Windows 10 "feature" fix request

Hey guys,

So I just moved over to windows 10 earlier this week, and there is one "feature" that is irking me that has no official fix. I googled around and found nothing akin to a proper fix, and I was hoping displayfusion could see it in their breadth to implement an option to fix this, and I am sure many users have seen this issue and "fixed it" by giving up a few too many features.

if you have "snapping" on in windows 10, the mouse get stuck on the crossover between monitors (unless you move your mouse at speed). disabling this option in windows also disables drag to top to maximize, and all other snapping functionality. Why there isn't split options like any sane OS would have is beyond me. Some of the registry fixes disable the windows from resizing, but but do nothing about your mouse getting stuck in the first place.

The solution can be implemented in two ways, the latter I think would be easier: First, figure out the proper way to disable this mouse sticking issue. Secondly, a re-implementation of the drag to top to maximize (and according drag down to restore) would side step the lost features from disabling windows snapping. Throw in far side snapping or even additionally snap to inside border without it stopping your mouse to be feature full.

Save us from this OS tyranny!

Thanks!

O yea and I might as well bring this up again, can we please get a settings shortcut in the desktop wallpaper dialog? Right next to help would be great~
Just saw the setting to change what clicking the icon did, good enough for me :)

We may be adding a feature to "fix" this in the future, but in the meantime, there's another really small utility that fixes this issue: http://www.jawfin.net/nsm

Hope that helps!

Haha, yeah, I only found it because I subscribed to a very long thread in the Microsoft forums with people complaining about the same thing

We've just released a new DisplayFusion beta version and there's now an option on the Mouse Management tab for disabling the sticky corners. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

Doesn't seem to work, neither does nonstickmouse so I will test a bit here and see whats going on.

DisplayFusion uses mouse hooks for this feature, and I'm guessing that Non-Stick Mouse does as well. Maybe something else on your system is swallowing the hook messages?

I will have to test again, nonstickmouse might be breaking your implementation until restart.

I am understanding this is supposed to be a 1:1 replacement for NSM right?

Honestly I haven't tested Non-Stick Mouse, but from what I understand, yes, this feature should do the same thing

Well I can't seem to get it to work as expected then, this is when dragging a window across monitor borders right?

No, it's just for moving the mouse between screens at the corners. DisplayFusion won't prevent the snag that happens when Windows Aero Snap detects a window being dragged near the edge. If you drag the window quickly, Windows should ignore the snag.

That's not at all what NSM does, its only use is fixing the snag when dragging, the corner issue I don't even know of? You already have a "false corners" option- I thought? Whats the difference between what this is and the old option? So is NSM not going to be replicated?

My bad, I didn't realize that it disabled the sticky edges as well. I will add that to our list too.

Bumping this again

Windows 10 added a way to disable snapping but doesn't have fine enough settings to keep "drag to top" but not have the mouse try to snap to monitor seperations. I have read "actaul window manager" can do this fine, but seems like a DF clone. Would be nice to have the option finally, nothing seems to fix this in the current settings.

It's still open on our list. If/when we're able to implement it we'll be sure to post an update.

Thanks!
