I have connected my macBookPro multiples screens from left to right, 1,2,3,4,5...

Is there any keyboard shortcut to just move my cursor from monitor 1 to monitor 5 without me needing to drag my mouse all the way?

Or possibly a keyboard shortcut that would also move my cursor to the new focused(I mean if I switch apps using Cmmd + Tab) app

There's no shortcut to my knowledge but if you are willing to get your hands a little dirty you can easily achieve this with a combination of 3rd party software, here is how I'd go about it:

  • Download and install MouseTools.
  • Download and install Keyboard Maestro.
  • Add KM Macro based on keys combination (to switch from one screen to another, one Macro for each display).
  • Finally for each macro add the Shell action with MouseTools -x xValue -y yValue (which are the coordinate on the display where you want the mouse to land).
  • It's really easy, you can get the mouse position by running ./MouseTool -location so do that when the mouse is at the centre of your display, repeat on the other one and use these values in the macros. Commented Aug 2, 2016 at 20:02
