Yes, thats right, contrary to most others, I want to increase the size of the detection for hot corners. Specifically the start and open programs ones (left side).

This is because I recently changed to a dual monitor set up, and unless i get the top/bottom 5px (seems like 5px, but that's a guess) of the left hand side of the screen, my mouse jumps into my other monitor.
This has really been bugging me the last few days becase I had gotten used to quickly moving the mouse over to the left until it stopped, then going up/down depending on what hot corner I wanted. Of course, that is now in muscle memory and I keep jumping screens by mistake. I am starting to remember, but as I said, the detection is so small I keep missing it.

Any help? Couldn't find anything on google but I swear I saw someone post here before to decrease them with a registry tweak, however I can't find that now either.

The shared edge corners are "sticky", so you could just get used to moving to the horizontal edge (top or bottom) and sliding over till you hit the hot spot, which captures your pointer and keeps it from going to the other display...

Actually feel really stupid now. Why didn't I think of that :s

I was trying to go diagonally and hit the 5px tall edge. :laugh:

Thanks for that, I'll just have to keep reminding myself and eventually it becomes second nature
