    mouse hover over chrome window does not activate post screen resume

    Win 10 pro ver 2004 build 19041.804
    Lenovo X260

    After screen has turned off then awoken by moving mouse, the chrome and edge browser screens do not become active just by hovering the mouse and moving the scroll wheel (or trackpoint)

    It is necessary to either click on the tab at the top or else on the toolbar at the bottom.

    I have the exact same build on a desktop which does not have that problem.

    Steps tried already:
    Graphics driver check, intel HD 520 up to date, nothing to roll back to
    Mouse driver - ditto
    indexing service - refreshed
    Unused apps stopped - adobe, groove, xbox
    disk clean run
    cclean run
    Mouse setting -'scroll inactive window' is set
    DCOM error 10016 in windows log dealt with - deleted the 3 reg keys as listed in various forums.
    full virus scan with defender on and offline

    Any other ideas please?

    Hi, if you wish to have a window activated by hovering, try the bottom setting:

    Thanks for your reply, I tried that one yesterday afternoon, unfortunately it made no difference. I'm starting to wonder if it is something particular to my Lenovo, as unlike my desktop (which has the exact same build of Windows), the Lenovo receives its own firmware updates periodically.

    The salient aspect of this issue on the X260 is that the hover and scroll feature does not work immediately after waking up the screen.
    After the tab key or taskbar have been clicked, then the hover and scroll feature comes back to life and left clicks within the main pane do work.

    New question, unresponsive screen upon awakening

    I may ask a different question, when the screen wakes up after power saving, it is unresponsive for a minute. After clicking around the edge it comes back to life. Can anyone help please?
