Lock Cursor Tools is a very innovative software that allows you to lock the mouse cursor to a region on your screen. This way you can limit the movement of the mouse cursor to a particular region on your screen along with various mouse events like mouse clicks and mouse wheel scrolls.
In order to lock the mouse cursor to a region on your screen, you can toggle the Lock Cursor Tools either using a hotkey or using the notification area icon. By default the hotkey used by this software is Ctrl + Alt + F12. But this hotkey can be changed later on.
From the system tray icon, you can also choose whether the cursor has to be locked to an area on your screen or to a monitor (if you have multiple monitor configuration) or to an application running on your system. The last option (limit the cursor to an application) is very useful when you want to focus only on a single application and do not want the inadvertent clicks in the wrong place.
If you choose to limit the cursor to a custom area, then you have to select a rectangular region by left-clicking on your screen and dragging to form a rectangle. The red bar on the top displays the screen coordinates of the selected region and its area in pixels to help you select a region.
If you select a region on your screen that limits the mouse cursor to an area not including the system tray, then you won’t be able to toggle off Lock Cursor Tools later. This is when you have to use the hotkey to toggle it off. You can assign various hotkeys for toggling the cursor lock for a region or different monitors from the settings.
It is a really useful software as it can prevent unintentional accidental clicks on some application when you are typing using your laptop keyboard and your fingers touch the touchpad by mistake. It also helps find the mouse cursor quickly when you have a large screen and very high screen resolution.
