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. – sebastienvg Aug 2 '16 at 20:02
