Moving Mouse Out Of Fullscreen game Without Alt+Tab

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi! I have two monitors and I find that playing on fullscreen on my games just makes it look smoother. But there is one downside to using fullscreen, i can't move my curser to the other screen without alt+tabing. Doing this takes time to unload, then load the game, over and over again (I use my second monitor a lot during gaming sessions). I was wondering, is there a way to allow my curser to move between monitors, without alt+tabing and using borderless/windowed?

Borderless windowed mode is the easiest way

So how would you want your PC to determine when you want your cursor to leave the game window?

When say, playing a shooter and the cursor is always at the center of the screen.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I use borderless windows for games like Football Manager.

 

I have the game on one screen and my spreadsheets and guides etc on another screen.

There are multimonitor software which can force window to stay active. How well they do it, when I tried last it was hit and miss.

The software didn't work? What software did you use?

I have full version of DisplayFusion. It worked with some games, but not with BF4 for example. It has some better working stuff like locking cursor within active window.
