Windows 10 brought a lot of changes to the world of Windows. Most of these went over quite well along with Windows users, however, some did not actually. One of the changes that users REALLY didn’t even appreciate is the fact that Microsoft decided. In order to take the option to turn sticky corners off whenever using more than one monitor off away from Windows 10 users. The option was previously present in Windows 7, Windows 8, and also Windows 8.1. And almost every single Windows user who used up to one monitor loved this feature as sticky corners can be really annoying and frustrating as well. In this article, we are going to talk about How To Disable Sticky Corners In Windows 10. Let’s begin!

I mean, who won’t be infuriated when their pointer simply sticks to one corner for a couple of seconds as well. That feels like an eternity whenever they are trying to move it from one monitor to another as well. To the dismay of a lot of Windows users who upgraded to Windows 10. The option to turn off sticky corners no longer exists. However, this issue is not being raised as much as it should be. It is really severe a problem that many Windows users have opted to roll back to older versions of the OS as well. Fortunately, if you guys are a Windows 10 user who really wants to get rid of sticky corners. And is willing to put in some work to do so, you guys actually can disable those pesky sticky corners.

The first half of disabling sticky corners is also disabling the Snap feature that every version of Windows after Windows XP comes along with. Turning off the Snap feature will permit you to freely move application windows between monitors without even them sticking. (Or snapping, to be more precise) to any one of the four corners of the monitor as well. To turn off Snap, you have to: Note: In Windows 8.1, 8 and 7 changing the value of the MouseCornerClipLength registry key from 6 to 0 was able to disable Sticky corners. However, unfortunately this trick doesn’t really seem to work in Windows 10 as well.

Steps

  • Just hold the Windows Key and click on I. Tap on System.
  • Tap on Multitasking in the left pane. Now under the Snap category in the right pane, just turn the slider directly. Below the Arrange windows automatically by dragging them to the sides or corners of the screen option off. Doing this will turn off the Snap.
  • When Snap has been disabled, you guys can move on to the second half of disabling sticky corners in Windows 10. The half that basically involves some fiddling around along with your computer’s registry. To completely disable sticky corners in Windows 10, you have to:
  • Tap on Windows Logo key + R in order to open a Run
  • Type Regedit into the Run dialog and then click on the Enter key in order to open the Registry Editor.
  • In the Registry Editor, just navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\EdgeUi.
  • Now tap on the EdgeUi key in the left pane in order to display its contents in the right pane.
  • Right-tap on an empty space in the right pane, hover over New, and tap on DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  • Then just name the new DWORD value MouseMonitorEscapeSpeed.
  • Double-tap on MouseMonitorEscapeSpeed, change its value data to 1, and tap on OK.
  • Restart your PC, and as soon as it boots up, you guys will notice that there is very, very little to no stickiness in your monitors’ corners as well.

PRO TIP:

If the issue is along with your PC or a laptop or notebook you should try to use Restoro Repair. That can scan the repositories as well as replace corrupt and missing files. This works in actually most of the cases, where the issue is originated because of system corruption. You guys can download Restoro via Clicking Hereas well.

Use the NSM App

Officially, MS is also working on the issue. Unofficially, an app called NSM has been developed in order to address the issue. If the method above doesn’t really help, then you can get the app from here and then just install it.

  • From the left-hand menu, tap on Multitasking, and in the right window pane, then you guys would see a category that is called Snap.
  • Just Disable the toggle under “Arrange windows automatically by dragging them to the sides or corners of the screen”.

TIP: If none of the Methods have really resolved the issue for you. Then we recommend you to use Restoro Repair Tool which can also scan the repositories in order to replace corrupt as well as missing files.
