When you have multiple displays and try to move your cursor or windows between monitors, they would normally get stuck if the display borders don't align at the crossing point.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, it is now easier to move your cursor and windows between monitors, by letting your cursor and windows jump over areas where they would previously get stuck.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Ease cursor movement between displays for your account in Windows 11.
