    Translucent focus rectangle when hovering over selections


    Whenever I point the mouse over something, be it desktop icons, mozilla buttons etc, I get this translucent focus. How do I get rid of it?

    Caveat!: Do so at your own risk! Read all instructions carefully, read all comments at the bottom carefully!

    Works for me, with the exception of pressing the WinKey for Start Menu and Shift/Selecting something.

    How do I remove field/area focus rectangle in Win 10


    I have recently upgraded from Win7 and finding some settings in Win 10 a challenge. Specifically the OS selects a field or screen area that it applies focus for keyboard entry. I'd like to remove that function. It does not help usability for me and there is a delay before the focus rectangle is displayed which is distracting. The cursor location should be sufficient to highlight where the focus is. There is no need to show both the cursor and focus rectangle.

    Anyone able to give guidance on how to remove the focus rectangle? I've looked through the Ease of Use features and Advanced Settings, but might have missed something.
