    mouse hover over chrome window does not activate post screen resume


    Win 10 pro ver 2004 build 19041.804
    Lenovo X260

    After screen has turned off then awoken by moving mouse, the chrome and edge browser screens do not become active just by hovering the mouse and moving the scroll wheel (or trackpoint)

    It is necessary to either click on the tab at the top or else on the toolbar at the bottom.

    I have the exact same build on a desktop which does not have that problem.

    Steps tried already:
    Graphics driver check, intel HD 520 up to date, nothing to roll back to
    Mouse driver - ditto
    indexing service - refreshed
    Unused apps stopped - adobe, groove, xbox
    disk clean run
    cclean run
    Mouse setting -'scroll inactive window' is set
    DCOM error 10016 in windows log dealt with - deleted the 3 reg keys as listed in various forums.
    full virus scan with defender on and offline

    Any other ideas please?

    :)

    Activate window on mouse hover


    OK, this is what worked for me to Extend the time of the hover before Focus kicks in, do all the following.
    Start - Search Type in regedit - Click Yes when asked about the app making changes.
    go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    go to Contorl panel
    go to Mouse
    On the list on the right go to Mouse Hover Time
    Click on it. I changed it from 400 to 4000, you can do less, it's your call.
    Close the registry editor.
    Now Log off, then log back on, or Restart if you feel more comfortable.
    Now go to Control Panel - All Control Panel Items
    go to Ease of Access Center
    Go to Make the Mouse Easier to Use
    Uncheck the "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse" box
    Click Apply
    NOW RE-CHECK the "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse"
    Click Apply again.
    You should now find your hover time between windows is at a reasonable delay, and not instant.

    Hi guys, I'm having the same issue and Option 3 in that tutorial is not working for me. Should I start a new thread?

    Mouse Hover Makes Window Active - Enable - Windows 7 Help Forums

    My situation: in Win7, I had the option checked to 'Activate window on mouse hover' and just upgraded to Win10 and it's driving me crazy having no delay before the window gets active.

    I went into the registry and for
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    UserPreferenceMask the value there after the upgrade is DF 7E 07 80 12 00 00 00

    I changed this to the suggested: 9F 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00 and after logging back in, on hover, the window gets active but not focused - not what I'm looking for so I have left this value at DF...

    for:
    ActiveWndTrkTimeout
    I changed the decimal value to 150 and still no delay. Even at 500, still no delay.

    Help *Confused
