January 8th, 2021 by Admin Leave a reply »

Is there a quicker way to switch between open windows? Clicking on a window can bring it from background to foreground and make it active. But that method is not really fast. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to quickly activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse in Windows 10.

How to Activate a Window by Hovering over It with Mouse

  1. Open the Control Panel in Large icons view, and click on Ease of Access Center.

  2. Scroll down to the “Explore all settings” section and click on the “Make the mouse easier to use” link.

  3. Under the “Make it easier to manage windows” section, check the box that says activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse. Click OK and you’re done.

  4. If you have multiple windows open, just move the mouse pointer over any window and hold it for two seconds, that will become the active window.
