Since i’m running Windows 8.1 and VMware Workstation 10.x I have a lot of issues with my Mouse on my 2nd screen. Some of the issues i had:

  • Scrolling in windows is not possible (mouse jumps to a corner)
  • Mouse out of sync in a VM
  • Have to click multiple times for what is a normal 1 click (like selecting an icon)

I applied all the latest patches, even reïnstalleerd VMware Workstation but nothing seems to work.


The final solution i found was modifying the compatibility settings for the VMware.exe file. Go to the installation folder of VMware Workstation (normally: %programfiles%/vmware/vmware workstation/) and look for vmware.exe

Then follow these steps:

  1. right click vmware.exe
  2. choose properties
  3. Go to the 2nd tab (compatibility)
  4. Select: Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
  5. Hit Apply and Ok

Restart VMware Workstation and voila, you can use your mouse normally now!
