    Mouse gets stuck trying to move between monitors

    Hi. I have an annoying problem. When I move from my secondary LCD to the primary, sometimes the mouse won't cross the threshold unless I move it fast. I read about mouse monitor escape speed from this thread, but after adding the reg key to the control panel/desktop and the edgeui, I still have no luck.

    I noticed the thread was old. Is this something where those fixes no longer work in the latest and greatest version of Win10? If so, is there a way to stop it from sticking? Thanks!

    I know it sounds funny BUT if you bring up your display settings and re-arrange your graphic display of the monitors with your mouse (move them closer together and hit Apply) this sticky mouse issue will go away. Even if they are an extra pixel apart it may cause the mouse to stick.

    Worked for me -
