  1. macrumors newbie

    Aug 1, 2008
    I am new to MACs and OSX. I just recently switched from Windows. I like the MAC so far, but there are a few annoyances that I am trying to get past.
    I have a Macbook Pro Retina and I usually use it with 3 external monitors.
    I have a window opened on monitor 1 and another on monitor 2. I am working on the app that is opened on #1. Then I move my mouse over to monitor #2 and click a link or a button. It doesn't work, because the FIRST click when moving to another window is making the window active. Then I click again, and then the link or button works.
    So basically, I have to click in a window once to activate it, and then click whatever it is I want to do within that window.
    I know this sounds very trivial, but it is driving me crazy.
    In Windows 7 (and lower versions), you can click a link in an inactive window, and it will work and also make the window active.

    Does anyone know of a tweak or hack, or app that might do this for me?
