Cursor Lock 2.6 – Restrict Mouse Cursor to Selected Area

While you’re playing PC games, the mouse pointer or cursor unexpectedly goes out of the playing window, thus causing you inconvenience. To confine the mouse cursor to one particular area on the screen, you can use a small utility program called ‘Cursor Lock’. It is mostly useful in multi-monitor setups, dealing with a common oversight in few applications (mostly games), where the mouse cursor shifts to other areas on the screen. Particularly when minimizing the game window as the cursor is clicked accidentally.

Cursor Lock is confined not only to games but also in other windowed applications, where you wish the mouse cursor to stay focused on the selected area. The latest version Cursor Lock 2.6 has improved GUI, support for Windows 7/Vista/UAC and translations, tooltips, default logging, cleaned up text, and updated links.
