#Windows10 – Where is my mouse 🖱️ ? CTRL Key may help

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Here goes a quick Windows 10 tip. I work with several monitors, and from time to time, I lost my mouse. Yes, it sounds silly, but I start to move my mouse all around until I detect the location of the mouse pointer. So, there is a cool way to solve this, enabling a mouse settings, that will show the mouse pointer when you press the CTRL Key.

Enabling this is super easy.

  • Open Settings // Devices // Mouse
  • Select Additional Mouse options
  • In the [Pointer Options] tab, enable the [Show location … ] feature

Sounds familiar, yes?

Happy coding!

Greetings

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

Buy Me A Coffee

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.
