Xwindows mouse functionality


The unix XWindow system has a neat feature called “autoraise”. When autoraise is
in ON, you don’t click on a window to bring it to the front of the window stack.
Instead, just passing the mouse over any part of the window raises it. This can
take getting used to but saves a lot of mouse clicks. If you want to try it or
you are used to the feature from Xwindows:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key:
Control Panel\Mouse
Name: ActiveWindowTracking
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1
The X window system has another neat feature
called “snap to”. When this feature is enabled, the mouse snaps to the default
button upon alert or dialog windows. Try it, you may like it. To enable:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key:
Control Panel\Mouse
Name: SnapToDefaultButton
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1
