Windows 10: new mouse behavior?

    new mouse behavior?

    New default behavior in Windows 10 bs win8 was that I used to be able to scroll an inactive window by hovering my mouse over it. And this was great.

    After thinking something was wrong for a while I've finally realised why my window management is so iffy. I've noticed that the inative window I'm hovering over will now automatically turn into the active window after a few seconds of hovering on it, displacing everything else which overlaps it.

    E.G. File Explorer window positioned partly over firefox. before I could scroll down the inactive FF window with my mouse wheel, but now the FF window automatically becomes the active window, hiding the File Explorer window.

    Is there a fix for this?

    I looked here yesterday when having this issue and it wasn't ticked. Checked it again today and it is ticked. Thanks. Unpicking it again solved this issue.
