    Mouse hovering over other programs


    I have some problems with my mouse. If i've more screens opened, I normally can switch to the other screen with my mouse. Today I installed Windows 10, but every time I hover to another Window, it puts that window to the foreground. So the other windows, are behind this Window.
    For example, see this image.


    Mouse hovering over other programs [​IMG]

    If I hover the big panel behind the small panel, the smaller panel will immediatly go behind the bigger panel. That's very annoying, because I have to exit everything to access the smaller panel again. Normally, it doens't work this way. Where can I turn it off?

    I went to my mouse settings, but I can't find it and I searched a lot of things on the internet, but didn't find the answer.

    :)

    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.

    Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.

    Method 2:

    I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Kindly follow the below given steps.

    Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”.

    In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers.

    Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".

    In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.

    In the Action menu of Device manager, select “Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled. Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer.
