Re: "focus" follows mouse -- possible with Vista??

Time to hack the registry.

Go to:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
For full X-Mouse, add +41h to the first number stored in binary key
"UserPreferencesMask".
If you only want "focus follows mouse," add +1h.

For example, the value for my key was "9E 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00"
I edited it to "9F 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00" to get "focus follows mouse"
If I had wanted full X-Mouse, I'd have edited it to "D9 3E 07 80 12 00
00 00"

After that is done, edit the 32bit dword key "ActiveWndTrkTimeout" to
the number of milliseconds (in decimal) that you want it to wait before
it changes the focus. If this key does not exist, you can create one.
With the key set to zero or no key at all, it will automatically change
the focus as soon as your cursor touches a new window.

Hope this helps.

ps. If you add these changes to the .DEFAULT account in [HKEY_USERS],
they will be present for all newly created accounts. This is handy for
domain controllers and such.
