Windows – Mouse cursor on multiple screens with different PPI

mouse-cursormultiple-monitorsresolutionwindows 10

I'm using a 4K display along with a Full HD display with both almost the same physical size and it brings some mouse cursor problems to me working with it on the default Windows settings.

As the mouse movement speed depends on the pixels, it's very slow on the 4K display and very fast on the Full HD display.
Is there a windows setting or application to move the mouse depending on the visible distance and not the pixels?

Another problem is the virtual wall between the screens I can't move the cursor from the upper half of the 4K screen to the Full HD screen:

How is it possible to virtually stretch the cursor transition area of the Full HD screen to the one of the 4K monitor?

The smallest problem, nevertheless painful, is the cursor size which varies between the screens. Is there a way to keep the same visual mouse size on both screens?

Cursor speed

It appears that Microsoft has finally fixed the mouse speed issue in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16273 so most probably the fix will be in Fall Creators Update (2017). It is activated by changing the scaling of a screen.

There were three projects which address the cursor speed problem on multiple screens with different resolutions.

  • DpiGonzales on github which works very well on my system - thanks to Sandor Drieënhuizen for developping the tool and for sharing the link
  • There is a project called LittleBigMouse on github, which is in alpha state and not stable on my system.
  • The most configurable program I've found is Custom Screen Speed on its developers website, but the configuration has to be set manually and it is not stored. Therefore it has to be reconfigured at each system start. Custom Screen Speed
