Focus follows mouse on Windows 8

Setting this up is one of the first few things I do after a fresh windows install.


Fireup regedit.exe and head to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

Then tinker with the following (full details of all those regkeys here):


Bit UI Setting Default Value Meaning
0 Active window tracking 0 Active window tracking disabled.


Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD Milliseconds 0

Specifies time (in milliseconds) that the mouse needs to remain over a window before the window is activated.
