    Autofocus window on mouse hover?


    Hi, in Windows 10 is there any way to focus a window if I hover my mouse cursor over it for half a second (or thereabout)? This is what I had enabled on Windows 8.1 and I preferred that setup.

    That is all (nothing below) I tried clicking "other options" as well, but that setting isn't anywhere.

    What I've shown is in the Control Panel as you'll see in the text near the top.

    To open the control panel, e.g.
    Windows key + X, click Control Panel, click Ease of Access Centre

    or type
    Control
    in Cortana's search field and click appropriate result
