    Solved How to turn off mouse hover auto click when over a link on a...


    I discovered after much reading and trials and errors on many things that all of the mouse issues I have struggled with since installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607 that the issue had nothing at all to do with the operating system and turned out to have been caused by the Logitech mouse software titled Setpoint version 6.67.83_64 all along! As soon as I uninstalled this software all my mouse issues went away and have not returned. It was doing crazy things like opening 2 tabs at once when I clicked a link, closing more than one tab when I closed one and sometimes closing the entire web browser. Auto clicking links I just pointed at although the mouse setting was turned off in the Window's Control Panel for it to do that. Anyway, it's fixed now and no more Setpoint Logitech mouse software is on my PC. Soooo thankful I finally discovered the cause because it was driving me nuts! Thanks for your reply triton2007, but that wasn't the cause of my issue. Thankfully I found it though and fixed it by removing the Setpoint mouse software. My very best regards!

    To get to the old style Control Panel in Windows 10, type "Control Panel" into the "Search the web and Windows" box.
    Then click "Ease of Access", then "Ease of Access Center", then "Change how your mouse works" and you will find the setting you are looking for. Un-click the "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse".Click image for larger version.

    So, when I uncheck this option, after every reboot it get re-enabled. Any idea what might be re-enabling this? Not a huge deal but it is a nuisance to deal with after ever reboot. I don't need the hover option to be enabled. Thanks.

    It sounds like the change isn't being written to the registry hive when you shut down.

    Did you actually click 'Apply'?

    Suggest you create a new user just for test purposes and try with that. If it's ok then, there's no basic Windows corruption.
    Might be a registry permission problem, but I'm guessing.

    Try with the same user to change some other setting that will be stored in registry and see if that works- like the one below it. (I think that's 'snap').

    Otherwise the problem needs specific research, unless someone comes along with a good idea...
