This is called the "Pop-up Description", and it can be disabled and enabled (see link). The time it takes for it to pop up is called the "Mouse Hover Time". It is specified in the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse, item named MouseHoverTime, specifying the time to pop up in milliseconds (400 milliseconds is the default).

Ah I just figured it out! This KVM has a "fast switching mode" where you can hit the side of the screen with your mouse twice to switch inputs. Somehow this got turned on. (It also explains why it was randomly switching inputs without me asking!) As soon as you turn it off (Scroll lock, Scroll lock, F12), the mouse works perfectly again. My guess ...

A solution that comes builtin with Mac OSX (without third-party apps nor workarounds) is setting the mouse three buttons within Settings, Mission Control, Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts. Here you'll be able to select the action for each of the buttons.

I had the same issues when moving the USB dongle to the other side of the Mac Book so that the Mac Book was in between the dongle and the mouse. As soon as I moved the dongle closer to the mouse and connected it into a docking station with nothing in between dongle and mouse, lag was gone.

Don't panic, your data is still there and laptop can be reset and will be good as new. In fact, it will be better than new after reset ;-) If your primary objective is not losing data, stop immediately with any attempts to repair/reset anything, as well as trying to retrieve your password or boot from another Windows USB stick. Make a backup of your data ...

tl;dr: Try using the AutoHotkey script at the end. I'm on a Lenovo ThinkPad T570, your mileage may vary. I opened AutoHotkey to see what happens when I touch the touchpad with three fingers. This is what happens on the client side: VK SC Type Up/Dn Elapsed Key ---------------------------------------- 5B 05B a d 6.61 LWin A2 ...

Not directly relevant to OP's case, but for anyone else arriving here from Google: If you're using iTerm2 on macOS, this can be accomplished by unticking "Report mouse clicks & drags" while keeping "Report mouse wheel events" ticked, under Profiles -> Terminal. (Note, however, that this will also disable pane selection through ...

This is possible. Depending on your mouse software, you might be able to remap the buttons in it. Logitech and other gaming mice often come with software that easily lets you remap buttons. AutoHotKey can remap mouse clicks as well. There are third party software programs that do it as well. You can Google for them. Here is one site I found.

I had these issues when I plugged in just the USB 3 cable to my recently acquired Mac Mini 2014 and had the cable across the unit, when I unplugged them or moved them to the side the jitter went away. even worse I had a dual dock next to the Mini and it destroyed the b-tree node on all the hard drives (x4) I put in there, so I couldn't mount them anywhere ...

A Bluetooth device may send commands to windows without the OS knowing the physical properties of the device. So there's no way such behaviour could be controlled through the OS. Only the behaviour of the standard mouse buttons (left, right, wheel) can be controlled directly through the OS: these are the only buttons which are common across all manufaturers. ...

When "enhance pointer precision" is off, there is no way to set an arbitrary speed multiplier. The slider controls the MouseSensitivity value in the Registry, which is always an integer between 1 and 20. win32kbase.sys always passes the sensitivity setting around as an integer and numerous functions include range checks. The most relevant function ...

This works for me but I only found it after much trial and error - in other words I cannot explain the how and why. Go to devices and click on mouse. Then go to the folder 'mouse properties' and then UNCLICK 'automatically move pointer to the default button in dialogue box' Then apply and you will find that the problem disappears - DON'T ASK ME WHY BUT IT ...

Try to deactivate it via the device manager. If it works you can write a script to turn it on/off. If you consider using a second dongle, you could consider buying a USB hub with buttons to turn the individual ports on and off. Might be easier then unplugging/re-plugging the dongle. A third option would be to disable/enable the mouse via Logitech's Unifying ...

AFAIK, there is no way to control the info pop-up delay without rewriting Windows. The Registry switch for the feature is at Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced, ShowInfoTip. There might be some features in Windows Ease of Access settings that affect the delay of the info pop-up, but they would likely ...

You can try to set the Run method of wsl to 'Native connector' and add set -g terminal-overrides 'xterm*:smcup@:rmcup@' to ~/.tmux.conf. See Archlinux: Tmux#Scrolling_issues for more details.

It will 'work' for a simple definition of 'work'. It will point & it will click. All the rest will be dependant on the specialist drivers/control panel… which certainly seem to be Windows only, as you suspect. Google Translate - English version of their homepage

Had similar problem. Wireless mouse was waking up PC even though wake up setting was disabled in the power management. Also I didn't have shared receiver problem, as I have wired keyboard. But disabling "Allow this device to wake computer" on one of the device listed under keyboard solved the problem. Funny :) Left the setting on for another device ...

I found a solution, I was seeing the exact same behavior described above. I'm using an HP laptop with a dock that has 2 external monitors connected, I believe that is where the problem exists. When disconnected from the dock the cursor issue never happens. The solution for me was to undock, power cycle the dock, redock. That fixed it for me and a few other ...

The same thing happened to me, at first I thought it was software but when trying to connect with another pc the same thing happened, so I decided to open it and see what happened, the mouse was very dirty and had humidity since sometimes I put wet clothes on it I just passed a brush with alcohol to everything and solved. it is very easy to disassemble it ...

I had this same issue and none of the solutions I found through google worked. What worked for me was to user the "Multikey Macro" option instead of simple keystrokes. Make sure you check the "record delays between events option" And then after you've recorded your macro you can adjust the delays between key events to something shorter. ...

This always was driving me crazy! I finally figured out that if you give it a light tap, almost lifting the mouse off the desk, quickly, it will wake... without sending a click signal to the computer. Give it a try!

Try Flashback Express, https://www.flashbackrecorder.com/express/ It's free, although it does nag you to buy Flashback Pro. Flashback Pro includes video editing but if you have a different way of editing your videos then Flashback Express is all you need for recording. The weird thing about Flashback Express is that you change the cursor size after you've ...

I was having the same issue. It turned out to be my docking station. I powered off and powered on the docking station and the issue went away.

I know this question is old, but if someone else(like me for the past few weeks) is looking for a solution to this problem, maybe he/she finds this helpful. The following solution worked in my case (credits go to Reddit user /u/zelloxy) : "Start command prompt. Type powercfg -devicequery wake_armed. Enter powercfg -devicedisablewake <deviceName>. ...

I modified Arnaud Weil's script to make it work with my setup. First time using AutoHotKey for me. My #1 monitor has negative Y coordinates, while #2 has positive. So I'm checking MouseY instead of MouseX. I used the debugging feature in AutoHotKey in order to determine the coordinates near the middle of each screen, and simply hard-coded those into the ...

This is a feature: If there is a gap between monitors as Windows sees them you have to "jump" over this. monitors position example In this setup the mous moves smoothly in the area where monitors 2 and 3 "touch", as well as between monitors 1 and 3. The gap between monitors 1 and 2 needs speed to overcome.

I solved the horizontal scrolling by using key-mapper gui software, and then mapping the left wheel button (BUTTON SIDE) to wheel(right,1); and the right wheel button to wheel(left,1).
