I'm currently using 2 screens for work and I CMD-Tab a lot. But I always have to move the mouse to the other screen.

Is there a shortcut / an app to center the mouse on the current window?

Keyboard Maestro can be setup to do this. I know this is a heavy weight solution for a simple task. However, if your already have KM or if you find value in it for automating other tasks, it is a great option.

Here is how to set it up: enter image description here

Note: this is centered. The (0,0) is relative to the center of the window.

  • I made a correction. Originally answered this to center to the screen and not to the current window as requested.

BetterTouchTool, then add a keyboard/trackpad shortcut


  • This won't move the mouse to the middle of active window but to fixed location. May 13, 2015 at 11:23

I know this is an old question, but couldn't find a simple solution even in 2020, so I have written a tiny app to achieve my use case.

You can grab the app (.zip file containing an .app file) from the link below: https://github.com/eucrasia/MoveCursorToCenterOfActiveWindow/releases/tag/v0.1
