This tweak makes you most control the Window focus, therefore wherever you move your mouse the window will become active, similar to X-Windows on Unix.

Open you registry and find the key below.

Create a new DWORD value called 'ActiveWindowTracking', or modify the existing value, to equal '1' for enabled.

Note: Restart your computer for the changes to take affect.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]
Value Name: ActiveWindowTracking
Data Type: REG_DWORD
