I'm not exactly sure what you are wanting to do. Did you want to know if there is a way to keep moving the window off of the left side of the left monitor and have it appear on the right side of the right monitor?
If that's not what you want, then let us know. If that is what you want to do, I don't think there's any simple way to do so, but it would be a neat feature.

Here is what I would like to do ( example Terminal is open on the main right monitor and would like to move it to the left monitor currently I must click and hold and move it right and it will show up on the left, Is there a way to click and hold and move this to the left and it will show on left monitor, the only way I can move the mouse pointer to the left monitor is to go off the right monitor moving the the right and it will then show on the left) I hope this makes sense

I have gotten the problem resolved. In monitors you just have to drag the monitor that is red in color to the right in monitor preferences then you can move anything you like from right to left and back again.

Sounds to me like you just had the monitors swapped, how about just unplugging the cables and swapping them back? :wink:
