I'm using a dual-monitor setup and in one of the monitors I have a maximized VMWare virtual machine. Everytime the virtual machine's window receives focus it moves the mouse to the center of that monitor. If the virtual machine window is not maximized the mouse doesn't jump.
Some situations where the mouse is moved:
- A program in the guest OS has focus, and I minimize that window. VMWare gains focus and moves the mouse away.
- A program in the guest OS has focus, I click on VMWare's toolbar (in the middle of the top edge) to access any of its menus or buttons (like minimize, restore, File menu, etc.) and the mouse jumps to the center of the screen.
Is there a way to configure VMWare to stop doing that? I've looked in all the configuration and setting windows and haven't been able to find anything that helps me.
