  1. Mouse Clicks and Hovering not registering.


    Don't really know how else to describe it, but ever since I played the Master Chief Collection on steam about an hour ago, my mouse has been basically nonfunctional. It would work on some windows, but almost all windows processes, including the Taskbar and desktop, nothing would big picked up. I can hover over things in the start menu but not click them, clicking on tabs like task manager causes them to unfocus, and I can only interact with the desktop sometimes. I've tried launching in safe mode, unplugging things, and switches mice to no result. Any solutions would be appreciated.

    Edit:Switching mice and restarting seems to have maybe fixed it

    Trouble with Hover function

    Hi Gwendolyn,

    The option to activate a window by hovering it with the mouse may not be enabled, and this could be a possible cause why you are experiencing an issue with using the hover function of your mouse.

    Follow these steps to enable the Activate a window by hovering it with the mouse option:

    • Using Cortana, type ease of access.
    • On the search results, click on Ease of Access Center.
    • Choose Make the mouse easier to use.
    • Under Make it easier to manage windows, tick on the checkbox beside Activate a window by hovering it with the mouse.
    • Click Apply and then click OK.
    • Restart your computer.

    Let us know if further assistance is needed.
