows 8, this message will show you how to solve the problem.
