Windows 10 mouse settings

Post by TruthSeeker »

I watch a lot of videos online. I like to go into full screen mode. What's annoying is every time I bump the mouse I get the mouse pointer and that bottom line. It's annoying. I'd like to set the mouse up so I'd have to click it in order for it to be activated.

Does anyone know the setting or software you can recommend for this?

Try the following - replace the mouse with your keyboard.

You can keep the cursor from moving by using Mouse Keys only for moving the mouse pointer

Open Ease of Access Center by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Ease of Access, clicking Ease of Access Center.

Click Make the mouse easier to use.

Under Control the mouse with the keyboard, select the Turn on Mouse Keys check box.

After click on 'set up mouse keys'

Pointer speed to high , acceleration to fast

Check if it works with the numeric keyboard *after clicking on Apply, OK...

If it works and you have a wireless mouse, just switch the mouse off and use only the keyboard when moving the cursor.

Tried what you said. Didn't work. I don't think you are understanding.

The only way to do what I want is to semi unplug the mouse from the USB port. That way when I accidently bump into it or move it it doesn't disturb the video.

Sorry, but this is the only way I know in windows settings to stop a mouse cursor from moving if you touch the mouse accidentally.
The cursor will move only if you use the keyboard.

However you might consider to buy a USB Hub with switches, so you can switch on / off the mouse.

I have no problem like this as I am using 2 monitors.
In case I prefer a full screen for a movie etc., I just move the mouse cursor over to the other screen.

Thanks for your input. What I did was unplug the mouse then plugged in an Android controller. It's less easily disturbed.
