  1. Moving mouse brings up desktop


    New-ish HP computer, Windows 10. While working on document or reviewing email, moving the mouse causes the desktop screen to become active. How can I change the "window" to keep desktop from coming up.


    Also, is there any way to completely get rid of the startup box on the lower left that contains the same icons on the desktop. When playing games, pressing the Windows desktop icon on the keyboard brings up this irritation box on the left with icons. Highly irritating!

    :)

    I am sorry Matt but that is a step by step instruction. After you downloaded the file: wdm.zip and for simplicity, move it to desktop.
    1. Point your mouse to wdm.zip then click with right mouse button
    2. a menu popup, click on extract to wdm
    3. Navigate to the folder where you can find the file: wdma_emu.inf
    4. Point your mouse at the file then click with right mouse button again
    5. a menu pop up, move your mouse to Install then click with the left mouse button.

  3. mouse axis ''X'' is now ''Y'' and viceversa

    Hi Richiesco,

    I would suggest you to test the issue plugging in a different mouse and see if the issue persists.

    You may also test the same mouse on a different computer and let us know the results.

    I would also suggest you to follow these steps and test the issue:

    • Click on Start.
    • Search for Ease of Access and click on Ease of Access mouse settings.
    • Turn on Use numeric keypad to move mouse around the screen.
    • Check if the mouse moves in the right direction when you use the numeric keypad on the keyboard.

    Let us know if it helps.
