    Turning off "window focus follows mouse"


    I was running Win 7 before the upgrade and I had the window focus setting to follow my mouse. In other words, I just needed to place my mouse in a window for it to be focused... no clicking necessary. There was a small delay in the focus and this worked well for me. I find in 10, however, that the delay is gone so as I move my mouse around the screen, windows popup very quickly. The easiest solution for me is to just turn off the feature. But I can't seem to find where to do that. In 7, this was done via Ease of Access menu but that option is not there in 10 nor is it in the mouse options and I don't see a Windows Settings option/menu anywhere. Anyone have any idea of how to fix this issue? The only way I can manage my windows right now is to minimise everything other than the window I'm working in... this is a bit inconvenient.

    Hello Bam, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you should be able to use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to manually turn this off or adjust the timeout in Registry Editor.
