  2. How to disable "auto-select" when hovering - Windows 10

    Hi LianeLe,

    There's a possibility that the auto-select on mouse hover is enabled on mouse settings that's you're experiencing this kind of issue. You may follow these steps to disable this feature and see if it works:

    1. Open Settings.
    2. On the search bar, type in Control Panel, and click it from the search results.
    3. Once in Control Panel window, set the view to small icons, then select
      Ease of Access Center.
    4. Under Explore all settings, select Make the mouse easier to use option.
    5. Under Make it easier to manage windows, uncheck Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    6. Once done, click Apply, then OK.

    Please observe if the mouse still auto-select and then update this thread with the result so I can assist you further if needed.

    Regards.

  3. How to disable "auto-select" when hovering - Windows 10

    Am getting really frustrated. Yesterday, immediately after putting in a brand new flashdrive (Sandisk) on my Lenovo laptop ... I was reading the options list for how to open the file and was simply hovering over the list when the darned system auto-selected
    "Adobe Reader". I didn't click on it or even touch the computer. I was just hovering over the list.

    It's not the first time this has happened. The stupid thing selects and OPENS anything I hover over for more than a few seconds. I have found several complaints about this on various websites ... but have not found an answer to the question ...

    "How do I DISABLE" this really, really annoying "feature"?

    It has added unwanted bookmarks when surfing the web, opened websites I didn't want to go to, opened programmes I didn't want to open ... and on and on.

    I want this thing stopped once and for all. I contacted Microsoft Help and wasted close to an hour of my life. Whatever the young lady told me to do under "Ease of Access" didn't fix the problem at all.

    Does anyone have any REAL fix?
