I have 2 monitors on a Mac Mini (El Capitan) both plugged via HDMI.
Whenever I move the mouse from one monitor to the other, I cannot directly interact with the applications on the screen where the mouse is. I must first click on the mouse.
Weirder still, this does not apply for right-clicks. If I move the mouse to another monitor, I can for instance right-click on a Finder window and create a new folder. But I will not be able to type the folder name.
I would like to be able to use both monitors seamlessly: is it possible?
This question was incorrectly flagged as a duplicate of How can I make focus follow the mouse cursor?.
I am not trying to "bring a window topmost" when I move the mouse over it.
I would like to be able to interact with any graphical interface on any of my monitors in a normal fashion, without the extraneous click currently required when moving the mouse to a different monitor.
Doing the following has no effect (as far as I can tell)
defaults write com.apple.Terminal FocusFollowsMouse -string YES defaults write com.apple.x11 wm_ffm true
I am currently using El Capitan but I am able to upgrade to Sierra. I could also install a third-party app, though I would prefer a native solution.
