As technology made progressed in LCD manufacturing, they got bigger, better and bolder. As more and more screen real estate was pushed to the consumers, they craved for even more and now we work on multiple displays at the same time. If you have four displays sitting on your desk, then you’d definitely been enjoying all the real estate luxury. However, sometimes multi-display setups cause difficulty for people to manage things and becomes difficult to move mouse pointer from one end to the other, especially horizontally.If you are looking for an application that will let you move your mouse cursor over the edge of the screen to the other side, then try Unlimited Mouse. This miniscule application is extremely useful especially for dual, triple or more display setups. This portable application allows you to move your mouse cursor across the edges of your screen, i.e. you move it through one edge and it emerges from the other side. It unlocks your mouse, and enables cursor movement from right-end of the screen to the left-end and from top to bottom without getting stopped by the screen edges. Not only that but you can also unlock and lock you mouse whenever you want to use this feature. More to follow.
After installation, the application runs in system tray, so there is no major interface to play with. Right-click the notification icon of application to reveal the context menu which contains Unlock Mouse and Lock Mouse options. Whenever you want to move your mouse across the borders of your screen, open the options and hit Unlock Mouse. Likewise, when you need to lock it again, click Lock Mouse to restore the normal cursor behavior. When Unlock Mouse option is enabled, you will see the mouse pointer at the right side after it reaches the left end of the screen. Same behavior will be followed for top to down and down to top movement, that whenever the mouse pointer reaches the edge of the screen, it will appear from the other side.
Some time ago, we covered a similar tool named Edgeless 2 that performed the same function as Unlimited Mouse, but Edgeless 2 provides separate options to wrap mouse pointer in vertical, horizontal or both directions, so its also worth taking a look. Unlock Mouse is a lightweight tool and works on all version of Windows, both 32-bit and 64-bit OS editions. We tested it on Windows 7 Ultimate.
