    A friend of mine is using a karaoke program (kjams) to host shows, and he is constantly moving the cursor onto the 2nd monitor not realizing where it went.

    Is there a way to prevent the cursor from leaving the main display?

    (I've tried moving the 2nd monitor arrangement so it's hard to get to, but unfortunately he ends up with the cursor on the 2nd monitor with no way to get it back!).

    That's not how dual monitors work. Tell your friend to pay more attention. :rolleyes:

    Under a Karaoke setup, the monitors don't function exactly like regular monitors.

    They are used in completely different environment.

    A) One monitor faces the audience, and your computer monitor faces you in sometimes the opposite direction.

    B) The places are usually pretty dark, and the karaoke monitor is sometimes 10-30 feet away from you, making it impossible to see the cursor from that distance.

    C) Sometimes, you might have 3 monitors attached, exacerbating the problem even more.

    Does anyone know of a utility that will restrict a cursor to a single monitor?
