Ignore Monitor?

William Ashplant
3 discussion posts
I have 3 monitors. The third is just there to display pictures (using Displayfusion Wallpaper settings). I am not using it for anything else and the last thing I want is my mouse to wander on to it when I accidentally move to the right of my main monitor. I have tried setting it in "ignore monitor" (1,) but that does not seem to have any effect. Any suggestions, please? Basically I only want my mouse to be appearing on my two main screens! Thanks.

Hi William,

I think the easiest way to do this, would be to open up the Monitor Configuration window. You should see all 3 of your monitors shown in the main window, and you can click and drag the monitor where you would like. If you drag it up, so its not touching another monitor, it should prevent the mouse from moving over to that screen. I'll attach a screenshot as well to show you what it should look like.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Owen. I have tried this (using shift to "prevent monitor snapping") but there is not enough room on the display to get the third monitor away from the middle one. It keeps snapping back. And I just found, if I manage to get my mouse onto that 3rd monitor, I can't get it back without a lot of hassle! A snapshot is attached.

Hi William,

What if you have the monitor overlap a bit in the monitor configuration screen, like the screenshot I posted? This way, the mouse will only move over if moved in the upper right corner, but still allow you to move it over if needed.

If that doesn't work for you, you can try using the "Lock / Unlock mouse cursor to current monitor" function, to prevent it from moving over, although I understand that may not be ideal.

Let me know how that works!

Hi Owen

I seem to have achieved what I wanted by using "wrap mouse around top & bottom monitor edges", which has meant the cursor reappears at the bottom of my main screen rather than wandering off onto the third screen. Thank you for you support!
