How to Turn On or Off Snap Pointer to Default Button

If you want the mouse pointer to move automatically to the default button in the dialog box in Windows 10, then follow these steps:

Launch Mouse Properties.

Go to the “Pointer Options” tab.

In the “Snap To” section, you’ll find the “Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box” option. Select it.

Hit the “OK” button at the bottom.

Note: If you do not wish to use this feature, uncheck the above option and click on the “OK” button at the bottom.

Alternate Method

Start Registry Editor. Before proceeding, I suggest you backup the Registry.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Mouse.

Double-click SnapToDefaultButton in the right pane.

Enter 0 (to disable) or 1 (to enable) in the Value data field.

Click the OK button.

Sign out and then sign back in.

That’s it.
