Windows 10: Restricting mouse cursor to selected displays

    Restricting mouse cursor to selected displays


    I have four monitors but I don't use them all, all the time. It's annoying to lose the mouse cursor to a monitor which is turned off so I'd like to be able to restrict the mouse to the monitors which are in use. There are plenty of solutions to restrict the mouse cursor to any particular single monitor but I want it to be able to move the cursor across multiple monitors and use hotkeys to toggle which displays are included.

    You'll want to use a tool like this which can stop the mouse from leaving the monitor until you want it to:

    Thanks. Unfortunately, I can only find tools which restrict to a single monitor at a time. I want to be able to restrict to multiple monitors (i.e. any two or three out of the four connected). I envisaged using the Windows Clipcursor function with AutoHotKey but I don't know whether it's possible to define regions spanning more than one monitor at a time.

    Well, with the DMT tools you could do a couple of things to make it better like the Sticky option.

    Or when in doubt, just turn on Windows cursor finder and press CTRL to find the cursor.
