  1. How to fix cursor lock


    I have two monitors for my pc and when gaming, my cursor becomes locked into the monitor the game is running on. I have to press the windows key or tab out of the game to free my cursor into the other monitor. Any fixes for this?

    Thank you both for your prompt replies, I tried all steps listed, some I had tries previously but I still tried them again, but still no cursor.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Mouse cursor not locked to crosshair in UWP applications

    My mouse cursor isn't locked to my crosshair when I'm unpaused from Minecraft or other apps. I've tried reinstalling and resetting Minecraft, no good. Restarting my PC, no good.

    Resetting UWP apps through Powershell seems to not work either;
    HTML Code:
    Here's a short demonstration of the bug:

    Such a mind boggling issue. Can't find a solution for this problem even on the internet.

    Things I've tried that provided no solution:

    • Resetting/Uninstalling Minecraft
    • Reinstalling UWP apps to their defaults.
    • Shutdown/Restarting my PC.
    • Repairing my computer with SFC and DISM
    • Repairing my PC with Windows Media Installation Tool (Upgrade PC Keep Files Option)
    • Uninstalling/Reinstalling my mouse drivers.
    I have tried recovering from a restore point and it seemed to fix the issue temporarily but the issue returned.

    How to fix cursor lock

    Any fix for the Cursor Bug?

    I recently read some people have managed to fix the cursor bug by flashing their GPU bios and was wondering if there was any truth to this. I'm using a Powercolor PCS+ 5870 and they don't seem to provide a download for the GPU Bios so I'm hesitant to take any risks.

    Using 10.10 attached is a pic of the cursor glitching this morning.
