How to Disable Hover-Select in Windows 10

Q. I just installed Windows 10 on my Lenovo laptop. It seems to select/open items when I hover over them for more than a second or two. This happens intermittently, but more often than not. How do I turn this off in Windows 10? Note that the Windows 7 and 8 solutions that I’ve seen here do not work in Windows 10: Windows 10 does not appear to provide the same mouse/touchpad options in the control panel as the earlier versions of Windows.


Method 1:

I suggest you to disable window by hovering over it with the mouse and check if it helps. To do so I suggest you to try the below given steps and check if it helps:

  1. Press Windows key + X key and click on Control Panel.
  2. Select or click Ease of Access.
  3. Click or tap onEase of Access Centre.
  4. Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.
  5. Check if issue is resolved.
