I've been playing many games on a multimonitor hookup, and the games have always locked the mouse inside automatically...?

Some people need a second monitor on during gaming, but if you don't, I would disable it. Activate the charms menu (upper or lower right corner), then go to devices, second screen and select PC screen only or second screen only if that's what you play on, the screen will go to sleep so you don't need to turn it off. Then after gaming go back and redo it except select extend (or duplicate if you use that). Uses less gpu memory, keeps the gpu cooler, and avoids the mouse moving between screens issue. If not using Windows 8 or 2012, you can do it with right click desktop->screen resolution, or maybe there's some program to automate the process out there.

I registered just to say thanks for this recommendation.
This is necessary not only for running borderless windowed mode with multiple displays, but also for disabling mouse scrolling (which the currently most popular game in the world does not allow) in favor of keyboard scrolling.
Btw I know many gamers who are using underdeveloped open source overlay software that functions ONLY when fullscreen mode is disabled.
@replies saying OP's contribution is useless....you really must be sooo bored with your lives to be finding time and reasons for such "critique". I'm glad I'm not you haha

I also wanted to reply so Im a new registrant.
Thanks for this suggestion. It does holp a lot in this case.
I still have a problem, though that I am struggling with.
Windows 8 has that "charms Bar" on the right and the App bar on the left. When in windowed mode it will activate these corners when my mouse travels over them. This is a pain because if I click and i'm over there it activates whatever item I am hovering over.
I'm looking for an ability to disable these menus on one monitor and leave it active on the other. Now it will activate no matter what monitor corner I hover over.
I'm going to try Classic Shell.
It has the ability to disable the Charms bar. I'll report back. In War Thunder (game) I am constantly getting that charms bar showing up so hopefully this will help.

Tested and I can say that after several hours of playing War Thunder I never once went out of window to my other screen using the tool you suggested and I never once saw the Charms. Finally I can play/work in peace!

This is a great tool. I sometimes have issues. I know gta4 and world in conflict have issues for me!
