    Dual Screen Problem, Mouse not moving over.

    Hello I'm using windows 8.1, 2 Screens detected and using the feature extend, however when I slide my mouse to the right it will not move to the next screen like it did on Windows 7, instead it opens the menu (the Windows+C menu).

    Move it the other way and see if it pops around. If it does your monitors are reversed as far as Windows is concerned. Go to Control panel > Display > Screen resolution. Click detect and see if the numbers on your display match what's shown. If they don't drag one screen to the other side so they do.
