Can you help me with a dual monitor mouse switch problem during game play?

Just recently, I set up my dual monitor. One is 17″ and another is 21,5″. I watched some tutorials on YouTube and I set it up very easily.

But when I play games, I need to hit [CTRL]+[ESC] to minimize the game and pull mouse onto the other monitor. I hope I can find some program, so I just press a button and I have the mouse on other monitor. Please help.

    well what I've been doing for the past 2+ years of dual-monitoring and gaming is that i press Alt+Tab to get out of the game and back into my windows desktop. I found it annoying at first but after a bit you get used to it and do it without any thought.

    In my opinion using a program for that might be a problem because if you play FPS games and your mouse goes off boundaries of the game screen (which won't happen with no extra programs installed) then you are going to miss some action .

    Sometimes it's better to do more key-pressing than make it automated.

    if you are using nvidia, use the multiple monitor option to fix it.

    Perhaps this can help
    1) Install the tool and Go to the window Settings then "Add a new window rule to the current list"
    2) Give name it and fill out the directory for your game
    3) Under your new rule go to the "Startup" tab and check the "Ignore deactivation", Apply and Ok your settings

    Games usually take full control of the input devices and "locking" them to the application. The easiest thing to get out usually is pressing ALT + TAB.
