#Windows10 – Fixing Mouse Without Border DPI screen settings (very easy!)

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

A while ago, I wrote about the awesome [Mouse without Borders] application. This app is extremely useful, and it’s becoming very handy in scenarios like the Avanade Toronto Innovation Center.

In our Innovation Center, we have plenty of different machines, and it wasn’t a good moment when I realize that this is how the App Settings looks in a Windows 10 machine with some DPI customization.

I don’t have a lot of Windows Presentation Experience, however I know that we can solve this via some configuration / manifest changes for the App. I look up for the application folder [C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Garage\Mouse without Borders], and I opened the [MouseWithoutBorders.exe.manifest] file with Visual Studio Code.

Lucky for me, the section that I needed to add it was already there. It was commented, so I un-commented this, save the file and restart the application. Of course, you need elevated privileges to do this.

5 seconds later my Settings windows was finally amazing again!

Happy coding!

#Windows10 – Mouse without borders, a #MustHave if you work with 2 or more computers

Hi!

Somehow, I didn’t know this one, shame on me!

If you work with 2 computers, is a must have. In example, at home I have a power gaming computer for AI and Mixed Reality. I work with 2 monitors, my ergonomic Microsoft keyboard and my Logitech MX Master 2S mouse. I perform most of the work on my main computer, however from time to time, I need to switch to my laptop.

Thanks to the Microsoft Garage team, in 10 minutes I can easily share my mouse and keyboard from my main computer to my laptop just moving the mouse between desktops. As a bonus, I can also share clipboard, and tons of other amazing features.
