To remove the setting that automatically moves the mouse pointer over a button

In rare cases, I’ve come across devices that are set to automatically move the pointer over a file, folder, or button when I move the pointer near it in Windows.

To be honest, I find it difficult to use, but people seem to like to use this setting. In this article, I’ll show you how to set it up so that you can choose whether you want to use this setting or not.

  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Select “Hardware and Sound”.
  3. Select “Mouse”.

  4. Select the “Pointer Options” tab.

  5. Uncheck the “Automatically move the pointer to the specified button (U)” box.

  6. This completes the setup.

I am Japanese, and my computer is set up in Japanese. So there may be some differences in the names of the buttons and windows.
