Monitor Auto-select?

Is it possible to auto-select the monitor that the mouses cursor it on?
So you don't have to click on the monitor to select it, I mean. If there isn't,
that's an option I would like to suggest.

Just for clarification, you'd like it to be auto-selected in the wallpaper configuration?

Just so when you move the mouse onto a monitors screen,
that monitor is the active monitor, without having to click
the mouse.

Click on "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse"

Yup, that's what I was looking for.
I didn't know that was in Win7 either.

After using it for a day, I had to turn it off. It gets to be a
pain if you have a confirmation box pop up and you go back
and forth trying check it. I'll keep searching.

Ok, I can add the original request to our feature request list. If we were to put it in, what would you like to see different from the way the Windows setting does it?

Maybe if it was possible to make the box that is already on top
have priority when you move the cursor to that monitor. Like if
there is a confirmation box that has popped up on the other monitor,
you move the cursor to that monitor, and that box becomes active.
With the setting in windows control panel, you have to select the
window on the task bar and be very quick to get the cursor on
the window you want. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries. That's why
I turned it off.

There is a setting in the mouse options "Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box"

it is under Control Panel
Search Control Panel "mouse"
Change mouse settings
Pointer Options

Not sure if that is what you're looking for

Another good idea :)

@mobius60: if you get a chance to try that, let me know how it goes.

Thanks!
