Automatically move the mouse pointer to the dialog box in Windows

We have seen how you can make the confirmatory dialog window appear near your mouse pointer. Here is a small tip on how you can automatically move the mouse pointer to the dialog box in Windows 10/8/7.

Automatically move the mouse pointer to the dialog box

To do so, open Control Panel > Mouse Properties > Pointer Options.

Check the Automatically move the pointer to the default button in a dialog box.

Click Apply > OK.

This will activate the Snap To feature.

Now the moment a confirmation dialog box appears, you will not have to physically move the pointer there, but instead, the pointer will automatically snap to the default button in the dialog box.

If you have a large monitor, and you get irritated when you have to keep moving your mouse pointer to the center of the screen to acknowledge small dialog boxes that appear, then this tip may interest you.

Try it and see if you can get used to it!
