PointerSnapTo

In earlier versions of Microsoft Office, when closing a modified document the mouse pointer would 'snap to' the dialog asking if you'd like to save the changes to the document. That behavior changed with Office 2010, the mouse pointer doesn't move. This program moves the mouse pointer to the center of that dialog.

PointerSnapTo will only be useful if:

  • You have Microsoft Office 2010 or later installed.
  • You want the mouse pointer to move to the center of the dialog that asks if you'd like to save changes (when you are closing a modified Office document).

While the default position of the pointer is the center of the dialog, you can modify this behavior, see the Customize Settings Dialog or the Help file for more information.

PointerSnapTo can also work with other programs, see the Customize Settings Dialog or the Help file for more information.

This program is not a substitute for enabling the 'Snap To' feature in your mouse settings. For example, in Windows 7 and 10, in Control Panel - Mouse - Pointer Options - you can check "Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box". That setting works with many programs, it also works with some dialogs in MS Office (but not all).
