Well, it kind of makes sense to have the monitors next to each other.
Multiple monitor configurations are supported natively by Windows, and you
have two choices: you can treat the two monitors as a single extra-wide
monitor, or have a primary and secondary monitors (which is probably what
you want).

In this configuration, your taskbar and icons reside on the primary monitor
(unless you move them).

Display Properties lets you align the monitors so that the cursor doesn't
"jump" while crossing the boundary.
