    Hey guys.

    I've started using three screens because it helps when having more windows open to mix music. However, I've run into an odd snag in that I can't seem to move my mouse between two of the windows; instead, to get between the first and third screens, I have to travel through the second screen. Below is a picture of my display configuration. I can move my mouse between 3 and 2, as well as 2 and 1, but not 1 and 3. Note that I've found a little indicator for my problem:

    No matter how I play around with the display config, I can't get mouse movement between all three screens. Anyone else ever have an issue like this?

    :)

  4. I'm using three screens and I can't move my mouse between two of them.

    Issues with the On screen keyboard and mouse pointer.

    Hi Robert,

    The issues with the mouse may arise due to driver conflicts and the issue related to the On Screen keyboard may be when the settings for the OSK are turned on.

    For the On screen keyboard issue, I suggest you to follow the below steps.


    • Type Ease of Access on the search bar.

    • Choose Ease of Access and click on
      Use the Computer without a mouse or keyboard option.

    • Check if the Type using a pointing device is turned on.

    • You may uncheck that option if it is turned on.
    Also try the below steps:


    • Press Windows key + R and type
      Services.msc
      .

    • Scroll down to find the "Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service".

    • Disable the option by right clicking on it.
    For the Mouse issue:

    I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Hardware
    and
    Devices.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
