Non Stick Mouse in corners of Windows 10

Use this application to disable or bypass the sticky corners in Windows 10 for dual displays or multiple monitors. What it does is hop the mouse over the sticking corners, as well as the screen edges when moving windows. Thus it allows the dragging of windows through screens without your mouse getting hijacked by the Snap Assist.

The Hot Corners and Snap Assist still work, but now only when you want them to.

Latest Version released on 10th of July, 2018.

Here is the actual application itself if you wish to save it directly and run it whenever you wish: –

I’ve been asked for an installer so it can run automatically on boot – so here it is, an installer: –
Click to download NSM setup

And for your peace of mind the full source code written in Delphi, 3 files on GitHub.

This application does not read or write to any drive, it does not access the registry or connect to the Internet.
I am only sharing this as I took the time to write it and I notice many people are annoyed by these Microsoft “features”.

It hides its window – so terminate it use the Task Manager. It is not designed to be overly clever, it does not have a notification tray icon.
If you want it to run on start up make a shortcut to where you have saved it in the start up folder, or use the installer!

If it is does not work at all please let me know and I will try to fix it when I have time.
It won’t fire when the active/topmost window belongs to a process which is running with privileges elevated higher than what NonStickMouse itself is running with.

Subsequently I have also developed a debug version: –

This has a User Interface showing the screen dimensions and offsets of each monitor, the mouse tracking, and the values it was at when the last hop was fired. This application will also hop the mouse so for complete accuracy please terminate NonStickMouse.exe when using it.

You may choose to compile this yourself for your own sense of security – in which case follow the instructions here: –

  1. Hi Jonathan! Thanks for this amazing app!

    Unfortunately i cannot download the installer. When I try opening the link, it says “The connection was reset”.

    Tried same in Firefox and Internet explorer, but no luck.

    Any was to download it?

    Br,

    Anton

  2. Maybe I am using it wrong but I installed the software and verified it was running but my mouse still hangs when moving between the bottom and top monitor. I have 4 monitors that are stacked, 2 on the bottom, 2 on top. Moving left to right or right to left between monitors works fine. When I move up to the top monitors or down from the top to the bottom I have to move the mouse very fast in order for the mouse to move down. If not it gets stuck at the bottom edge or top edge.

    • The first guess is that the monitors aren’t aligned. They may look like they are in the Display Options, but that screen hides unaligned monitors by design (which is a flaw by Microsoft). So to test that’s not it first please download the debug version: –
      http://www.jawfin.net/download/NSMDebug.exe

      And post a screenshot of what it shows. It has the actual screen coordinates and offsets which help identify these kinds of issues.
