Windows 10: Window focus changes when working on multiple monitors.

  1.    31 Dec 2015 #1

    Window focus changes when working on multiple monitors.

    I'm having some problems after my Windows upgrade from 7 to 10, and I'm hoping someone here can point me in the correct direction.

    Basically, I'm working on a multiple monitor system. When I move my mouse around the screen, windows changes the focus from the window that I'm working in (a spreadsheet for example), and starts entering data in any window i mouse-over.

    I found a partial solution in the following thread.....but this only disables the window popping-up (the focus still changes).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    My system has 2 monitors and I have never experienced this problem. Perhaps you have a custom mouse driver than needs fixing.

    Maybe, as many driver issues as I've had...but it's just a generic USB Mouse...nothing special about it.

    Never had a problem under Windows 7.
