Mouse over


Recommended Posts


I use two screens from the same graphics card. The main screen I use for flight sim and I keep FSC on the second screen. If I move my mouse onto the FSC monitor it activates the FSC window without a click. This holds when I bring the mouse back onto the main screen or Flight Sim monitor. It can happen that I try and change something on the flight sim by clicking the mouse or scrolling the wheel but FSC changes. (not the worst problem in the world)

I drag my IVAP window onto my FSC monitor but I cannot get my mouse into the IVAP window again because as I move the mouse over FSC it activates the FSC window (no clicks) and hides the IVAP window.

I did notice on FSC 8.5 when I selected a flight plan from a list it jumped it straight onto the screen without double clicking or clicking ok - however this is fixed in 8.6 thanks for that.

Thanks for a great package - a little help if possible on the mouse over effect woud be great

Hi Davy,

this phenomenon is not due to properties of FS Commander, but rather has something to do with your Windows' mouse settings.

Since these settings depend both on your operating system and your mouse driver we cannot give general instructions at this point.

What you need to do is to check your mouse settings. There is feature called X-Mouse which may be specified in such a way that the focus always follows the mouse; i.e. it is always the window on which the mouse moved which receives focus. You need to deactivate this
