    Cursor Lock is a utility program that confines the mouse cursor to a selected area on the screen. This is most useful in multi-monitor setups, addressing a common oversight in some applications (mostly games) whereby they allow the mouse cursor to drift into other unwanted screens. In video games, this can also lead to minimizing the game window if the cursor has drifted into another screen and the mouse is clicked accidentally. Cursor Lock can also overcome cursor drifting problems in windowed applications and games.

    • Locking only when focused–requires no special user interaction, nor does it interfere with task switching between screens
    • Uses a superior method of capturing the cursor compared to other solutions (e.g. MouseTrap)
    • Ability to open one program and lock another allows Cursor Lock to work well with launcher programs
    • Can confine the cursor to window borders, in addition to a whole screen
    • Customizable hotkeys allow for complete control of locking in any situation
    • Alternate locking modes that run in the background for full user control and special circumstances
    • Intuitive GUI support program for quick setup of Cursor Lock shortcuts
    • Integrated help system for shortcut setup program
    • Highly optimized and efficient locking program that uses practically no memory or CPU

    Virustotal has 1 hit but I'm willing to bet it is a false positive.

    (hank) I use this program often for games in windowed mode that I don't want to accidentally click outside of.​
