In Windows 7 users have the option to turn off sticky corners when using more than one monitor, but it seems like Microsoft have disabled that feature in Windows 10. The problem is that there is some part of the screen where your mouse cursor will be stuck, and the mouse movement is not permitted in that part when using more than one monitors. This feature is called sticky corners, and when users were able to disable this feature in Windows 7, the mouse could move freely across the top of the screen between any number of monitors.
Windows 10 also got sticky corners where there are a few pixels at the top corners of each monitor (display) where the mouse cannot cross over to the other monitor. One must move the cursor away from this region to transition to the next display. So without wasting any time let’s see how to actually Disable Sticky Corners in Windows 10 with the below-listed guide.
Note: In Windows 8.1, 8 and 7 changing the value of MouseCornerClipLength registry key from 6 to 0 was able to disable Sticky corners, but unfortunately this trick doesn’t seem to work in Windows 10
