Windows 7: Win 7 dual monitor blocked corners problem when switching screens

Win 7 dual monitor blocked corners problem when switching screens

hey guys :)

im fairly disappointed that i didnt find a solution to my fix yet via google, as i am a very interested guy in technology/computers, but maybe u guys can help me solve this problem :)

the dilemma:
i have 2 monitors setup, monitor A is 2560x1440 and monitor B is 1920x1080.
when i try to move my mouse pointer from the bottom right corner or top right corner from monitor A to monitor B, it wont let me. here is a picture of how the monitors are ligned up:

what ive understood as of right now ( via google ) is the fact, that they both have a different resolution and therefore there is no way of giving the mouse extra "virtual" space to be in.

but maybe there is a clever software which can virtually calculate the %-difference between the resolutions.

the corners by themselves are approx. 1/8th of vertical length on monitor A.

i hope some of u find a solution

Hi veronimus, welcome to the Forum.

How do have the monitors connected to your computer, are they connected by DVI, VGA or HDMI cables.

What make & model of Graphics card are you using.

Could you please fill in all the necessary info under My System Specs, which is shown at the bottom left hand corner of your opening post.

Have not tried it but LittleBigMouse appears to do this.

"Little big mouse is a tool to allow correct mouse crossing from screen to screen when using multiple monitors with various Dpi scaling."

hey johnhoh,

ive downloaded this program, but it happens to when i try to apply the changes (for example change size or allow corner crossing) it just bugs out and stops working entirely

also its only in the alpha development since 2016, maybe that is the reason behind it, otherwise it looks pretty decent 1st view :)

unfortunately a program which stops working is not helping at all

update on the little big mouse version:

since it didnt work properly i tried to uninstall it, but that doesnt work either it just opens the uninstall window when i try it via "programs and features" but nothing happens


EDIT: forget that, im stupid
i manually went into the install folder of LBM and clicked "uninstall.exe" and there we go :)

hopefully some1 can find any solution to my initial problem
